    Signs of a cold winter varies and many of the "tell-tale" hints based on folklore. One of the best known signs to look for in Grayson County is that rust-colored band on the woolly-worm caterpillar. The folklore tells the smaller the band, the harder the winter.

  • Faith in the face of tragedy

    People come and go in our lives. For better or worse, some paths cross for only a short time. Others seem to intersect frequently despite relocations, job changes, marriages and the passage of time.

    I have known Tammy Nischan since she was a child. She says our wedding was the first she remembers and talks about how romantic she thought it all was. Years later, we attended her December wedding and gushed over the poinsettia decorations. Our oldest daughter was influenced by it and when it came time for her to wed, she set the date in the Christmas season.
