The sound of (mostly) silence

Last April, I wrote an article called "Switching frequencies" about how local agencies were on track to meet federal emergency communication mandates.

The best Star Trek started 20 years ago

My love of science fiction, especially Star Trek, is well known to long-time readers. I have enjoyed every incarnation, from the original, somewhat campy series of the 1960s to the 2009 "reboot" movie by J.J. Abrams. I've enjoyed each series, but -- and this may surprise some people -- none more than Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.

2012: the year in review - Part II

The middle of third of 2012 almost seems like a lifetime ago, now. A lot happened during the months of May, June, July and August, including possibly the year's top story: the case of a missing Columbia teenage girl resulting in the arrest of an Elgin man.
