  • I have really lost my marbles

    My idea of shopping usually involves a mall bench. 

    Recently, while sitting on one, itching for the stores to cut out the lights, I spied an electronics store right across from my perch. I couldn’t help but notice young people going in and out of it. 

    You know, sometimes an old man’s curious nature gets the best of me.

    Kershaw and other area entities have pledged their support in theory, but Kershaw’s latest backing of the master plan means the chance for funding that will go for the creation, or enhancement of pathways here.
    In this day of “going green,” it’s a natural move now and for our future.
