The Corvette, recast for 2014, is still a head-turner.
Even if you don't know what an SIB is, and few people do, this headline is surprising -- if not downright shocking. But it is true.
A girl who does not have a brother never receives a thorough education. For example, when I saw that my brother never had to do odious chores such as cooking, washing dishes, ironing or whatever, I determined to do all I could to become a boy. My brother cooperated in many ways; for one, he said if I kissed my elbow, I would magically become male, this chore keeping me from following him around since he was my god. Also, he assured me, if I would be salt on a bird's tail, I could catch it with ease. Finding ...

Pastor Everett Reconnu and his wife Joan Fox Reconnu happily celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary June 15.
A civil jury didn't take long this week to find in favor of Camden Military Academy officials who had been sued for allegedly fostering an atmosphere of bullying which the plaintiff claimed led to a sexual assault in 2008. Given the extended nature of the trial and the serious accusations, the quick verdict obviously proved that jurors gave little credence to the claims.

Major Vertis Wilder.
