  • COLUMN: Some things just shouldn’t be said to strangers

    As a journalist, even I know there are certain questions that shouldn’t be asked and certain things that shouldn’t be said.
    Let it be known that these questions differ from the ones that people don’t want to answer — you should always ask those. But I digress.
    “How many months?” Or, “when is the baby due?”
    “Are you old enough to get married?”

  • Faith For Today: Shine like a firefly

    I love sitting outside on a summer evening and watching the fireflies come out. As the sun fades and darkness spreads, suddenly little sparks of light spring up. They flash for a moment, go out, then a moment later flash a little farther off.
    Some yards and fields seem to glow, alive with sparkling fireflies. Like most kids I’d catch a few and put them in a jar, but they aren’t nearly as amazing in a jar. It was much more fun to gently catch them and then let them fly flashing away. I confess, sometimes I still do that.

  • Bottoms claims first season win at Ponderosa

    Second place, move over. Spencer Countian Derek Bottoms cruised into first at this weekend’s race at Ponderosa Speedway in Junction City.
    In June, Bottoms told The Spencer Magnet he finished in second place in four out of five races to that point, but on Friday, Bottoms earned the top spot in the D&D Pallet Recyclers Sportsman event.
    Bottoms took the lead from race leader Donnie Sullivan on lap 8 of the main event and survived a green/white-checkered restart to claim his first win of the season.

  • Paying for playing?

    Trial balloons were floated in 2011. Last month an NCAA conference commissioner issued a new set of  buzz words for college sports fans to wrap their minds and tongues around. The town crier was sent to the gate ringing his bell to declare “Hear ye, hear ye all!”
    Transformational change.
    Transformational ... what?
    A five syllable synonym for money. Also a fool’s temptation to open the proverbial Pandora’s Box.
