Election year blues

Here it is, less than three weeks from Election Day and the campaign season feels lazier than the pet kitty that even now is lounging on my bed while both of the family dogs wile away their day plopped on the floor.

Different strokes

Take the observation in the spirit it is given — free of charge, and worth every penny — but in one minor respect, Lake Gaston has clear bragging rights over Buggs Island Lake.

Going to the dogs

It’s always the same: After a hard day’s work I trudge home only to walk in and find our two lazy and worthless beagles lounging on the sofa, having slept away the morning and afternoon, and the question practically asks itself — What am I doing wrong here?

Here we are, only a few days removed from what is being hailed by nearly everybody as one of the biggest and best Lakefests in memory — thank you, Mother Nature! — when cold, harsh reality sets in: The conclusion of the big celebration by the lake means the dog days of summer are officially upon us.

I never had the occasion to meet Heather Anne Tucker, the Bluestone 15-year-old who passed away this week, even though her battles with brain cancer, waged very openly and bravely, became a prominent part of life in the community and a recurring story in the pages of this newspaper. One couldn’t help but to feel for this beautiful young girl and her family as they confronted her terrible odds of survival. Yet while I may not know Heather or the Tuckers personally, I’ve kept up with their story from afar. There’s a reason for this: the disease that claimed Heather Anne’s life took my father, too.
