  • Whittlin' the time away

    Late in life, Brodie Meek of Michigan discovered his talent, a talent used all too briefly, a talent now denied him.

    He found it while visiting Chester County.

    Meek's brother Bob lives in Chester. He was visiting and went to a show at Landsford Canal several years ago.

    "We were watching a man carve wood," said Frances Meek, Brodie's sister-in-law. "Brodie watched him and said, 'I bet I could do that.' He went home and did it. And he did it well."

  • MY VIEW: Being bored can be boring

    If I hear it one more time, I may commit unspeakable acts of violence. The phrase ticks me off. It aggravates me worse than having a fireant loose in my drawers.

    I can't stand it when I hear a child say, "I'm bored."

    What's going on here? How can children be bored? I can see somebody like Donald Trump getting bored, but youngsters who can get excited watching a squirrel playing in a tree? Give me a break.
