  • Ages and stages

    The other day I overheard two young women discussing relationships. From what I gathered, people their age (mid 20s) don't date the way I've always understood dating. Instead, they go through a progression of stages.

    If I have this correct, first you "talk with" a person over a period of time, then you move into "hanging out." After that comes "going out" and then I think you move into "being in a relationship."

    I'm so 53.

    Currently, I'm reading a book about generational differences, "Mind the Gap!" It describes and defines five generations of people alive today:

  • Tobacco not the cash crop it used to be

    No one ever said farming was easy. But faced with increased production costs and a sub-par contract offering, some tobacco farmers are finding their livelihood even more difficult.

    Bernie Cave is one of those farmers. Cave grew up on a Taylor County tobacco farm. He paid his way through college working in tobacco fields. But today, he's finding that tobacco just isn't the cash crop it used to be.

    "In light of current contract prices, I plan to expand my cow herd and broodmare band and downsize my tobacco production each year as my financial condition will allow."

  • Leap Day babies get to celebrate tomorrow

    Though Davina Gupton will celebrate her 13th birthday tomorrow, she's been driving for a lot longer.

    Gupton was born on Feb. 29, 1956.

    "I say I'm just becoming a teenager," she says. "I'm just not getting too old."

    Though she said she was due to be born two weeks earlier, Gupton wasn't delivered until Leap Day nearly 52 years ago.

    At first, Gupton thought she might feel left out because she doesn't always get to celebrate her actual birthday.

    "I was actually born in February but [I was] not really here on the 28th."
