    Playing through

    My son-in-law treated me to nine holes of golf recently, at an exclusive golf course close to where he lives. I'm not an early riser but our tee time was second in line for the early birds. The foursome that started out before us included a celebrity and they were all way too jovial for me that ...

    I'm tired

    I was sitting at the Highway 41 and Road 426 intersection the other day, waiting for the traffic light to change.

    Back to work

    It was the best vacation, it was the worst vacation. After several hours and several hundred miles of countless potholes and multiple miles of "Road work ahead" signs, (with no workers in sight), we exited the tarnished Golden State for the relief of the Grand Canyon State.

    Time to fold 'em

    Dec. 18, 1917, the Congress of the United States of America passed the 18th Amendment to our nation's Constitution. A provision of that amendment was that the nation had seven years to ratify it. It was ratified within one year and 31 days. Thanks to major political pressure from organizations such...
