Out and About – Week of September 17th

We are now well into the 2018 football season. This means that Sunday evening television programming will be slightly changed, as will Monday and Thursday evenings.

Sometime …

Several weeks ago, I got the bug to possibly get back into the sport. I made arrangements to get checked out by an instructor to see if …

Out and About – Week of August 27th

Public restrooms are just that. They are for the public. I applaud businesses who provide a room where patrons can go “Rest”.

I’m not saying we should scrub the toilet or mop the floor, but …

Out and About – Week of August 13th

This time next month, college students should be settled in their living quarters. If your son or daughter is returning to college for their second year, the problems that existed a year ago should be forgotten. They will be familiar with the campus and dorm life, so the stress level should be lower and easier to deal with. What I’d …
