    Butcher scored four touchdowns on the ground, while Downs threw for two more to give Carroll a 41-26 victory over their district and border rival. With the win, the Panthers clinched a district playoff berth.

  • The value of irritating people

    Perhaps the best thing about writing a column is having a forum to work out what I believe.

    It’s also a great place to air my petty beefs and hope that somehow I can find a nugget of truth about God and his kingdom to help us all.

    But mostly I just like to publicly tattle about people who irritate me.

    For example, people who invade my personal space. This happens mostly at Walmart while at the register waiting for my grocery total.

  • LOOKING BACK

    30 Years Ago (Oct. 29, 1981)
    Milton firemen and Emergency Medical people had a pitch-in Halloween supper and party Saturday night.  They played a game called “bag-it” where three bags with wearing apparel were passed around to the players. When the music stopped, the person with the bag had to take out an article of clothing and put it on. Without a doubt, it was a festive occasion, one jolly well worth a niche in memory.

    They may only number in the tens of thousands out of a state of more than 4.3 million people, but it isn’t hard to imagine how much more difficult life would be without our first responders.

    While their work is mainly a function of local government, the state plays a role as well in helping law enforcement, firefighters and other emergency workers do their job.
