Excitement, apprehension all rolled into one (04/05/09)
In all honesty, I'm a country boy. I grew up in a small community and have never lived -- for an extended period of time -- anywhere other than small communities. Like a lot of people from small communities, I haven't made time to go on trips.

For lack of a better term, I spent that time refueling the tank, so to speak, getting ready for the next sports season...

Reader thanks commissioner (04/05/09)
To the Editor: Five dead trees. I pleaded with several people to know the obvious was coming with snow, rain and wind and I had no response.
