Davis: Are you weary, too?

May 9, 2011

It has been said that familiarity breeds contempt. Once we become accustomed to the “new, bright and shiny,” we may come to view that which held our praise before as being “old, dull and uninteresting.” This is true with most things and, being the humans we are, it is at times inevitable. What we must guard against is the need to become bitter as a result.
We can look all around and see the evidence of this unfortunate practice.

Leifeste: Giving a community newspaper back to the community

May 9, 2011

In June of 2010, I had a life-changing decision to make not only for myself and my husband, but also for the future of The Saline Courier. As vice president of Horizon Publications Inc., the Courier had been one of the newspapers whose publisher reported directly to me for approximately two years. During that time I had made numerous visits to Benton to meet with the staff and evaluate the health of the Courier as a business as well as a community media outlet. It was broken on both accounts.

DAVIS: Amazed by our younger generation

April 29, 2011

If you haven’t taken the time over the past week or two to stop and smell the roses, count your many blessings or any other cliché related to being thankful, you might need to check your pulse. For the first time ever in all my years in Saline County, I was actually afraid a tornado might hit us. Believe you me, I had no need to check for a pulse. I could feel it from head to toe.

HOLLENBECK: Remininiscing on fashion, footwear, fun from past

April 21, 2011

People of a certain age share memories of special things that the current generation has little or no knowledge of. Nor, it seems, do they want to.
(Yes, I know I ended two sentences with a preposition. Not good writing style, but nothing else said it the same way.)
Case in point: Teenage interests of my generation compared to those of my grandchildren. The two are light years apart.

HOLLENBECK: Take away everything else, but keep the green beans coming

April 11, 2011

My kitchen successes can be counted on my two hands with a couple of digits to spare, but among them is the green bean casserole I’ve prepared for many, many years. There may be a glorious repast including traditional and exotic dishes, but if I don’t serve that casserole at Thanksgiving and Christmas, it causes bad feelings among some members of my family.

ALMA HAHN: ‘Can opener’ P-38 airplane was one my father missed

April 11, 2011

My father never looked or acted like a daredevil, but in his younger life, he definitely was. Barely reaching the 5’ 2” mark on the height chart, and wearing a size 5.5 shoe, he barely met the Army’s size requirements.
