  • Letters to the editor

    La Grange fee higher than others

    To the editor:

    I found out the hard way – proof that procrastination does not pay off – that La Grange Utilities has a reconnection fee of $50. Mind you, it is my fault for putting it off, but life got in the way, and I was five hours late paying my water bill after the second payment deadline.

  • Head and Tails: Working Woody

    Life as a potato digger is tough. For starters, I had to get up with the chickens. After a hearty breakfast, Mom handed me a lunch pail that usually contained a leftover biscuit and a piece of bacon from breakfast, and I walked what seemed an endless two-mile trek to the potato garden. I remembered reading a book about Abraham Lincoln that said he once walked 20 miles to borrow a book. I decided I shouldn’t complain, but be thankful I didn’t have 18 miles to go. Also, I was thankful it was late July and school was out for summer.

  • Fewer students = less money

    It’s a mistake, but this Centerfield Elementary teacher doesn’t mind.

    As Nicole Robison gathers her second-grade class on an 8-by-12 rug for a lesson on plants, the group takes up barely half. The group looks small enough to catch in a butterfly net.

  • Childhood home now destroyed by improvements

    I lived in a $2.3 million house.

    Well, that’s kind of true. It’s worth $2.3 million now. When we lived there it was less of the “2,” and more of the “.3.” At best.

    It feels ridiculous and embarrassing to admit. Everyone’s gonna get the wrong idea, but it’s true. My childhood home is on the market for $2.3 million.
