Funny Papers Again Column | Golf Program for Local Youth Hits a Hole-In-One

Funny Papers Again Column | Words We Know — and Authors We Do Not Know

I am a fan of words. I like the sound of words. I like how writers use words and I like to use them myself. I was not aware of writers as a child reader. My family had an encyclopedia set, which came with...

Worthy to Print Column | The Long Journey

Good day! If you are a regular reader of my scribbles, then you know that a few weeks ago we lost the very best dog that has ever lived. Dirt was what a dog is supposed to be. As you might imagine, if you...
