  • Farmer of the Year

    One would be hard pressed to find a Harrison County native who has not visited the farm of Paul Colson for an elementary field trip.
    As soon as anyone walks into the barn, located on Shaw Lane, the words “Animal Kingdom” can’t help but come to mind.
    Colson, 58, has been around animals and farming all of his life.
    His father, Joe, started milking Brown Swiss cows in 1947 before Paul was even born.
    When Colson was just two, he was often found in the milk parlor not far behind his dad.

  • Grace for thieves like me

    Just when I think I’m beyond doing something particularly horrendous and downright wrong, I do it.
    I stole a packet of Sweet ‘N Low the other day.
    I put it back, because I felt guilty. Actually, I put it back because my daughter caught me, and then I felt guilty. But putting it back doesn’t change the fact that I’m a Sweet ‘N Low thief.
