  • We need girls’ softball fields, but will the support be there?

    Last week I put an article into the paper going over the plans for some adventuresome softball people that plan to raise funds to build a softball park for girls’ softball.

    Another Christmas has come and gone and Santa, again, made his rounds, which always jogs my memory of days gone by.
    As I get older, it seems I spend a lot more time reminiscing. You know, thinking about how things were when you were younger...maybe the  time when you were the age your grandchildren are now.
    This Christmas, Cal, my oldest grandchild at four years of age, received several trucks, some ‘guns’, some clothes and even a real-life video arcade from his second-cousin, my nephew, Jacob.
