  • Reflections On “True” Colors

    I have always loved the fall season. Fall colors are among my first recollections. I am no scientist; but, I appreciate discovery. I went on a treasure hunt via the internet recently and read about trees changing color. I wanted to learn about what transpires to produce this transformation. I found that in the summer photosynthesis produces chlorophyll enabling  leaves in trees to become green. In the fall, days become shorter and colder. The chlorophyll production decreases and the leaves display their “true” colors.

  • Grace Notes

    When I first started writing professionally, I mostly wrote humor stories for Christian magazines.
    It was fun, and I often cracked myself up. But it was also hard work. With humor, you have to get the rhythm right. You have to choose your words carefully and economically.
    And you have to know the ending, the punchline, often before you write your opening line.
    With humor, you write to the punchline. It’s all about how you end.

  • Protecting the officials

    I was talking with a local basketball official the other day about the subject of what the high school system is required to do for the officials on game day.  
    I will start by telling you that, to my knowledge, Harrison County goes above what is required.
    The school is to have someone to meet the officials when they arrive at the gym and take them to their private dressing facility. They are to have their checks ready or the paperwork to fill out to mail the checks to the officials within a reasonable time frame.
