Last month, my iPhone 6 crashed; I was crushed. I and millions, maybe billions, of people worldwide are now dependent on an object that only reached the mass market a dozen years ago. As we ring in 2020, a time which sounded wildly futuristic in my youth, our phones remind us of the amazing …

It seems like only yesterday, but it was 35 years ago that I was sitting in the newsroom of The Logan Banner pondering what I was going to write about in that particular week’s column, a weekly writing that appeared under the title, Plain Talkin’.

This year’s regular session of the West Virginia Legislature began last week, kicked off with a prom known as the State of the State speech, where everyone who thinks he or she is important (or should be) is there to hear the governor outline his proposals for this session.

Ok, so we’re a week into the 2020 New Year, and as we embark upon what surely will consist of visual encounters of many kinds, I am reminded of the days not that long ago when the first born child of the New Year at what was then Logan General Hospital received a multitude of gifts from loca…

On a secondary road I travel frequently live two people who either get along well or not at all, I suppose. One flies a large Trump flag from his flagpole. The other, who lives within sight of the first, has a Bernie sign on his carport and another in his yard.

When does a person become an adult? It depends. Last month, Congress enacted a new law raising the nationwide legal limit for buying tobacco products from 18 to 21. The change also applies to electronic cigarettes and vaping products that heat a liquid containing nicotine. The bill was signe…

Christmas always means a memorable time for children, but like some other holidays, it also means it is a special time for those of us who enjoy “pigging out;” you know, that time when we tend to eat more than we should because there is so much to choose from. From turkey to prime rib, and f…

It’s finally Christmas, a time to be with your family and to also remember those family members and friends who no longer are with us, except within our hearts and minds. It is a time for children; a time for good tidings; and certainly a time to count your blessings. It is also a time to ac…
