  • America, I love this place

    Boom, boom, boom!

    The sky was full of fireworks this weekend.
    If I sat in my front yard, I could see them. If I moved to my back deck, I could see them. As I drove along U.S. 25, they were everywhere.

    It was a red, white and boom holiday.

    At church on Sunday, people were wearing their colors. The choir even sang a couple of patriotic tunes.

    OK, I’m not afraid to admit it, I tear up when I hear patriotic music. I’ve been known to get a little choked up when I pledge allegiance to the flag.

  • Lessons from a little black dress

    A few months ago I bought an LBD, a “little black dress.” All good fashionistas know that every woman needs at least one LBD in her closet, because you never know when a museum opening or semi-formal awards banquet will spontaneously break out.

    I bought it at a thrift store for only $35, but that’s not the point, neither is the fact that I will most likely never wear it.

  • Grant County’s Living Treasures

    Years ago, the home of Jouett and Mary “Evalyn” Faulkner on Taft Highway was the place where friends of the Faulkner children wanted to spend their time—the place where laughter lingered, music reverberated and playing games wasn’t just for kids.

    Even today on Sundays, the Faulkner home spills over with their grown children and grandchildren. And after everyone has stuffed themselves with Evalyn’s fried chicken, gravy, mashed potatoes, corn and green beans, the meal is topped off with Evalyn’s specialty.
