George Bowers Sr.: Spring bulbs illustrate God’s work

March 10, 2017

Thanks to an unusually early warm-up, crocuses and some daffodils are now in full bloom.

Roger Barbee: Life is very much like a waxing gibbous moon

March 5, 2015

Last night while waiting for dinner and talking with Mary Ann, I looked out the window at the breakfast table where we have morning coffee. It faces east, and offers a fine view of Short Mountain and its foot that leads to Edinburg Gap. I was startled by what I saw — it looked like a full moon, and I told Mary Ann so. And directly above it was a large spot of light that I later found out to be Jupiter. Later when I walked the hound for his night exercise, I stood with him in the back, looking upward to marvel at such a sight.
