Over the years my kids have had some pretty fun Halloween experiences. For instance, the time Teresa won a prize for her costume, an umbrella with leaves glued on to resemble a tree. Or the time when Guy was no longer allowed out on Halloween because he had reached his...

September 6, 1972, was the weekend of our first Homestead Festival. It was a pretty weekend, hot and the air was smoky from the Pork Producer’s outdoor grills at the square. Forty-eight years ago the town had no idea that this great community effort would go on for thi...

It was Bureau County Fair Week. It was August. It was hot and dusty.

My husband, Buck, had spent the last week, days and evenings, standing in the Allen Building at the fair with many other local merchants advertising their businesses.

Way back when, I lived with my grandma in Greeley, Colorado. I stayed with her for a year. I was in the third grade.  My dad was recovering from a serious construction accident.

In today’s world we search for good news. If you watch cable news networks and listen to radio, you will be hard put to find any.  Maybe that is why so many of us remember Princeton as a home town where people weren’t afraid of letting their kids roam the neighborhoods...

You may or may not be a fan of the game of golf.  But during this week in Augusta, Georgia, there is a battle going on that equals the world series in the game of golf. It is a battle for the coveted “green jacket”…The Masters Tournament.

I first became aware of the tou...
