  • To heck with good grammar

    "Not even a school teacher notices bad grammar in a compliment."

    After lunch the other day with my husband, I opened a fortune cookie with that message inside. And, for some reason, that message kept popping back to mind throughout the rest of the day.

    Here at the News-Journal, we regularly receive complaints that run the gamut between not enough coverage all the way to too much of it. But in the past couple of weeks, several readers have taken the time to send us compliments.

    Maybe that's why the fortune cookie message stuck in my mind.

  • Fair a good deal for fun

    The sound of children laughing, bells ringing, music playing ... the smell of popcorn, cotton candy, hamburgers and lemonade.

    Now that it's back in full swing, the Taylor County Fair continues to get bigger and better.

    We can only imagine all the volunteer hours required to put together a week of activities like this.

    This past Saturday marked the first events for this year's fair with the youth and adult horse shows. So far this week, we've had several beauty pageants - with many more to come.

  • Should this be the end of American Idol?

    I'm disappointed. I used to love the show and set my schedule around it. I watched every Tuesday and Wednesday, without fail. There's so much about American Idol I love.

    It gives the average person a chance at stardom. It makes "Crystal Bowersox" a household name.

    It makes Andrew Garcia's interpretation of "Straight Up" a well-Googled phrase and a YouTube phenomenon.

    For those like me who love ... love ... music, this show is like going into a candy store with no possibility of diabetic shock.

    But, as I said, I'm disappointed.
