    BURLINGTON — It’s cold again and there’s snow. James Detwiler dreaded spreading the same old message of a school closing.
    So, the Stephens Elementary principal partnered with drama teacher Chad Caddell to rock it up.

    Their worlds never existed without the other being there in the background, waiting in the wings.
    My dad, Brian, lived in an ordinary, Wonder Years home in Eagle Estates in central Long Island, New York.
    My mom, a year older, lived in an ordinary, middle-class home two houses down.

  • How they met

    A Lawrenceburg couple whose courtship started with a mother’s broken nose and survived 54 years of marriage and two open heart surgeries.
    A Kentucky boy and an Arizona girl who’ve laughed over ill-fated road trips and the darnest things their kids say for more than 13 years.
