  • New teams involved make MLB races fun

    When I did not pick the Boston Red Sox to win their division or even place second this year, someone asked a friend of mine if I was sick.
    Actually I was being practical, as after last September’s remarkable collapse and the off-season loss of star closer Jonathan Papelbon I feared it would be impossible for the Red Sox to recover this season.
    As it turns out, I still overrated them by picking them to finish third in the American League East.

  • COLUMN: Put former armory to use

    I am so tired of reading about all the money this county spends for anything other than our youth. A visitors center? Really?

    Our National Guard gave this city a building that holds endless history for this community. So what is the city doing with it?

    Nothing.

    What a show of disrespect for men who have given much of their time and lives for our country. These were men who were hand-picked by President Bush to be among the first 11 units deployed to Iraq because of their abilities to defend.

    The smell of freshly harvested corn created quite a sob scene last Tuesday. No one was around to watch – except for cows in the distance and a few birds hunting for kernels of corn missed by a John Deere combine.
