  • New Years Resolution Number Two

    Last week, we talked about your Digital New Year’s Resolution Number 1, and this week we are going to continue with your second digital resolution, cleaning up your desktop.

    Your computer scares me. Really! It scares me. I have people call me to help them with their computer because it ate all their files, they can’t find anything!

  • Check your bills for mystery phone charges

    Cramming happens when a company adds a charge to your phone bill for a service you didn’t order or use. This may be a charge for services like trivia, ringtones, daily horoscopes or love tips to your bill that you didn’t agree to or use.

    The most common dollar amount for a cramming charge is $9.99, a relatively small amount which is easy to overlook. Some charges sound like larger fees you do owe, making it tough to pick out the phony charges, especially if your mobile phone bill varies month to month.

  • LETTER: Thank you for generosity in "Drop your drawers" campaign

  • New Years Resolution number one

    Weight Watchers or joining a Gym should not be your only New Year Resolution. How about organizing our digital life? I have spent some 45 years in the computer field, working with end users nearly the entire time. If I know anything, it is that the inside of our computer tends to looks like our real-life - messy.

    The benefits of organizing your files into folders, removing programs you don’t use anymore and updating those you do, and cleaning up your desktop can go a long way toward making your computer experience more bearable and productive.

  • Life expectancy did what?

    A new year is a time resolutions, it brings about a need in people to want to change things and do things differently. A new year is kind of like starting over. The unfortunate truth about resolution is that they rarely stick. Probably because we are creatures of habit, habits are hard to break, healthy habits are even harder to create. Now before you get up in arms I’m not telling anyone they need to eat their veggies, but I recently read an article on NPR’s website that shocked me. It was about the life expectancy in the US dropping for the first time since 1993.

  • LETTER: Thank you for support, celebrating Morrison Santa's Helpers 50th year

    Dear Editor,

    Snookie Morrison and Santa’s helpers would like to thank everyone in the community that helped with our program for our 50 Year Anniversary. We cannot express our thanks for all of your donations of toys, food, money, escorts and any other acts of kindness. We could not make this possible without help from the community. We would also like to say a special thank you to Eli Sisney (son of Jesse and Liz Sisney) for coming out to help Santa hand out treats.

    See you next year!!

  • A Christmas to remember

    I was home sick last Wednesday and Thursday with the stomach bug that has apparently been going around the county.

    Being home sick gave me a lot of free time to think about things I normally wouldn’t have time to think about. My mind kept going back to all the Christmas festivities that I was a part of this year. 2016 has been a great year for me as I got engaged to my fiancée Danielle Sexton and 2017 will be even better as we are getting married.

  • What Micorsoft Teams does for small business

    Most businesses still face the challenges of technology silos. Even with heavily underutilized products like Evernote and Slack, which range from free to low cost, Small Business (SMB) owners simply fail to maximize the benefits of automated tools to allow collaboration between workers.

    Now Microsoft is entering, or some would say reentering, this work space again with Microsoft Teams (not to be confused with Microsoft Team Server.)
