  1. Age is something that happens, and I’m happy to celebrate another birthday today. There’s no magic in numbers, but 95 isn’t bad.
  2. We have attended retirement parties for two prominent men in our community, dentist Dr. John Darling, and banker Ken Martin.
  3. A new book on our war of independence, “Band of Giants,” by Jack Kelly is a succinct description of the amateur soldiers who won that war, despite the many personal conflicts among them.
  4. Our state had a great stake in World War II, with Boeing, and Hanford, and the building of ships and the smelting of aluminum.
  5. Ken Burns’ epic television special on the two Roosevelts is drawing a lot of attention.
