  • Hart Takes Over Baton, Dance Studio in NE

    Feb 27, 2020

    The baton and dance group, local to New Enterprise, is nothing new to this area. The original group, Xelle with Mandi, was founded in 2002 by Mandi Cottle.

  • Smart Phones Are Fine In Moderation

    Linda Williams|Feb 27, 2020

    This is the year most 1958 high-school graduates become octogenarians. With those eight decades of living comes wisdom. Most of us now know, everything In moderation and we will be fine. We have learned to cope with so many changes. Hair care, transportation, medical care and food have all morphed beyond our wildest imaginations. Nothing has changed quite so much as communication. In 1958, forms of communication were limited. We could go face-to-face; we could write a letter add a three-cent...

  • Whatever Happened to Him?

    Allan J. Bassler|Feb 27, 2020

This caused me to wonder if he came home from the war. If so, did he continue to live in the Cove area? This often happens when I read the looking-back section. I guess I always want to see how things turn out. I would find it interesting if there was a follow-up column where people could offer the...

    The pain in my shoulder that awoke me wasn't an unfamiliar pain. I went back over the events of the day before, trying to recall what I did to bring it on. The sunny, mild Monday, Feb. 17, had been packed with action but I didn't remember hurting my arm. I limped through the day but the next night I couldn't sleep.

There is a Christian band named MercyMe. I can only imagine how popular they are. Mercy Ships are...

    Five years ago, my friend Brady killed a buck that ran down the wrong side of the mountain after being hit with a shot that should have dropped him in his tracks. It took the two of us more than six hours to get the eight-point back to Brady's truck. After that strenuous effort, I told him I didn't think we should hunt deer there any longer.
