When I was growing up I would see this framed article in my grandparents’ house. It was a simple typed message with two pictures included. One was of President John F. Kennedy and the other was of my Uncle Cyril Fisher. I never was able to get to know my uncle. He had died in a car crash in his...
While the end of the year is still about a week away, many are making plans, or already have them in place, about how they will end the year and welcome the new one. People reading this are likely still on Christmas vacation or just coming back from the time they spent with family and friends. For...
Every so often in a yard or a window around this time of year, a person can see a sign that asks people to remember the reason for the season. And while we should remember why we are celebrating, we should also remember that one of the teachings of that little babe was helping others. People in the...
I love to read. One of my favorite books is Mitch Albom's “The Five People You Meet in Heaven.” At this time of year, I often reflect on the past 12 months - its ups and downs, joys and sadnesses.

In our democratic society last week, residents voted down a solution to solve the fire, ambulance and police departments’ building problems. With totals of 452 to 174, the $6.7 million decision was soundly defeated by Montgomery voters. I attended almost all of the public meetings, council work...
This weekend, most of the United States will try to remember the old adage, “Spring forward, fall back.” as Daylight Saving Time comes to an end. Twice each year, our internal clocks get rewired as we have to adjust to a slightly new sleep schedule. It’s going to get dark earlier in the evening and...
If you spend any time driving rural roads this time of year, you know it’s harvest time. Farmers can be found out in the fields at all hours of the day, racing the clock, putting in long hours to bring the crops in before snow arrives. Their plans are complicated by the whims of Mother Nature, who...
