The joys of Christmas traditions

I have always loved Christmas and its traditions; even as I have grown older, I find that really deep in my heart I still believe in Santa Claus and the spirit of the whole season, and I just can't wait until I see the "Frosty the Snowman" and "Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer" re-runs at this time of year with the grandchildren.

Oh, what a night

I remember in 1971, Frankie Valli, who had been singing on his own, had just reunited with the Four Seasons and they were touring the country.

On a warm Saturday in June, a friend and I went to Carowinds, an amusement park located in South Carolina, and joined 5,000 other devoted fans and sat through one of the most enjoyable concerts I had ever attended. During the middle of the concert, a horrific summer rain storm struck, and for 15 minutes, it rained so hard that you could barely see the covered stage and not one person left.

Tears on Veterans Day

I am still not quite sure whether it is the result of the open-heart surgery I had 13 years ago or the fact I have gotten older, but it seems that I can well up with uncontrolled tears these days due to the strangest things.

Sports editor didn’t “en-deer” himself

After all these years in the newspaper business and being in areas where natural disasters, murders and community political misbehaving's have taken place, it still catches me off guard and amazes me what type of story will really get readers' attention and that will get legs and be transported around the country.

Touching the Blarney Stone: Grandma taught me to walk

My Grandmother Cope would have been 112 this year. I miss her and everyday I thank her for the strength and character she gave me. To this day when I fall short, I feel I have disappointed her.

She was born in Charlottesville, Va., in 1898. Her father, my great-grandfather was a hauler. He was killed when she was very young when a wagon he was fixing rolled over him. My great-grandmother died soon after that.

I have always been proud to be a Baby Boomer. Being born in the fall of 1946; I was actually in the first wave of that group.

Thoughts on St. Patrick's Day

On March 17, in this country and in our community we celebrate St. Patrick's Day, a day celebrated throughout the land with parades and merriment and music.

Celebrating this day is the right thing to do in this country because there is not a race of people who have contributed more to the might and culture of America than the Irish.

Cars for a cause

Under the hood: The square was alive with nostalgia and the sounds of the Golden oldies as local folks came out to admire the antique cars on display last Sunday.
