  • Way We Were: Hunter gets 'Wright' skunked

    50 YEARS AGO
    Sept. 6, 1962
    Early one Friday morning, Dale Wright went hunting with his father and they separated to look for squirrels.
    Before he knew what was happening, a skunk ran out from under Dale’s feet, took a foot-hold about 10 feet away and atomized him from head to foot with a poor man’s Chanel No. 5.

    Like the nameless beast hiding underneath the bed, the economy creates havoc without anyone physically seeing or touching it.
    “The economy” induces enough stress and fear, it seems, to launch a thousand nightmares.

  • Will attorney general’s office keep talking tough?

    Column as I see ’em …
    Don’t be surprised this week if a former social services employee who pleaded guilty to nine felony counts of falsifying her investigations is, in essence, released from prison.
