  • Bud and Geneva’s sons

    . . . and their grandsons.

    More about that in just a minute.
    Washington County High School does a lot of things well, but do you know what they do great?
     It’s their Veteran’s Day program, which they have been holding for the past several years.
    I’ve been told by many people that I ought to stop in and see why so many veterans look forward to attending this program every year.
    My curiosity was piqued,  and I attended it early on this past Friday, Nov. 4.

  • Warm fuzzies all around


    Last weekend was a first for me, as I traveled to my alma mater to check out the state marching band finals.

  • Time to open up the mailbag


  • Occupy in a culture of discontent


    “Cause it’s a bittersweet  symphony, this life.
    Trying to make ends meet,
    you’re a slave to money then you die.”
    - The Verve,  “Bittersweet Symphony”
