  • Draw the line clearly with temptation

    The cold weather was late getting here this year. Unseasonable warm weather was an understatement for December and early January has provided a long runway for the winter that is now in flight. This week stands to be the coldest of the season but I’m already thinking I’m only seven weeks away from March. I still find myself saying “I wish spring would hurry and get here,” but the older I get the less likely I am to wish my days away. It’s been an odd deer season. I could write a book on patience.

  • Republicans complete “sweep” of county government

    Staff Report

       Candidates have been beating a path for the Supervisor of Elections office in these first weeks of the year to file their candidacy and one interesting note is the Republicans have completed their “sweep” of county officeholders.

    The last holdout was County Tax Appraiser Linda Fugate who ran as a Democrat in 2012, but this week filed as a Republican.

    That makes every constitutional officeholder in the county a member of the Grand Old Party.
