The Co-Publisher's Pen

A long time coming snuck up on me!

It’s official, after 15 years of being a stay-at home-mom to our four kids — and taking care of dozens of other munchkins at my in-home daycare over that time — I will now be seen around town in something other than yoga pants and a messy hair bun.

It snuck up on me, too!

Holiday weeks are always sort of weird. None weirder, though, than when they fall on a Tuesday.

I think we can all relate. You come out of a weekend, maybe work a day (unless you were lucky enough to take Monday off) and then you’re off another day. And then you work a few more days and another weekend shows up.

Senate needs to slow way down on health care — or Pender area might pay the price
All of rural America ought to be taking a very close look at what is happening in the Senate with potential passage of a health care reform bill that would undo much of the so-called “Obamacare,” but, by the estimates of the bipartisan Congressional Budget Office, leave more than 22 million Americans uninsured and cause seismic shifts in how government reimbursement programs like Medicare and Medicaid work.

Hey, Class of 1997...I’m sorry, but we’re here
I happen to be a 1997 graduate, and although not from Pender High School, I think I can relate to a bunch of the people who will be back in town this weekend partying it up and reminiscing about days gone by. Days from like a really long time ago, as it were.

Some completely unscientific toughts on benefits of lap swimming
I didn’t bother to do a lick of research about swimming and its benefits. Feel free to do that if you like, but I can say completely unscientifically that swimming is pretty awesome and feels really good. It gets my endorsement.
