  • Carving out a niche

    Staff writer/photographer

    Working under the shade of a tent, Hans Landert carved a cancer ribbon from a block of wood during the antique farm machinery show at Robbie Yount’s Bethlehem farm on Aug. 28.

    While the sounds of the old equipment rumbled around him, Landert’s hands moved steadily, sure of their course — already marked out in pencil. On a table nearby, some of Landert’s finished works were on display, ranging from completed ribbons to angels, birds and more.

  • Congratulations to our own Ironman!

    Here at the Local, we already knew we were blessed with a unique and wonderful sports editor.

    Having worked with a variety of sports editors and writers over the years, I can honestly say Tommie is one in a million — not only does he cover every sport with unbridled enthusiasm, he’s tried just about every sport he covers.

    I think we all gained a new level of respect for him this weekend after he added a new sport to his list, and with it, a new title: Ironman.
