Fourteen veterans — representing World War II, the Korean Conflict and the Vietnam War — were honored in a special service at this year’s Columbiana County Fair.
Thanks to this gorgeous summer weather, I have been able to take an enjoyable walk at least three nights a week. When one takes a leisurely stroll, you cannot help but take pleasure in the sights and smells around you. The black eyed Susan’s (one of my favorite flowers) are in full bloom. The smell […]
This week I’m going to attempt to kill two birds with one bush – er, that’s not right – but you get the idea. I’ll identify an item that was in Hazard A Guess, and that has gone un-named for several weeks, as well as fill a Let’s Talk Rusty Iron column. Item Number 896, […]

The first was said by a young lady who graduated from Youngstown State University in December, got her teaching degree and is employed as […]
Last week, I wrote of my lucky find at the Jeromesville Homecoming, landing the top bid on my father’s senior high school yearbook. I need to give credit where credit is due. The opportunity to even bid on such an item would never have presented itself without the kind heart and the keen eye of […]
