S We need to be ready for spring

Howdy from the tall feller who is enjoying the melting of the snow and the happy knowledge that March has arrived. I am smiling and chipper this morning even if I still need a coat to do the barn chores. I have lived through another winter and I did not rust or mildew anywhere I know of! All is rosy on the rock pile until I find a problem, that is the regular day, so I might just squint real hard today and see if I can wish them all away! My close relative has been up and swishing around since before daylight and planning all sorts of yard chores for her close family, me and the offspring. Continue Reading »

S Decatur's baseball season looks promising, begins with game in Greenland

DECATUR -- When the term "March Madness" is used in a crowd of enthusiastic sport fans, the image of college basketball finals appears.

Arguments offered in favor of the bill include studies indicating the time changes negatively affect people's health, causing an increase in heart attacks, fatigue and fatigue-related accidents.
