Thanks a lot, Punxsutawney Phil

Dear Punxsutawney Phil,

I was giving you the benefit of the doubt about spring arriving. Even though the weather has been pretty cold and rainy over the past few weeks, I told myself to be patient. But this is going too far.

Way to go, Joe

Another milestone in college football - 400 career wins for Joe Paterno, coach of the Penn State Nittany Lions. I happened to be at the Nov. 6 game to witness this bit of history. Now, it may not be as important to our overall historical view as, say, women's suffrage or landing a man on the moon, but still, for Penn State fans and for college football, it was definitely a momentous occasion.

Volunteers add some color to downtown St. Marys

As I was editing a story Sunday night, I read about Mr. Tom Heindl of the local In Town Gardeners Club. This club is a group of volunteers who spend time doing all kinds of garden-related activities, and one of those activities is beautifying downtown St. Marys during various seasons by planting and placing containers of flowers in various locations.
