  • ‘Treats on Main’ on Oct. 31

    Do you remember going trick or treating as a child? The excitement of getting treats? Getting to eat the candy before bed on Halloween night?
    One memory that I recall is going to the Courthouse to trick or treat. It was the best place in town to gather a bag full of treats. Often, that was the only stop you would need to make. The treats would include apples and cookies and even an orange drink. Of course, sweet candy was a must.

  • Viewpoint

    Won’t be long till Ol’ Lee will have to turn in his man-card.
    Yep, I’ve been surrounded by women for so long now, that my masculinity is coming into question.
    Just the other day at work, the conversation shifted to manicures, pedicures and chemical peels.
    Instead of walking away, I actually engaged in the conversation.
    What have I become?
    Growing up, I had two brothers. Including my father, the four males in our family unit were outnumbered by my mother, 4-1.
    That’s right, outnumbered.

  • Grace Notes

    (Editor’s note: Nancy Kennedy is on vacation this week. This is one of her favorite past columns.)

    Today I did not go to Beall’s Outlet next to Publix in Inverness.
    That may not mean much to you, but to me it was a major big deal.
    Lately, I haven’t been able to stop at Publix without checking out the outlet. Even if I park far away I’ll say, “I need to walk more,” and head over to see what’s new at Beall’s.
