Has it really been 40 years since a 15-year-old Whiteoak High School sophomore called WSRW Radio’s Willard Parr early one winter morning and identified himself as Bright Local School Superintendent Keith Day and told the Hall of Fame broadcaster: “Willard, Keith Day here. Bright Local schools are closed?” (That really happened. A short while later on that frigid January morning, the real Superintendent Keith Day called in and officially closed the schools.)

    Almost everyone has a Bill Bear story. Or two. Or 10. Surely, everyone in Pricetown and Buford has a Bill Bear story. What a true character. And what a personality.

    Welcome to the Fourth Estate, Hayden Taylor. (A word to the wise: You might want to avoid the whiskey writers for at least a couple of decades.)

    Yes, Dear Readers, it is that time again (with apologies). Indeed, in these waning days of our Lord’s year 2016, it is time for your only locally indebted and appreciative newspaper owner to wax philosophical on his new year’s resolutions for the year of our Lord 2017.

    His family has now had 27 Christmases without him, but his lessons and his love stay with them all. He taught them how to cherish this time, and how special it is. He made sure his family always had a good Christmas.

    I’ve been waiting 45 years for this opportunity. No kidding. I don’t care who you are, "Hee Haw" is still funnier than a clown on stilts.

    On Wednesday, Dec. 7, the United States will observe the 75th anniversary of the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor. One can hope that President Obama – and all Americans – will give this moment its full due respect and remembrance. The Dec. 7, 1941 Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor was one of those defining moments in world history.

    When the Great Recession hit in 2008, former county sheriff Ron Ward endured his share of budget cuts; so much so, that he stated on the record the hours that the sheriff’s office processed concealed carry permit requests for residents' personal protection. The Magic 8-Ball suggests Highland County Sheriff Donnie Barrera will be asked to make similar department cuts in 2017.

    “God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say ‘thank you?" ... On another note, Joe Thomas’ achievement at age 55 reminds me of the old axiom that when you run with the football, sooner or later you’ll get the snot knocked out of you. But you still have to remember how much fun it was to run with the football.
