  • Goodbye, Mickey

    Someone once said, “My goal in life is to be as good of a person as my dog already thinks I am.”

    In my case, that is so very true.

    I have always been and probably will always be my worst critic. But, in my dog Mickey’s eyes, I could do no wrong. No matter how much I complained about his “accidents” on my basement floor or his constant scratching, Mickey loved me unconditionally.

  • Can’t we find a way to get along?

    To put it mildly, Lebanon tourist commissioners Dennis George and Dan Lawson have been having some issues. 

    No one is saying that people have to be golfing buddies just because they serve on the same commission, but the problem bubbled over into last week’s meeting of the Lebanon Tourist and Convention Commission.
