  • Even near death can't ruin first family trip



    amily vacations are meant to bring everlasting memories.

  • Mr. Chipman to me



    The news of Jane Gray’s death hit me like a brick to the head.  I knew things were not good but I anticipated her recovery.  She was my daughter in-law’s mother.  She was a wonderful person.

    Moments later I received a phone call telling me my childhood friend had just passed away in Dayton, Ohio.  From that moment through the next week the memories of the two of us growing from young boys to college age men filled my head.  These were memories only he and I shared.

  • Sit back and watch him fly...



    I for one am the worst when it comes to getting caught up in the day to day things but I received a phone call recently that stopped me dead in my tracks. I was standing in the grocery store when I noticed I had a voicemail from my baby brother. I must have looked like an idiot standing in the middle of the aisle as I could hardly move, mumbling under my breath the whole time about what on earth was he thinking to make such a impulsive decision and how he could leave such a message on my voicemail no less. 

  • What happens when a bank robs you?



    I was just wondering…

    When people are caught robbing banks, they go to jail. What happens when banks rob people?

    Since we aren’t doing anything about climate change, can we just quit worrying about the population explosion? After decades of the war on drugs, is anyone winning?

    Is there any citizen’s left who could not be cited for “contempt of Congress?”

    Are our “better angels” all on strike or something?

  • Take time to visit the Vietnam Wall



    I don’t know about you, but I’m getting excited about the Vietnam Traveling Memorial Wall coming to Grant County next week.

  • Relying on the feds isn't a solution



  • Stop, appreciate what's around you
