Re: “Thursday: Today's news roundup and the open line

Happy Valentine's Day everyone. I hope each of you have someone to love, or the lingering memories of someone who loved you.

As I age, I'm increasingly conflicted by these holidays. My mind goes to those who find themselves alone tonight without their significant other, mother, father, child, etc. Everyone who is separated from a loved one by work, extenuating circumstances, illness, deployment, or death.

My husband left today for work in Mexico and I found myself thankful he didn't have to contend with a "wall", just to do his job.

This Valentine's Day I will romanticize about the great love stories I've read and some of the lesser known ones that I've witnessed. But most of all, I will be thinking of my brother who has lived in a hospital room for the past month at the bedside of the love of his life, and wife of 40 years, as she strongly and courageously fights the battle of her life. Their love is the one books should be written about because it's so real.

Peace from the hills.

Re: “Wednesday: News headlines and the open line

Cato.....We have a photo downstairs in the baseball office of my husband and Hank Aaron as they participated in the ground breaking ceremony for the new Hank Aaron Stadium in Mobile, Al.

But perhaps even more important to me, there also is another photo taken on that same day as my husband met Hank Arron's father Herbert. There's something about that photo that touches my heart. My 6'2" husband taking the small and elderly Mr Aaron's dark and frail hand in his massive pale one, and holding it for a moment as they introduced themselves and had a nice visit. Mr. Aaron would pass away not long afterwards. I treasure that picture.

Wish I had a way to share it with you. A special moment in time for me .

Re: “Feds announce indictment of 54 in probe of white supremacists

Going....had I seen the list of names on the indictment before I wrote my previous post, out of respect to childhood friends, most likely I would have reconsidered my comment.

However, I do have a lot of respect for the job Cody Hiland is doing.

Vanessa... I'm starting to think of Cody Hiland as a modern day Elliott Ness.

Re: “Feds announce indictment of 54 in probe of white supremacists

Hubby and I were headed to lunch in Russellville when I saw this story. This is GREAT NEWS!!!

It's no secret the white supremist groups are active in this area and make no attempt to hide themselves in public or on social media.

On day one as US Attorney, Cody Hiland masterminded a major drug bust in this same area, and I've been a big fan of his ever since. We need more like him.
