Was the winter solstice on December 21 this year? It seems like I had heard that somewhere. That did seem a little early, but maybe not. At any rate it might be quite a long time until we begin to actually experience the effects of the longest day...

The high school indoor sports seasons are underway. And there are plenty of contests left in the 2020 portion of their schedules. So hopefully Santa will bring some Christmas presents in the form of wins. The Tiger mat team has had some individual...

Thanksgiving will be on Thursday, but we already had our turkey dinner with all the trimmings served up by the Ipswich UCC church on Sunday. They did a drive-thru delivery so you didn't even have to leave your vehicle. But we won a turkey from one...

Let's hope this turns out to be true this year: "You call my candidate a horse thief, and I call yours a lunatic, and both of us know it's just till election day. It's an American custom, like eating corn on the cob. And, afterwards, we settle down...

What a difference a year makes, what with the ongoing pandemic and resulting postponements. It has also been awhile since Ipswich and Edmunds Central have had their homecoming the very same week. So all I have to say about that is just be careful whe...
