  • Who says you can’t go home?

    I wouldn’t call myself a country music fan. I wouldn’t really say I’m a huge music fan in general. Growing up, my parents would more often than not just drive in silence or have conversation, rather than listen to the radio or CDs.

    My grandfather, though, listened to music constantly in the car. When he would pick me up from school, which he did, more than anyone else, we would listen to country music all the way home.

  • Henry County is home to many helpers

    In my career as a reporter/editor, I tend to learn things organically, by visiting with people in the community and hearing their points of view.

    After all, no person can know everything. Going to the sources, to the experts, and getting to benefit from the knowledge they’ve accumulated over the years can open a person’s eyes in short order.

  • Good Day turns into misadventure

    Boy, do I have it tough. Last week was a very busy week of ‘work’ for me. On Thursday and Friday I had to trek out to Lake Jericho to do some fact finding about that ‘hidden gem.’

    While there I suffered through unseasonably mild weather with low humidity and a steady breeze. I had to talk to all these nice people who were thrilled to be outdoors enjoying some wholesome fun.

    While there gathering information, I ran into my neighbors Henry and Michelle Mills who volunteered to take me out on the lake for some better pictures.
