  • THE FLOOD OF 2018
  • Volunteers aid homeowners and businesses in local evacuations

    One lesson learned in the 1997 flood is this is a giving community. Flash flooding and head water coming down Eagle Creek just about washed parts of Sanders, Worthville and Happy Hollow off the map. Volunteers spent numerous hours rescuing people, shoveling mud, and moving water logged personal items out of homes.

    This week’s reports of potential flooding should cause those in the flood prone areas to take notice of the water levels.

  • Hope in the night, light in the darkness

    Several years ago I began a column: “The other day a co-worker posted on Facebook that it had been the ‘week from hell.’

    “We had all felt it. It was as if a black cloud hovered over us, raining down all kinds of bad. We had made mistakes. Tempers flared. Fingers pointed.

    “Cranky people called, which didn’t help our own crankiness. We scowled. We sulked. We wished we were anywhere but here.

    “It was one B-A-D week.”

    That could be said of the past several weeks, locally and globally.
