  • Staying in on a snow day means kids need something to do.

    Boredom always begets grumbling so planning ahead can be helpful.

    For younger children, arts and craft projects might be a good way to go.

    Linda Johnson worked at the Hardin County Public Library for 20 years. Throughout those years, she planned many story hours centered on books and themes, some of those snow and winter themed.

    Her ideas often started with a book and then branched out to activities based on that book’s theme.

  • When it comes to the always-changing world of technology, I figure I’m about two years behind most.
    I never thought I would text, and now I do that more than I talk on the phone.
    I had no use for Facebook when it was unveiled and now I get on my page a few times a day and even occasionally offer a status update.
    Browsing the Web? Until about a year or so ago, I was only on the Internet when I needed to be to check on how the Red Sox were doing that night. Now, it occupies a good chunk of my life.

  • On Thanksgiving, local hunter David Gibson has many things to be thankful for including his family, the ability to give back to his community and turkey.

    Gibson has lived in Glendale all his 49 years. He’s been an avid hunter for a long time and hunts a little bit of everything including turkey, deer, rabbit, squirrel — “the whole nine yards,” he said.

    But turkey is his favorite.

    He is president of the Heartland Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation and is a director on the state NWTF board.

        Well, I do have to say that I wish the rain were a little bit of snow. Everything is beginning to look a little blah. The snow would have made everything look so clean.
       The biggest shopping day of the year is this week. I know I am excited. I hope everyone gets everything on their list. Before that though, is Thanksgiving, which is not my favorite holiday, but I wish a happy day for all of you.
