    Born to survivalists in the beautiful mountains of Idaho, Tara prepared for the end of the world by stockpiling home-canned peaches. In the summer she stewed herbs with her mother, a midwife and healer. Tara had no birth

    certificate, never saw a doctor, and didn’t go to school. 

  • Today marks the end of National Police Week. We usually see police as we travel along Highway 200, the backbone of the corridor that plays a large part in our daily activities. Many travel between home and stores while others use the highway as a way between home and work.

    We should always be courteous to other drivers, even if they are wrong; it’s better than to be dead right. Traveling down Pun Alley gets us to some arresting stories.

  • My favorite time of the year is summer and I don’t care what the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage says. Summer is what I live for especially here in Florida.
    As soon as fall arrives in full steam I am looking forward to summer with uncontrollable anticipation.
    One thing that attracts me to summer has to do with the weather.

    Friday Forum

  • Roberto Vera, a member of Troop 707, received his Eagle May 20 after years of hard work. He completed the 13 required merit badges as well as many electives.

Several Eagle Scouts from this troop participated in the ceremony.

  • President George H. W. Bush and William Donovan served together in WWII. Donovan passed Sunday evening at the Legacy House, but not before he received military respects Friday at a Veterans Pinning Ceremony by volunteer Scott Traxler, and a surprise phone call on Saturday from none other than President George H. W. Bush.
