Aunt Grace encourages expectant mothers to be happy

in
DEAR AUNT GRACE
tirado.jpg

The husband of one of my friends at work brought their 4-year-old son into the office the other day.
He had just had his “4-year-old shots.” I was waiting for him to be a little fussy or weepy because of the shots. Instead, he proudly showed me his leg where he had gotten them.
One second of shyness, and then he was well engaged with the people around him.
I was impressed.
Being a huge people observer, of course I have all kinds of theories about children.
You also must know that I have never had any of my own.

Friendship with woman makes waves in men’s relationship

DEAR ABBY

DEAR ABBY: I’m a 35-year-old gay man who has been in a serious relationship for five years. During the last year, my significant other, “Grady,” has grown very close with a female co-worker of mine he met at my office party. (I’ll call her Tina.) They have become inseparable, and when they aren’t hanging out, he’s constantly texting and calling her.

Dixie teams hit home run

Doubles are a good thing in baseball. A two-base hit. A double play.
But even better is a double World Series championship.
And that’s why the Ruston Daily Leader congratulates our Ruston Dixie 8U and 12U All Star teams for winning national World Series titles, and the 10U squad for placing third during play the past couple of weeks in Lumberton, North Carolina.
Timing is crucial to the sport of baseball. Major League Baseball Hall of Famer Warren Spahn once said, “Hitting is timing, pitching is upsetting timing.”

Remembering my principal — Elwood 'Dick' Lewis

in
Rogers, Randy.jpg

As Archie Bunker used to say, my principal fought in “WWII, the big one.”
In fact, Elwood “Dick” Lewis drove a tank during the Battle of the Bulge. It was Germany’s huge counteroffensive in Belgium that came dangerously close to turning the war back around in the enemy’s favor.
He served under General George S. Patton, Jr. Maybe that’s where he got his toughness.
After the war, he returned to Dubach to become a deacon in our church, a science teacher, football coach, and later our school principal.
