  • In the summer of 1958, upon completion of my instruction at the Canadian National Defence College in Kingston, Ontario, I took my family to Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, where I reported for duty to the Major General Commanding the 2nd Marine Division.

    At that time, the division consisted of three infantry regiments, an artillery battalion, and other supporting units, trained to spearhead amphibious landings. It had a strength of about 18,000 officers and men.

  • Her eyes wide with wonder, one year-old Addie Parisek gave serious attention to her matching pink pacifier as she regarded the large crowd watching her as she strutted her stuff as the youngest model in the 2018 Spring Fashion Show Thursday.
    Sheila Fawbush, extension agent for families and consumer science, smiled as she glanced around the large room at the Shelby County Extension Office during the show’s intermission, packed with nearly 100 people.
    “We were really pleased with the turnout, considering the snow yesterday,” she said.
