  • O’ death, where is thy sting?

    For me, last week began and ended with funerals.
    On Monday, I attended the funeral of Mary Zawalich, whom I’d never met, or maybe I have and I don’t remember.
    About a month ago, she called me. She told me her name and said she was 92 and she was dying, but that it was OK, that it was a “happy death.”
    She had called to say that she’s been a reader of my column and that I’ve been a “wonderful part” of her life. She called to thank me, to say that she admired me, that she has loved me.

  • Curing onions, garlic and potatoes for harvest
  • Who drank the Kool-Aid?

    In November 1978, a group of true believers were led to their deaths in the forests of Guyana which is located near Venezuela on the eastern side of Latin America.  Their deaths were orchestrated by a religious leader who urged his followers to commit the “’revolutionary act’ of suicide.”  

  • Be upset by park vandals, help find culprits

    There is a lot about my job that I enjoy immensely.
    However, one of my favorite things to do is to take pictures of the many children throughout Grant County having fun.
    Whether it is at the Grant County Fair, countless school activities or in the park, nothing beats capturing smiling faces having a blast.
    In particular, I love each summer going to Grant County Park for two weeks to take photos at the Little Dippers and Summer Splash camps.
    It is hard to find a better place to send your kids for a good time, especially at the low cost.
