  • To tube or not to tube

    With the writer's strike finally over, the constant stream of reruns that has plagued broadcast television for the last several months will soon come to an end. And while polls have shown that TV watching has decreased by up to 40 percent due to lack of fresh material, in the weeks to come, ratings will likely return to normal as network and cable stations start pumping out a new batch of shows and storylines.

  • Spare the tree

    A worker told me recently that the road department is cutting down a very large tree about half-mile mile back on the left from U. S. 60 on Webb Road traveling North.

    I'd love think there is a valid reason for this lovely old tree to come down. It's not dead, I know. I pick up trash on Webb Road most days and when the summer temperatures reach into the 90s that tree provides the only shade I have for about half a mile. Welcome relief, I can tell you. I have come to think of that tree as a friend and it's sad to think it may be cut down.
