    The 21st century. Our family was relieved to be back to the familiar world we know and love.

  • Head and Tails: Company Dog

    We ended up in 1997 – not the 21st century, but close. At least everything felt familiar. For one, our computer was back. Not the computer I was accustomed to, but a late ‘90s model.

    After looking at the T-shirt, I don’t know what I was more embarrassed about – spending all my money or being the only person that didn’t realize the singer at the concert was Elvis Presley. Dad was right – there were some things money couldn’t buy – like time, happiness, common sense, or a ticket out of the doghouse.

  • How youth voted

    Brandon Naber has a quarter century before he’s eligible to run for president, but at least he has the necktie knot down.

    The Harmony fifth-grader ties a mean four-in-hand tie knot. More importantly, he won a landslide election Monday as the representative of John McCain in his school’s mock presidential election.
