  • ‘There’s nothing too mundane for grace. Nothing too ordinary. Not even me.’

    These past few weeks, my husband and I have been doing a whole lot of nothing.
    We both had a mini version of the flu around New Year’s, and his hung on for the rest of the month. So, we mostly spent time at home doing a whole lot of nothing, which turned out to be something.
    One day we hosed off the back porch. One day my husband cleaned the kitchen.
    We sat in the living room — a lot. We watched back-to-back-to-back reruns of “Law and Order,” the regular version as well as SVU and Criminal Intent.

  • ‘That text can wait’

    It’s a common scene across the United States: A teenage driver gives a friend a ride home from school. As the friend talks in the passenger seat, the driver’s cell phone receives a text message.
    The driver picks up the phone to respond, and by the time his or her eyes are back on the road, it’s too late to avoid rear-ending another vehicle. The accident is likely to carry a hefty price in insurance, repairs and possibly a ticket.

  • Stories from Sparta’s past sure to delight

    In 1800, several families from Virginia, led by John Carlock, William Swango, Jacob Walters, Sr. and John and David Alcorn settled in the valley near Two Mile and Eagle Creeks. These pioneers built their homes and businesses on the south side of Eagle Creek and called their community Ross’s Mill. A few years later, the growing village was known as Brock’s Station, possibly because a small fort (station) was erected in the area for protection against Indian attacks.

  • Branch resident enjoys 2 week cruise to the Caribbean Islands

    I didn’t write last week because my number one correspondent was out of the country. I had and have been sitting in my TV room with Dobbs watching television and reading for a month it seems. I did get to the library and got groceries one day. As you can see, nothing to write home about, but Wanda is back from her two-week cruise of the Caribbean with all kinds of exciting things to tell.
