    "Friday night lights in Glasgow is something special." Though it hardly needs to be spoken, the words of Stan Ozark, a football official for 33 years, should strike a chord in any Scottie football fan. However, for Ozark the statement means so much more.

  • Too Much Procrastination

    Mary Honrud, For the Courier|Oct 5, 2022

    I'm much too good at putting things off. Who wants to think about pulling all the tomatoes when it's still pushing 100°? Even though we're now into October (!), it hasn't seemed like fall.

The gladioli bulbs haven't been trimmed and bagged for winter storage. Shoot. I just had another picking of green beans a few days ago. I say pshaw to fall. (I...

  • Shop' Till You Drop

    Richard Noble, For the Courier|Oct 5, 2022

    The internet, in all its vastness and scope, does a wonderful job of delivering us things. Information, entertainment but also a seemingly unending stream of things to buy. Now, while I’m as guilty as the next person for my Amazon addiction, one can cast a much, much wider net. You can order food, clothes, furniture; truly anything your heart desires and your wallet allows. Whilst I (especially as a business owner myself) fully support shopping local, we do face limitations when it comes to choice. How did we get here though, to this land of e...
