I remember after a new snowfall a certain fresh scent that accompanied the brisk winter air. It was a smell that would last for a relatively short time on a winter’s day. As the years passed, I began to notice that this tang of the season was missing as I left my home and ventured […]

I am not a sports geek. Is not that I don’t like sports, or the thrill of the game for that matter. I just don’t follow a team whether football, or baseball, basketball…not even curling! My time to get on board with a team is generally during the Super Bowl or the World Series. Then, […]

If you’re like me, you’re pretty much homebound due to this awful pandemic the entire world is reeling from. Granted, I do work a full time job and am generally in my office at Mars Hill five days a week, but these days normally my time spent away from the network is at home. There […]

As I sit in my office here at Mars Hill, I am looking out my window overlooking our front yard. We have a blanket of snow on the ground and a blanket of fog in the air. Any more intense and we would have a white out! I remember studying sometime in my educational experience […]

When I began working at the Mars Hill Network almost thirty-nine years ago, I was hired as “Night Manager”. I think former General Manager Gordon Bell (Mr. Bell hired me), gave the overnight announcer that title to give a sense of responsibility, and some added encouragement, during those solo night hours. Working alone in the […]

I wondered if it would happen, that is, people going haywire with wire after wire of Christmas lights adorning the outside of their homes. We have all grown weary of the bad, dreary news. Wanting to brighten things up beyond the norm, just seems like the right thing to do. I’ve been told that Christmas […]

I t came on unexpectedly. Right before me a window perhaps three feet wide by five feet high gave clear view of an area that boasted row after row of some of the most irresistible temptations a person can be enticed by. I wasn’t seeking out this display of enticement. I only turned my head […]

I have a neighborhood Gavras Center home housing persons with developmental and/or physical disabilities. It is just around the corner of my house. I often pass by on dog walks…or my sporadic exercise routine. This past year I made a friend residing there. Her name is Nancy. Nancy spends the good weather days sitting on […]

The other day while traveling north on Interstate 81 to pick up Tom Herbert and then onto Watertown for a luncheon with area pastors I had a “close call”. Driving in the middle lane of 81, doing the 65 mph speed limit (give or take) I noticed some kind of truck in the far left […]

This morning I opened my office door, ready for a day’s work. Nothing out of the ordinary, just another Monday. As the door swung open I glanced toward my desk. The front office staff, Linda our Business Manager and Linnie our Administrative Assistant, earlier in the year, had placed an impressive looking plant on the […]
