Spock, leave my head alone

One of the cute ideas that made the original “Star Trek” TV show — still shown these days in reruns by one of the classic-TV channels out of the Triad — so intriguing starting in 1966 was the science-fiction idea of the food replicator.When Captain Kirk or another starship crew member wanted something to eat, he or she would walk up to the replicator and speak the order to a computer.

Wonderful April

I have always enjoyed the month of April for many reasons. Though spring starts in March, it seems to take into April before the weather really feels like spring.Then, there is the fun and foolishness of April 1, April Fool’s Day. That day almost cost me a job, when I left my banking boss a silly note.If one is a student or works in education, you feel like you can, finally, see the end of the school year.

Until last summer, that was my perception, too.Then I had the life-changing opportunity to study abroad for five weeks in Rwanda’s capital city, Kigali. The college program focused on genocide and international law, but I took away from those five weeks so much ...

Family, community get long-deserved closure

The community received some closure Tuesday in the case of fallen Jonesville Police Sgt. Greg Martin, who was killed in the line of duty almost 18 years ago on the side of Interstate 77.For 16 years, Martin’s killer eluded police, with few leads giving clues to who was responsible for the shooting. But a break in the case lead to charges against three Florida men, and one of those has now pleaded guilty to first-degree murder and attempted robbery with a dangerous weapon....
