I’ve been watching for my weekly edition of The Carthaginian the past few weeks.
Not that I don’t always eagerly await its arrival, but some of its stories are hitting a bit closer to home these days.
That’s because fellow weekly newspaper man and one of my all-time favorite people, Waid Prather, is getting a head start on his good friend in writing about Main Street and the charrette workshop.

Let’s “not” talk politics!
• There is a long established rule at my house -- when both my brothers are there, no politics!

It’s gotten much worse this year. I’ve had to extend my rule somewhat. It now states “No Politics.” Period!

“No brakes!” I’ll never forget my mother’s shriek as we drove south on Main Street in Cleveland, Miss. Our 1961 beige Buick LeSabre was a wonderful car, the first we’d had with power steering, power brakes, air-conditioning, a push-button AM radio — all the features that made the ’60s an era when big cars and super-highways were before us! It ran like a top, except for that day.
Letters to the Editor

Ally thoughtfully pinned list of chores...
Well, it was back to work this week after a two-week holiday. Unfortunately, I’m afraid I can’t boast of tropical climes and azure seas or golden beaches.
Please take time to remember our local “heroes” who are serving in war zones around the world.
