  • What, me willing?

    Last week we had communion at my church and I didn’t get to be a server. I’m not sure why not, although I’m pretty sure it was nothing personal. It’s highly unlikely that the person who makes the list up looked at my name and thought “We don’t like her anymore. Ha ha ha.”


    Whatever the reason, I didn’t make the servers’ list for that week.
    When I got the email news that I had been cut, I was shocked. After all, I’m the Saturday- night-grape-juice/bread-over-on-the-left-side-of-the-sanctuary- girl.

  • ANOTHER PLACE IN TIME 8-30-12

  • Bumper fig crop after mild winter

    After I finish writing this column I need to go pick figs. Every other day seems to be right on in order to harvest ripe fruit. It takes some finesse because it is the soft texture of the fruit that reveals ripeness not necessarily the color. And picking only ripe fruit is the goal: figs do not improve if picked under ripe so if it feels firm leave it on the shrub.

  • U.S. 25 yard sale brings in shoppers, even Gumby

    They came, they saw and they bought.
    That’s what Judy Wigginton had in mind when she organized the U.S. 25 yard sale held last weekend.
    Several yard sales dotted lawns and parking lots throughout the county, and in surrounding states.
    Tyler Tolle, of Williamstown, found a unique way to grab motorists attention.


    Despite heat and humidity on Aug. 16, the first day of the four-day event, he donned a pickle green Gumby costume and waved people into his yard.

  • Touchdown helps 12-year-old kick cancer

    Jacob Vickers is just 12 years old, but he’s a fighter and a survivor. He was diagnosed with rhabdomyosarcoma, or a cancerous tumor of the muscles attached to bone. It is rare and the most common soft tissue tumor in children. In the six years since it was discovered, he’s fought hard and undergone round after round of chemotherapy and radiation. This past July was spent in the hospital.


    His cancer is in remission and he’s been able to return to schools. This year he’s in sixth grade at Grant County Middle School.
