  • This past week I wrote a story in the Chronicle about a baby born 14 weeks premature who faces all kinds of health problems.

  • I was reading this past week of the death of Garo Yepremian, former member of the Miami Dolphins professional football team. He was very instrumental in assisting the Dolphins win back to back NFL championships  during the early 1970s.
    Yepremian was a native of Cyprus. He came to the United States at the age of 22 and had the distinction of kicking in the first football game he ever saw.
    During this time in my life, Anna and I were living in Paris, Ky.

  • Beth Wright Underwood says she is committed to telling the stories of American military members.
    In her recently released book, she tells the true-life tale of a Tennessee National Guard unit that found itself in the Sunni Triangle in Iraq -- an area known to military forces as the Triangle of Death. These soldiers used their skills to try to restore order while surrounded by urban warfare. They knew they had to succeed, or their families and neighbors would die.

Let us have it by all means-and then let us have the bridge at the foot of Pleasant Street.”
