  • Once in a while bad news bumps good news off the front page of the paper and the radio and television programs. Two area car wrecks come to mind when I mention this.

    I am closely related to one of our fire department first responders, and he was called out early in the morning here because of a head-on crash down our road a few miles. The injuries were severe, but the occupants survived.

  • Oh, what I’d give to find that bottle that supposedly has a genie trapped inside. I’d free her, and ask her to take me back in time. Yes, way back because there are folks I’d like to meet and things I’d like to see.

    Case in point: I found a very old newspaper clipping in an aged family book not long ago. I don’t know which newspaper printed this story but I do know it is in Wisconsin. The headline says “Brown Indian relics given to state society.”
