  • Little sleep, but who cares?

     I'm tired. Plain and simple, I'm tired, perhaps even bordering on exhausted. As I write this, I'm sitting at my daughter's dining room table while the lull of the ceiling fan drones in my ear. My grandpup, Iago, is among the lucky – he's catching a nap on the back of the sofa.

  • How can anyone survive so much joy?

    I came late to the Grandmother Party. By the time my 30th high school reunion rolled around, I was one of the few in my entire class who didn't have a grandchild. I was amazed that one of my classmates already had six – at 48 years old. But then again, she did have two sets of twins.

    My youngest child was the first to marry, followed six months later by my oldest child. Only the middle child remains in a content state of solitude.

  • Williston Civic Center ownership should not be a factor

     The news that a community center could become a reality has caused an excitement in Williston  that has been unparalleled in a long time.

    The once-in-a-generation opportunity has taken flight with dreams of a home for the arts, hopes for adult education advancements, visions for youth mentoring programs and a place for our senior adults to gather.

  • Deadline Friday for August election

    This is the week for candidates to qualify for the Aug. 30 party primaries ballot and the way things look there will not be a Democratic ballot.  That's because most of the candidates for county and state office are either Republicans, in nonpartisan races or have no party affiliation. 

  • Independence Day parade will be at 5 p.m. on Friday, July 1. down Noble Ave.
