  • What’s in a title?

    “What’s in a name”? Shakespeare once asked. “Would a rose by another name smell as sweet . . .”
    We can ask the same question about the book title of one of our local authors, Marilynn Bell. If you remember Marilynn once surprised herself, but not the judges, when she won the Lane Award for the Most Outstanding Entry in the college writing contest.

  • Dear local governments, thanks for your quick response

    From the standpoint of the newly approved needle exchange program being a health issue rather than a drug issue, I applaud the local governing bodies for their forward thinking.

  • Spring cleaning and random thoughts

    The other day my husband opened up both of the closet doors in our bedroom and pointed out that my stuff has progressively crept into his closet and that I should do something about it.
    “Like throw your stuff out to make more room for mine?” I asked.
    Um, the answer to that would be no.
    So, I got a plastic bag and started filling it with clothes I no longer wear, and then I started going through old file folders filled with notes and beginnings of columns. That always prompts a bits and pieces column, like today’s. So, here goes:
