  • Flood help thanks

    Sunday morning, as we monitored the rising water conditions around Athertonville, it became apparent that our only course of action was to evacuate my parents and their neighbors from the path of the rising floodwaters.

  • Read the signs, but know your candidate

    It seems that no matter how hard candidates campaign, how many signs they put up, how many ads they buy or how much coverage they receive on the Internet or newspapers, some voters simply do not pay attention.

    It happens on the local level as well as state and national.

    For instance, last week I heard someone talking about long-time jailer Ralph “Mac” Trumbo running for re-election.

    They looked at me strangely when I said, “No, Mac is retiring. It is his son who is running in this election.”
