Exciting times

These are exciting times. Richmond Hill is on the cusp of renewed growth in a community where it appears that academics have traditionally taken precedent over any other activity in our schools, contrary to the national trend.

The season of the sand gnat

Just as the first warm breezes of spring roll down upon us and the sweaters and hooded jackets retreat back to their lofty homes at the top of the closet, as if by the gearwork of some great forsaken chronograph, the black scourge has descended upon us.

Fair play

In case you missed it, there are some calling for Treasury Secretary Tim Geitner to step down because of the way he's handled the economy -- surely one of the most difficult jobs in the universe at the moment. Given that the man's only been on the job about six weeks, calls for his head seem a bit rash.

The death of a Redknot

There is a bird called the Redknot but it is not red. It comes in two sizes, skinny sparrow and fat robin. When it comes to distance traveled and obstacles to overcome, this amazing creature is a poster bird for other migratory birds. There are lessons to be learned from observing the Redknot.

Recently a fire disrupted normally peaceful living at an assisted-living complex in Savannah. At around 12:15 a.m. on Feb. 25. a fire ripped through The Woods of Savannah Apartments off Hodgson and Memorial Drive.

Cutting cooking simplifies holidays

I didn't cook Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday. My husband, daughter and I went to a restaurant in Richmond Hill that offered all the traditional holiday fare at a reasonable price. It was the first time in my life I did not eat a home-cooked meal on Thanksgiving.
