  • Heads and Tails: Lincoln's Advice

    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.

  • Liberty School eighth grade and high school graduates meet for banquet

    There are only a few high school graduates left from the old Liberty School in Goshen, and they still meet annually for dinner.

    Several years ago they decided to start including eighth-grade graduates, and then it turned into an event for any former Liberty School students, their friends and families.

  • Head and Tails: Saving Money

    The penny I chose showed the year 1931. I was disappointed. I was sure it was an important year, but I was homesick for the 21st century. I was tempted to buy another penny from Chloe’s jar, but I’d saved some money and wanted to keep it. So, we decided to spend some time in 1931.

    Needing employment, Chloe and I walked to Mobley’s Mercantile.
