  • Finally finding fitness

    I wrote in these pages in June that I was attempting to get back in decent physical condition. Four years ago, when I started my new career as a sports writer, I was able to get into pretty good shape. I started running and riding in February of that year because of the mild winter we had. By October, I was doing long bicycle rides without much problem. I did a 40-miler that capped off the year and was very happy with my state of physical health.

    Henry County High School graduate Erick Butler and his Thomas More teammates finished the regular season undefeated after beating Case Western Reserve Saturday, 36-32. The win gave the Saints the President Athletic Conference title and an automatic berth into the NCAA Division III playoffs.

    Butler led the defense with five solo tackles and five assists, including 2.5 tackles for loss and 1.5 sacks. He forced and recovered a fumble, had two quarterback hurries and one pass break-up. For his efforts Butler was named the PAC defensive player of the week.

  • Remembering Yellow Buddy — a furry blessing

    One of the blessings I’ve been privileged to have is that of owning, or being owned by, pets. Donna and I have had three—one at a time. All have passed from us but remain in our hearts. Here is the story of one of them.

  • 'Flying jewels of the natural world'

    I appreciated a recent Henry County Local editorial that addressed the plight of monarch butterflies and their survival as a species.

    Over the last few decades their numbers declined considerably, due mainly to their host plant, milkweed, disappearing from the landscape. Without these plants, monarchs have no place to lay their eggs. The larvae must have milkweed to survive because they can eat nothing else.
