  • Pain could be as much a virture as it is a curse

    Last month, a man I know had surgery on his hand, the second surgery on the same hand.

    Some are just showing their pretty bark or their sculptural quality bare of leaves. Others are just beginning to emerge and will be blooming soon. And others just have some crazy quality that allows their foliage to look as fresh and clean as a spring garden despite the fact it is covered by four inches of snow and has endured days of freezing temperatures.

    A woman called the newsroom looking for help.
    She said she was a “sign flyer,” street lingo for “panhandler,” and that she felt targeted by local police who had issued her a $75 citation for approaching a car.
    “I wasn’t violating the law,” she said.
    She said she stands in front of a busy intersection near a shopping center and several restaurants, flying her sign that reads: “Breast cancer survivor — need help. God bless.”
