Editor's Notebook

Ninety years ago businesses which belonged to the Superior Commercial Club joined together to sponsor Black Cat Days. The event attracted statewide attention and business owners reported the two-day sales event was responsible for their best two...

Living in a ‘rural’ area of the United States, I suspect that many of us receive our National news from our TV. TV is not all bad, but it certainly is not all good either. I know of individuals who do not have a TV in their homes. Over the past...

 

My Crazy Life

I’ve been having a rough time with “adulting” the past few days. Maybe it’s the weather that’s got me in a funk, who knows! Robert was home for a bit Saturday and Sunday. He had gone with a friend to Wisconsin to pick up his car, and we...

 

Country Roads

My calendar tells me spring will officially arrive Saturday. I couldn’t be more ready for spring than this year. While we were traveling home a year ago, after winter time in Texas, we heard of the restrictions put in place because of the COVID-19...

 

Editor's Notebook

With the massive storm forecast for the weekend, I kept close watch on the weather and had trouble focusing on other topics. It should be no surprise that Monday arrived before I was ready for it. Among the undone things on my to do list was the...

Living in a ‘rural’ area of the United States, I suspect many of us receive our National news from our TV. We are not forced to be instantly informed and ‘live’ in a society and work place where the national news is the primary source of...

 

Country Roads

When planning a trip to the Hill Country of Texas, we had to reschedule three times. A terrible ice storm had hit most of Texas including the place we wanted to go. Roads were so icy that traveling on the highways was not warranted unless absolutely...

 

Editor's Notebook

The last issue of the Nuckolls County Locomotive-Gazette newspaper included a feature about Susan Rogers, the current Nuckolls County assessor. It was one of a series to better acquaint the newspaper’s readers with their current county officials....

 

My Crazy Life

We have begun spring yard work at our house on Fourth Street. Ten years ago, it would have been an easy task and finished in a three-day weekend. That is not the case anymore. Honestly, if my husband and son weren’t helping, I would probably work u...

Somewhere in the Bible there is a line that says: “Nothing new under the sun.” I believe that whole heartedly. However, there are many things that sure seem “new” to me. But that is my own shortfall, not something wrong with the statement....

Editor's Notebook

Readers are vital to the success of a newspaper. If newspapers were not read, there would be no need to prepare a newspaper but the importance of readers does not stop with reading. They are also the...

 

Country Roads

How we treasure our family heirlooms, if we are fortunate enough to have some handed down to us. Maybe we treasurer them a little too much. Sometimes we store these heirlooms safely and neatly tucked away in a chest, a drawer or a cabinet. There they... Full story

My crazy life

Jacob is officially a licensed driver! I dropped him at the courthouse Tuesday morning and had him call me to bring the car down when his number was called. I’m so proud of him but nervous at the same time. Not quite as much as when his older...

Progress . . . Everyone wants progress in the traditional meaning of the word. The dictionary defines the word as “to move forward or to develop to a higher, better or more advanced stage.” Gosh, I’m sure we all want that. How-so-ever . . . I j...

 

Editor's Notebook

After last week’s below zero temperatures, it almost feels like we are living in a tropical paradise. On Monday afternoon, at least one person called at The Express window in shirtsleeves. That didn’t happen last week. Following the death of...

Maybe I’m considered to be old fashioned in today’s society, but I enjoy holding a book in my hand to read instead of looking at the words on a tablet screen. When I go shopping for something, I like to hold it in my hands, look at the exact...

Memories . . . Not all memories are great, but for the most part, it seems we remember the “good memories” more than other memories. (Or even the good things about bad events.) I don’t know if that is true or not, but I’ll go with it as that...

 

My crazy life

Even though there is still white stuff in the forecast, spring is on its way! I noticed a tulip pushing through the earth near my foundation and the tiniest buds on my lilac bushes. I enjoy watching nature come back to life. I can’t wait for the...

 

Editor's Notebook

One hundred years ago today my father was born in a farm house a couple miles or so north of Abdal, Nebraska. He was his parents fourth and last child. I don’t remember Dad or his parents talking about the circumstances surrounding his birth. But...

The cold, freezing and snowy weather we have been enduring made me think of the winter days at Oak Creek Country School where my sister and I attended years ago. Some of the students in today's...

I suspect that most of you have heard the old phrase: "When Hell Freezes Over." Well folks, I think in this February of 2021 . . . we've gotten there. Yes folks, there is a "Hell" on this earth. The t...

 

My crazy life

Word travels fast in a small community, so it’s likely not news to many of you that my husband and I had COVID. The hubby tested positive on Feb. 2, and me on the 5th. The teenager’s test came back negative. He has been isolated in his room. We...

A reminder that Sunday, February 14th, is Valentine’s Day. So it’s time to get or make that special someone a special something. Maybe that “something” is a flower bouquet, a piece of jewelry, a box of chocolates, or a sentimental card. No... Full story

 

Puffs from the Locomotive

I read a book several years back entitled How The Irish Saved Civilization. It basically detailed how books and education were being destroyed in Europe back in the Middle Ages. As different group of people conquered different areas, books were...

 

Editor's Notebook

Regular readers of this column know I grew up in a house that wasn’t much more than a stone’s throw from my father’s business. The house was designed so my fathxer could keep a close watch on his business. There was even a switch within reach...
