  • Crashing waves wash up fear

    One of the things I miss most about living in California is the Pacific Ocean.

    This past weekend I was at Cocoa Beach and although I thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the beach and watching the waves, when it comes to ocean waves, compared to the Pacific, the Atlantic wimps out.

    I grew up at the beach. Almost every Sunday afternoon my mom, dad, sister, brothers and I would head to Zuma Beach, near Malibu. Once there, I would race from the parking lot into the surf with the goal of “swimming past the waves.”

  • Turn on the lights

    We are at the time of year when time will be changing again before long. Daylight seems to be coming later, which means operators of vehicles need to use their lights when going to work and to school in the mornings. Vehicles with their headlights on are more visible than vehicles operating without headlights.

  • Breds trample Wildcats in final 5-yard run

    It had been two weeks since the Thorobreds had taken to the gridiron due to a flu epidemic that forced Harrison County Schools to close. Eager to shake off two straight home losses, the Breds were chomping at the bit after this unexpected hiatus to get back on track. Add to the mix that the game was moved to Saturday because of alumni activities as well as it being the first district contest and you had to wonder what effect it would have on Coach Mark Carroll’s team.
