  • Rude behavior hits right between the eyes
    Tuesday, September 15, 2020 4:00 AM
    Why does it seem like in today's society being kind is a chore and not inherent? I was walking through a grocery store recently, just out running a few weekly errands. I filled my buggy shopping for a bit from each aisle. As I approached the pasta aisle, looking across the several brands and varieties to choose from . . . it just happened that two young women were standing in front of the item I needed.

  • Stacey says cousins are our friends for life . . .
    Tuesday, September 8, 2020 4:00 AM
    We're wrapping up summer! With Labor Day weekend now behind us we can all prepare for Halloween which will be here before we know it.
    This past weekend was a good weekend for my family. My parents have an annual family barbecue every Labor Day with all the aunts, uncles and cousins visiting for a big pitch-in dinner with all the summer favorites like potato salad and banana pudding, coupled with lots of laughs and catching up on each other's lives. It's not too often we all get together anymore.

  • Wandering down memory . . . trail . . . in the woods
    Tuesday, September 1, 2020 4:00 AM
    The great outdoors . . .
    I'm kicking myself for not getting out and doing some camping this year. Summer always comes and goes too quickly but that doesn't mean we stop yearning for our need for nature and outdoor adventures. Camping doesn't have an off-season, but for me . . . I'm not adventurous enough to want to pack on the layers and go sleep outside in the cold. So if I don't go now, it'll be next year before I get another chance.

  • Pen pals? Remember those? Stacey does
    Tuesday, August 25, 2020 4:00 AM
    We all need someone . . .
    Chris Marlow, author of the book “Doing good is simple: Making a difference right where you are” wrote, “We all know and want to be known. That's why doing good is so powerful when the focus is first and foremost the people and not the project.”

  • More than one Marine will be walking across U.S.
    Tuesday, August 18, 2020 4:00 AM
    I've written a lot about my kids, their adventures and their MIS-adventures. Having five kids, there’s never a dull moment in the Baschwit household. Most of them are still finding their place in this world as they enter adulthood. This definitely keeps me on my toes!
    Most recently, my son, Bryant Alsup, announced he plans to walk cross-country. As crazy as it seems to me, he has proven time and time again . . . if he sets his mind to something he's likely to do it! My son is a veteran of the United States Marine Corps.

    From the far southern tip of Vietnam to the far north is about 1,025. That’s less than half the miles United States Marine Corps veteran and Desert Storm combat vet Scott Laughlin plans to walk.
    The 1989 Crawfordsville High School graduate is set to hike from Parris Island, S.C. to San Diego – a distance of approximately 2,500 in an effort to raise money and awareness for Vietnam Veterans.

  • Out of the ashes . . . and into Stacey’s memories
    Tuesday, August 11, 2020 4:00 AM
    This past week was a bit trying on the heart for me and left me reminiscing on old childhood memories.
    Several months ago, a friend of mine lost their home and everything in it to a house fire. I spent the week trying to be helpful and not get in the way as he sifted through rubble and debris in hopes to recover a few cherished items like photos and family heirlooms.

  • Stacey reflects on family, life, 2020 and COVID-19
    Tuesday, August 4, 2020 4:00 AM
    Hard to believe we are more than halfway through 2020! The month of July was a busy month for my family. We have a nice group of July babies so I want to take a moment to wish my niece Audrey Porter, my sister Tynea Porter of New Market, my son, Breyton Alsup of New Ross and last but certainly not least, my dad, Ivan Thompson, a very happy birthday! All of these people have such a huge impact on my life and impact who I am today. I couldn't be more proud of each of them.

  • When will silent majority stop being silent?
    Tuesday, July 28, 2020 4:00 AM
    I read a piece by an unknown author this week that resonated with me on a personal level so I thought I would share.
    “We are the silent majority. We get no air time. We don't burn things down or tear things up. We go to work and support our families. We love America. We salute our flag. We sing the “Star Spangled Banner.” We respect law enforcement and obey the law. We appreciate the military. We are the very backbone of this country.

  • Stacey finds silver linings; wants to hear about yours
    Tuesday, July 21, 2020 4:00 AM
    I was driving home from town this week after running a few errands and happen to catch on XM radio a not-so-scientific poll that I found interesting. The question was something along the lines of . . . “Have you experienced any good from staying home during COVID-19?”
    It's easy to forget the 45 days of anxious waiting for the stay-home order to be lifted. Now that our little corner of the world is starting to open back up, many states are still under stay-home orders and self-quarantining.

  • Stacey does a little wandering and wondering . . .
    Tuesday, July 14, 2020 4:00 AM
    Don't forget tax Day is tomorrow!
    Because of the coronavirus, most federal tax filing and payment deadlines were postponed to July 15. The postponements are automatic and apply to all taxpayers. If you need more time to file after the new July 15 deadline, or to file a form with a different deadline date, you may request a filing extension.
    It's hard to believe we're in the middle of July already. Am I the only one who feels 2020 should get a re-d”? Just pretend as if the first six months hasn't happened!

  • Conversations need to take place
    Tuesday, July 7, 2020 4:00 AM
    Being a writer can be a tricky profession. It's inherent to wear your feelings on your sleeve . . . much like a musician, painter or any art form. Ultimately it comes down to the way you're most comfortable expressing yourself.
    Writing professionally is quite different than the way I would write in a journal or maybe in my diary.
    Am I sharing too little?
    Am I sharing to much?

  • Patriotism means looking inward this 4th of July
    Tuesday, June 30, 2020 4:00 AM
    Fun Fact . . .
    On July 4th, the Continental Congress formally adopted the Declaration of Independence. Though the vote for actual independence took place on July 2nd, from then on the 4th became the day that was celebrated as the birth of American independence.
    The United States of America was founded on ideals of freedom, justice and liberty.

  • Stacey’s incorporating stay-at-home into new normal
    Tuesday, June 23, 2020 4:00 AM
    As businesses open back up and we're all getting back to some normalcy after these past few months of staying home and self-quarantine . . . I think I may actually miss the down time. COVID-19 forced many of us to slow down in our lives, and in my family it was much needed! As I was out doing my weekly errands I realized my household fell right back into the hustle and bustle of fast-paced living with ease.

  • Simple human kindness shines through
    Tuesday, June 9, 2020 4:00 AM
    I choose to look for the helpers . . .
    Fred Rogers once said, “When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, 'Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.'”
    Today, I choose to look for the helpers.
