Scully: More points of light

One of the population groups many Americans descend from, at least in part, are the Normans. Remember in school, we learned about William the Conqueror (1066) and "The Norman Conquest" without necessarily understanding what that meant exactly. The Normans come up again in popular culture with Robin Hood. Robin and his Merry Men were the noble Anglo Saxons defending the great people of Olde England against the predatory Norman lords, who by then ruled the British Isles, sometimes with arrogance and self-proclaimed superiority.

Teal: Closed school still serves Cassatt

When the Midway High School class of 1965 walked across the stage of the school auditorium to receive their high school diplomas, it was the final class to do so. Yet, 50 years later, this closed high school continues to serve the Cassatt community and Midway area. How can that be?

The tree is a type of pine tree not indigenous and known for producing these enormous, up to 40-pound seed pods. There were no warning signs posted, according to the story.
