Today's Features

  • I have been searching for days for what to write this month’s column about.

    I’ve thought about it at work and at home. While sweating on an exercise machine and at a way-too-long traffic light. In the shower and while watching “American Idol” and “The Office.”

    Nothing seems to have nudged me one way or another.

  • Matt Adams, 24, has had farming on his mind a long time. He didn’t grow up living on a farm but spent a lot of his childhood and youth on the farm.

    His family moved to Upton from Eastern Kentucky. They were dairy farmers before he was born. After arriving in Upton, they did not know anyone and were, in a way, adopted as family of local farmer Paul Avery. He had children around the age of Adams’ parents but they all lived out of state.

    I do believe winter has arrived. Last week I was looking out our back window at a spring blooming shrub, and what do I see but some pink blossoms. It surely was blooming out of season. But one consolation, it is only two months until spring arrives, to which I always look forward to arriving.
