    Chiefland players watched highlights of the Indians’ 1997 state championship team before Thursday’s 21-0 win at Bronson that marked an end to spring practice.

  • After my weekend, I advocate eloping

    Ashley Matthews is now Ashley Drake. That was the easy part. The path that led to that occurrence was more involved, more chaotic, more expensive. I doubt Will and Kate had such raucous nuptials.
    But I’m getting the cart before the horse. Allow me to gee-haw, turn around.
    Almost two weeks ago if you will remember, I went to Beaufort, S.C. to  hold the mother-of-the bride’s hand and to ensure she showed up for the marriage vows of her oldest child.

  • National Flip-Flop Day is coming, get prepared

    I know the staff around here will mock me, but I'm excited to report that National Flip-Flop Day is Friday, June 17.
    And nooooooo, this is not a day to celebrate politicians who change their minds.
    Mind you, I don't wear flips on the job, but come June 17, I will parade around the office in a brand new pedicure and my special fuzzy, fluffy flips. (I crochet 'em myself.)

  • Confession, a new lease on life

    “Quit dragging your fishing pole,” I barked, and swatted my seven year old little brother across his cotton top. “What are you moping about anyhow?”
    Obviously something was eating little Heath. He usually gabbed the whole way to the fishing hole. When he finally looked up from between those slumped shoulders his lips were curled like he’d ate our tube of crickets. I thought he was going to spew. “You promise you won’t tell momma?” he gasped, fighting back tears.
