  • A Chiropractic Doctor acquaintance asked when I would be doing some stories about his profession. I told him I have already written several columns on medical doctors; but he persisted and after some manipulation I agreed to do a chiropractic column. Time to get cracking.

    Adjustment

  • During the last political election cycle, we were promised change, but I have not seen any of it, especially in my pants pocket.
    Then something wonderful happened. I was taking some mail to the post office and as I got out of my truck, I noticed a penny on the ground.

  • Forty-one years ago, I was a naïve 19-year-old just beginning life’s journey. I do not like to brag but I was the poster child for naïveté. I had a few ideas about life but too few to make me a contributing member of the human society. What I knew about life could fit nicely in my trouser pocket with plenty of room for a country boy’s pocketknife.

  • Many think that the sports season for big bruisin’ men wearing protective armor and helmets has ended.
    While football is over, there is another sport going on now where padded men bang into each other, break out in fights and wind up with concussions. It’s hockey, a cool sport.
