96 YEARS AGO
John Bell of Locust Grove was kicked by a mule several days ago. Mr. Bell was attempting to bridle the mule in the pasture when the animal kicked him on the right leg, causing serious injuries, although no bones were broken. Mr. Bell had to be removed to his home, where he was confined for a few days. He is able to be up now but is still unable to resume work on his farm.
I call it “junk news.” Like the junk mail we are all familiar with finding in our mailbox (both home and email), I’m finding tons of it on my TV and computer.
I don’t know exactly when it started, but I noticed recently that I was seeing more and more of the junk news and less and less of real news on the national news networks and home pages of web browsers like Yahoo.
The stuff I’m talking about used to be delegated to Hollywood gossip and sports shows, but now they dominate just about every audio/visual media out there.
Have you ever heard someone say, “I should write a book?” Perhaps you’ve said it yourself.
I believe everyone has a book in them.
As an author, people often approach me with the “everyone says I should write a book” line. They then proceed to either tell me their idea, which I always like to hear, or ask me how the publishing process works, which I find far less exciting to describe.
Writing a book is hard enough. Getting it published is even more challenging. You have to want it pretty badly.

Lyon College baseball Coach Tony Roepcke wouldn’t give the particulars of what is written on the back of the Scots’ practice jerseys, but it does reflect a revived commitment, he said.
“I asked the guys to not reveal the words, but, yes, it’s like a team motto, we hope it’s motivational and it is about our players taking ownership and being responsible for this team,” Roepcke said of the letters O.W.N.E.R.
