Great blessings from humble beginnings

Christmas is all about little things becoming great. A diminutive elf of unknown origins comes in the stillness of night, bringing joy to children throughout the world. A rejected reindeer becomes his brothers' guide. Kids steal the spotlight, while dutiful parents burn the midnight oil to get the stockings hung and presents all in place. And, for the fortunate, snow falls. Christmas grows white as tiny crystalline snowflakes cling together, descending silently like feathers from heaven's angels, blowing in by the billions from the far corners of winter and blanketing the barren earth.

You never know what the band will play next

There are many different types of sports writing. One of the most difficult for me is "writing it tight," or condensing a lot of action into a very limited amount of space. Nothing is worse then having a thrilling three-hour football game that needs to be reduced to 10 inches of print.

Prouty: Woman of courage, great storyteller

Years ago, a woman so distraught over the passing of her husband, scaled the chain link fence of the East Union Cemetery under cover of darkness to spend the night next to her departed beloved's grave. Strange as that story may sound, she was the second one to do just that.
