Friend’s gift focuses on past, present

Lynn Moncus Throughout our history, we have had a number of people in our county who have been and are real treasures.

New view of first Thanksgiving

TV Hagenah This weekend following Thanksgiving I thought it would be a good time to release a document that was recently discovered by archeologists from the Acme School of Home Archeology near Plymouth, Massachusetts.

Canine talks of weather, self and romping

Lynn Moncus Ah ha! The slave is standing in the sun; thus, I, Aggie, have captured the computer for a while and will visit with my fans for the first time in many weeks. Actually, I’d like to be in the sun also, but she may not leave the house again as she tends to […]

I should probably point out here one of my main theories […]

Community pride can be contagious

Illness – Is there gender bias

TV Hagenah Women are different from men when it comes to illness. Well, I suppose women are generally different from men in a lot of ways. I first noticed this when I walked into the girls’ locker room when I was 12. Right off, I noticed that the whole locker room did not smell like […]
