  • New coach, young team ready to start the season

    Kala Judy steps into her first season as a high school varsity softball coach with high hopes in the potential she sees in a young, but determined Lady Raiders team. The 2018 edition of the Lady Raiders lacks one thing their predecessors enjoyed – seniors.

  • The wonderful world of flying pigs

    Every time I mention that I haven’t seen a flying pig in a while, that’s when I do.

    FYI: In my world, a flying pig is something I want to see happen but have zero faith that it will. In other words, it will happen “when pigs fly.”

    Also in my world, whenever I am deep in the pit of doubt, that’s when I start getting flying pig sightings, whether it’s a line in a book or TV show or an image of a flying pig in a commercial or ad in a magazine.

    Just in the past few days:
