Today's Features

  • Thanks to all who called or sent anniversary greetings to Mike and me. It was a very special day, and since it occurred on a Sunday, we had our marriage blessed at the end of the 10 a.m. service at St. James Catholic Church. We were presented with a beautiful silver chalice from the parish, of which we’ve been members for more than 40 years.

  • Tuesday through Saturday most weeks, Bill Geohagan reports for volunteer duty at St. Vincent de Paul Consignment Store on North Mulberry Street in Elizabethtown.

    Arriving most days about 8:30 a.m. — an hour and a half before the store opens — Geohagan repairs and refinishes furniture to be sold at the store. He’s usually finished with his work and leaves by noon.

    At 91, Geohagan believes in keeping active and helping others.

    “I’m gonna stop when I drop,” he said.

  • I recently had a conversation with a college-level English instructor who was lamenting the fear students have in making public presentations. She said the fear is evident in most of her students and yet she knows how important it is for these students to give public presentations.

  • Five generations of the Love family recently gathered. From left, Patricia O’Brien, Jacqueline Owens, Timothy Love, Lorene Love and Kaydence Owens.

    I cannot believe school has started already. Where has the summer gone? When I was young, my grandma used to tell me as you get older, time goes by so much faster. At the time I thought she was a little nuts, but now I know exactly what she meant. Time is flying by now and sometimes I wish I could slow it down for just a little while.
