    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.

  • 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.

  • A year of new beginnings

    So I’m told years that end with the number 8 are marked as “new beginnings.”

    Landmark’s director of human resources started my exit interview last week with that bit of information — maybe as a way of calming my nervousness so I could begin talking about the last five years of my professional life without crying. Maybe they were words of support and justification that the decision to leave my job is the right one.

  • Well, it could be worse

    It could be worse.That outlook is the title of one of my favorite children’s books, and a joke my family has shared for years.
