  • Cranberry bogs bring in the harvest

    Did you know that the cranberry used to be called the “craneberry?”
    When the colonists first learned of this berry from their American Indian hosts in the New World they thought the blooms of the native shrub looked liked the long neck and bill of the crane.
    Eventually, as language goes, it was shortened to cranberry.

  • Leathers retires from coaching at MCHS

    Freddie Leathers, Marion County High School boys’ golf head coach, recently decided to retire from coaching.
    Leathers, who resigned as the girls’ basketball head coach in 2006, has served 17 years as golf coach.
    “I was fortunate to have coached several outstanding young men and ladies, and to have made many new friends in those 17 years,” Leathers said.
    His career as a golf coach began in 1986, and lasted until 1995.

  • Be thankful, join me on Facebook

    It is the season for thankfulness but I often wonder why we need a season or holiday to remind us about all the good things we have?
    We have so much more in this country than most of the rest of the world but yet we need to be reminded of it on a yearly basis. Is it that we are spoiled?
    Or, is it that we work so hard year round to get the things that we are continually told we need.
    Or, is it that our neighbors have something we think we need?

  • Leathers’ last hurrah

    Long time Marion County High School Coach Freddie Leathers recently decided he is walking away for good. He resigned from coaching girls’ basketball in 2006 and has been coaching golf up until now.
    Let me say up front, I am biased towards Leathers. I married his daughter so I’ve spent some time with him over the last six years. I try not to be a ‘homer’ in most instances. This will be a tough one so I’ll let his colleagues do most of the talking.

  • It's time to stop and count your blessings

    By Shelton Young
    Believe it or not, I’m often asked where I get ideas for my articles.
    Well, having a mind that’s a little warped helps. But, to be honest, the stories are a result of mostly just paying attention to people. I usually manage to embellish the stories a bit…just enough to add an element of entertainment.
    Do I lie in my tales? Absolutely not! We lie in order to deceive…and you all are too sharp to buy into that. We tell stories to entertain.
