  • First-grader recovering from fall

    A West Marion Elementary School student returned to school one day after falling from gym bleachers before classes started Jan. 11.

  • The future has finally arrived

    If you're like me, you enjoy watching movies. I love to watch some of my favorites when there's nothing else on TV.
    My wife and I have passed this pleasure on to our son, who at 14 years old enjoys many movies that were made when he was very young, or even before he was born.

    Through the years, the U.S. Patent Office has approved some pretty odd inventions. A mustache guard may have been useful 100 years ago - and its heyday may be coming around again.
