  • We were eating pizza — thin crust perfectly crisp, topped with ooey gooey decadent cheesy goodness that was just the right degree of meltiness.

    As our eyes rolled back in our heads in pizza ecstasy, my friend Tara said she had recently read that the sign of a culture in decline is its glorification of its cuisine and deification of its chefs.

    Bobby Flay and Wolfgang Puck anyone?

  • The birth of a baby boy to Charles and Hannah Jewel Hardin in Milton, in 1820 might have escaped the notice of Trimble County history buffs had it not been for a random search on the internet by Milton Mayor Denny Jackson a few years back. While searching to see what hits might turn up by keying-in “Trimble County” on his computer, Jackson came across a biographical note that began with the following:

    “HARDIN, Charles Henry, governor of Missouri (1875-1877), born in Trimble County, Kentucky, in Milton, 15 July, 1820.”

  • 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.

    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.

    Carl Cooper Jr. has maintained a quarter century of membership and service in the American Academy of Family Physician-the nation’s largest medical specialty organization.

  • Tachycardia is a dangerously rapid heartbeat, arrhythmia is an irregular heartbeat and dead is no heartbeat at all — and I had all three recently.

    That may be a slight exaggeration and a bit of melodrama, but the truth is I experienced severe panic recently.

    I lost my camera.

    And by “my camera” I mean the one the Chronicle gave me to use and not mine to keep.
