Typical of child abuse?

Dateline Dayton — Back on my soap box this morning. Ever considered the amount of time spent by Washington on witch hunts — by both parties? We really need to clean house. Soon. The Washington nonsense has gone on at the expense of good citizens. Our representatives are afraid of work. So they spend all their time on hearings and … Read More

Dateline Dayton – Last time, we were talking about two children shot in the head by their mother. They have died.  It probably is good they were called to their heavenly reward. You doubt they could have led fruitful lives after this terrible ordeal.  Their mother had her first court appearance on Monday. She shot them to protect them from … Read More

Dateline Dayton — I realize that licensing parents-to-be does not solve our problems. Proof: Many car accidents are caused by bad decisions — drinking, drugs, texting, using the phone or another distraction.  The driver may know the rules, have a valid license and still make a bad choice. Last week in New York a mad driver deliberately ploughed into a … Read More

Dateline Dayton —  Here is a partial list of my pet peeves: Drivers Don’t look when backing up – worst at the Post Office and grocery. Don’t stop when they see someone is backing out of a parking spot. Going at a slow speed in the fast lane. Sitting at a four-way stop. Waiting for the light to change? Don’t … Read More

Dateline Dayton – For more than a month, much of my free time has been spent helping put together my daughter’s condo. Before she moved here from Michigan, there were things to get done. Next was the actual move followed by all the little things she wanted done. My major remaining task I have left, is the black-splash in the … Read More

My brother Mark loaned us his truck and trailer. Between the two, we managed to move everything. Our first stop was their storage … Read More

Dateline Dayton – A final take on our Florida vacation: It was Friday and we were on our way home. Unlike past trips, we took two days instead of one to come home, and that doubled our enjoyment.   Leaving Lake City, FL, our second stop was for food.  With few choices, we picked a chain restaurant. Pauline and I … Read More
