  • COLUMN: In the end, votes are what matters

    Whether it’s fetching unsweetened tea from Mickey D’s (my wife won’t let me drink sweet tea; she says I’m already too sweet), or meat in the grocery store (no salad stuff, thanks; I only eat things that eat salad) folks love to ask me to predict the outcome of next month’s judge-executive election.

    I have no idea why. Were I able to predict future events, instead of using this keyboard to pound out words I’d be using it to trade stocks and futures while eating pork chops and sipping tea on a tropical island.

  • COLUMN: Sometimes unaffected, sometimes not

    Unaffected is not a word I would normally use to describe myself, but some aspects of this job require me to be just that.

    Take for instance a structure fire Monday night. Sitting at my desk, almost ready to go home, I heard the dispatcher call the fire out on the scanner.

    When packing up my things, I tossed the camera bag over my shoulder thinking I’d get a few photos before I went home.
