Covering retirement events is a typical part of a community reporter’s job. Such occasions feature the boss commending the retiree, co-workers sharing memories and the inevitable jokester lightening the mood recounting comical moments on the job.

I’m a pushover for these gatherings … actually love to cover them. There are a couple that stand out as extra special. One involved a local police officer.

Ah, time, precious time.

I am always interested in reading, researching, and sharing ways to become healthier.

As a mom of three dogs I know they provide many benefits, however, contributing to a good night’s sleep is not one of them.

I LOVE this time of year! Of all the seasons, fall is the easiest and least expensive to decorate.
