ALL ABOARD: A modern art form - driving in reverse

  • Jun 25, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Jun 26, 2008 at 8:00AM

While backing my sometime-later-to-be-paid-for truck up a hill today, I realized once again how much I enjoy backing up. Not just remembering, mind you, or mind me, but the sheer joy of doing a good job backing up your vehicle, be it your car, your truck, your rig, your boat, your trailer or your riding mower.

Flyers win big in Lumby

  • Jul 29, 2006 at 12:00AM updated Jun 25, 2008 at 9:49PM

On Jan. 6 and 7, the PeeWee Flyers proved that they still had the golden touch even after a Christmas vacation of no practice. The team traveled to Lumby for a tournament that put them face to face with some fierce competition. Bright and early Saturday, the team stepped on the ice to take on Kelowna. Princeton started the scoring, a mere 30 seconds into the first period, setting the pace the rest of the game. Kelowna came back to tie the score 1-1 only to have Princeton retaliate with another goal before end of the first period. Going into the second period, Princeton was determined to win and with teamwork and determination they ended the second period 4-1. There was no stopping them from there and Princeton went on to demonstrate they knew the game of hockey with a final score of 8-2.

The justice system is hardly protecting the public

  • Jul 22, 2006 at 12:00AM updated Jun 25, 2008 at 9:49PM

I  wholeheartedly agree with various letter writers suggesting the justice system could use some resolutions in 2007. How to accomplish such a feat is another story.

February 3, 1959: The day immortality was born

  • Jun 25, 2008 at 9:49PM

Given our abundance of local political scenarios on which to feast somewhat sarcastic musings, I am reluctant to let another week go by without comment. Postponing such pontifications seems as absurd as putting off a fishing trip to a stocked pond.

Phenomenal observational phenomena revealed

  • Jul 8, 2006 at 12:00AM updated Jun 25, 2008 at 9:49PM

Wow. What was that all about? Where did all those people come from? Who were they? Have you been waiting in lines lately?

Pleasant greetings. On behalf of these words, let us welcome you to our section. Since this may be your first time on our side of this page, please be cautioned that while Off Track is certainly not a gossip column, it is today, a column about gossip.

Barista’s extra shot badly beans balding barrister

  • Jun 25, 2008 at 9:49PM

This morning’s coffee had an extra shot of unexpected bitterness as I was greeted by one of our highly talented but caffeinated baristas, “Your paper sucks! Your front-page article about Randy Johnson’s lawsuit was supposed to have been continued on page A16. There is no page A16! I’m going to call this morning and tell them that if they can’t get it right, don’t do it!”

I’m afraid to say it, but this column has gone to the dogs

  • Jun 25, 2008 at 9:49PM

There is a deep sense of non-emergency urgency as I attempt to get my next thought on paper before it escapes. All is well. The thought is here. If hot air rises, why does hot liquid sink?

Mom’s birthday remembrance: Tuna, the Charleston and Velveeta

  • Jun 25, 2008 at 9:48PM

The third day of the sixth month of the seventh year of the millennium, spelled correctly, is upon us. This is the day on which the state of Mississippi, spelled correctly, used to close the banks to honor the birth of Jefferson Davis, first team, All-Confederacy.
