Worthy to Print Column | 33 Years and Counting

Thirty-three years. I started to just put the numbers on the page, but no matter whether you spell it out or use the numbers, it is a long time. Or, we could be more specific, a long time to be married. Fortunately, I happen...

Window on the World Column | Our Easter Basket

It was time for Easter vacation, and that hadn’t meant much for a while in this household, not having school age kids anymore. We had pledged to take our granddaughter for a few days, give her parents a break, allow her to run wild...

Funny Papers Again Column | Looking Back and Seeing Ahead

Before I get into the bits and pieces of today’s column, let me offer a mea culpa regarding some misinformation in last week’s column. I stated that KCHS Class of 1972 has their 50th class reunion scheduled for the same date as the Classes...

Funny Papers Again Column | Crime and Punishment

For this week’s column I had a nice little piece forming about how to get on national television and make a fool of one’s self; based on personal experience, of course. But a situation arose right in front of my nose, or at least...

Funny Papers Again Column | To the Classes of 2022: Dear Graduates…

Greetings and congratulations to those of you who have completed the prescribed course of academia and have now, or soon will be, granted a diploma from your respective Salinas Valley schools. As has been pointed out to you all, your graduation is an important...
