Wright-Cromwell News: Sept. 28 2017
Jaden has been legally deaf since 13 months when he had a brush with scarlet fever. It is truly an inspiration to read about young folks who overcome obstacles in life and make the best of the talent they have.

Slices of Life: Learning new things
The room filled with a warm fruity scent. Fresh. Simple. Sweet. Peachy. Maybe peach wasn't my first choice, but it wasn't all bad. I kind of liked it.

Slices of Life: Scratching in the kitchen
>I'm not a baker. Mostly because I lack a penchant for measuring and exact oven temperatures. But when your kid needs cupcakes, you deliver cupcakes — in this case, from scratch.

A group of area concerned citizens have distributed a flyer about the upcoming school bond referendum in the mail. Look over the "Did You Know" statements and come to the informational meeting at 7 p.m. Nov. 13 at the school for more details. They say: "We need to do what's best for...

Slices of Life: The multitudinous multi-tasker
Why talk when you can type? Typing is so much faster. Communicating via text message or email is only the tip of the usefulness iceberg. I have a compass at my beck and call. Compasses are valuable tools for people who get lost easily. This describes me to a tee. I may not have an...

Notes From the Small Pond: Eleven miles from Mexico, three weeks ago
Banana spiders, dozens, rain onto our laps and down the backs of our shirts, golf-ball-sized, iridescent yellow and green, like aliens, scuttling and snapping and clicking like a Japanese science fiction movie. I feel my sanity leaving and hold my breath not to scream, knowing the...

It could cost a small fortune to get a student ready for that first day of class and then if you have more kids your budget can really get stretched pretty thin. Let's hope all goes well for this year's students and that they look forward to another school year.

Slices of Life: Pinterest perfection
Suddenly my bathroom mirror was lacking. It looked naked. Definitely in need of a frame. I picked a fairly simple concept consisting of four wooden planks to flank the edges of the glass. When it comes to home projects, I excel at planning. My husband helps with execution. It was...

READER'S VIEW: Memories of the eclipse
I looked up at the sky and saw a black orb with a thin band of dazzling light dancing around the edge. The dark disk looked like a wheel that rolled in a tiny bit of fine red glitter with brilliant golden light bursting from the sides. And the blueish corona flaring out beyond the...

Slices of Life: A catfight
Last summer, the herb grew from tiny to medium and produced a few stems for us to pick. The cats loved each offering. Come winter, I expected that would be the end of it. This spring, however, the plant sprouted anew.
