St. Patty's Day

Untitled document Happy St. Patrick's Day - or should I say weekend? Area restaurants and bars have been promoting their St. Patty's Day events like crazy and are planning to entertain patrons all weekend. Many of the Valley's Irish - and non-Irish - will be overdosing on corned beef sandwiches ...

First-grade basketball mid-season report

Untitled document My daughter's basketball season is at mid-season, with Week 5 coming up this Saturday. Coaching a bunch of first-graders has been interesting - but fun. They don't officially keep score of games in that age group. During the game, I'm so busy giving instructions that I can't possibly ...

Successful coaching debut

Untitled document A few weeks ago, my print column covered the topic of coaching youth sports. I mentioned that I was taking the plunge by coaching my daughter's first-grade basketball team. I just wanted to provide a quick update now that the season has started. Our first game was last ...

Untitled document Don't get me wrong, I love roller coasters. I'm a big fan of Cedar Point and have ridden all the big rides there, except the newest ones, because I haven't been there in a few years. My favorite is the Raptor because of the sensation of flying. The ...

How are you? Nevermind

Untitled document David Letterman has nothing on me when it comes to stellar Top 10 lists. At a former job, I was known for my amusing lists on whatever topic came up. Co-workers would challenge me with any number of things that I was expected to turn into a Top ...

Not a four-legged fan

Untitled document It seems like everywhere I look on Facebook, tons of people are posting photos of their animals. Whether it's a new family dog or a little kitten, it seems like they are everywhere. My view on pets is probably an unpopular one — I know it is with ...
