Posted on July 22, 2014 at 4:27 pm

I didn’t take all of my vacation last year, which wasn’t smart at all. I’ve learned to pace myself as I advance in years and taking vacation is a large part of it.

    I was glued to my television during the recent World Cup and thoroughly enjoyed the 1-0 final won by the German team over Argentina. The sport is growing in the United States due to the strong showing of the men’s team during the cup and the women’s team winning it twice in past tournaments.

    With the flood and the unexpected death of Louisiana Police Chief Rich Hughes last week, City Administrator Bob Jenne was spot on when he said it’s been a rough July already for the city.

    When I came back from California four years ago, I went to see my uncle Bob and aunt Audrey Moller right away. As I walked through the door of their Kirkwood home, the first thing out of Audrey’s mouth was: “David. You’re overweight!” That was my aunt Audrey, who was never afraid to set you straight. But as I was pondering her recent death at 92, I realized that when

    Time for some three-dot journalism due to the lack of a constant theme this week and a deadline staring me in the face. ••• I don’t know about you, but Troy and Vanessa Thomas’ idea to clean up the Town Branch in Louisiana from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, June 28 sounds like pretty cool stuff to me.

    I live in the country for peace of mind and I remain in awe of the sights and sounds of Pike County nature. Sometimes though, the beauty is baffling. Last week as I drove down my driveway, huge swarms of white bugs were pitching and yawing in unison across the field in front of the house. It was just before the sun had fully risen and I thought from several
