  • Miss Cindy

    Better than being rich is having a job you love.
    So, if you get to work at one great job in your lifetime, then you’re blessed. If you get two great jobs then you’re truly blessed. I think my wife would very much agree.
    Cindy is moving on from St. Dominic School to the Springfield State Bank beginning in January. It’s a great move for our family from one great place to work to another. But it wasn’t a decision made without a lot of careful thought and prayers.

  • Have a merry life

  • An after-Christmas story

    Well, Christmas is over. 

    Have you gotten your after-Christmas “thumping” yet?
    Don’t know what a Christmas thumping is? A thumping is what you get when you foolishly buy something for your spouse that they don’t truly want.  The thumping itself can take many forms of retribution.
    I’ve never had to give Cindy a thumping.  Cindy is the queen of gift giving in our house, except maybe when it comes to clothes for tween and teen girls.  Take me, for instance.

    I always love quotes and one-liners. Don’t you?

  • Road clean-up draws praise from reader

    To the Editor,

    Wow! That’s the best way to describe the tremendous job the road crew did cleaning up Mayes Creek road recently. The roadside had become badly overgrown with underbrush and tree crowding. It had overtaken much of the space that once allowed cars to pull off the road.
