Window on the World Column | Class Act — To the End

It was one of those defining moments. Near reminiscent of the morning we watched one and then two towers collapse; when we got the news Diana died in a car crash. Not apocalyptic like that, but still shocking and time-defining. The newsflash came across...

Letter to the Editor | Privileged to Have Worked for Late King City Attorney

To the Editor: I recently lost my employer of 52 years, Attorney Peter Anderson, when he unexpectedly passed away after heart surgery. He was one of the hardest working, kindest persons I have ever known. He would always stop what he was doing to answer your...

Funny Papers Again Column | And a Good Time Was Had by All

Last Sunday one of the readers of this column listened, patiently I suspect, to my not uncommon lament of having a deadline in the near future and not a single word written, whereupon he responded that I say that every week and every week...

Worthy to Print Column | Getting Strong

As I begin this weekly addition to the greatest periodical in South Monterey County, I should warn you that some words might need explanation. OK, I can hear the mumbling. “What is this wanna-be Hemingway talking about this week?” That’s a fair question, so...

Window on the World Column | Best Nurse Ever

From a very young age, my baby girl had talked about going into nursing. When her auntie suggested that, maybe, vet school might be more up her alley, she responded that she could never work with animals; she loved them too much. It was shortly...

Funny Papers Again Column | Weird, Wonderful, Wacky World of Words

I am a reader. I would not venture to estimate how many books I have read since I was a lad in Greenfield, but I dare say it is in the thousands. Since July 28, I have read five books, two on the long...
