    Last week was extra special for me! My friend Jacob Moore was home visiting family and took time out of his busy schedule to visit with me and catch up on his latest adventures and new endeavors.

  • Stacey’s day is made when she makes a new friend
    Monday, September 16, 2019 3:52 AM
    I try to add a “Glee and Gloom” each week to remind myself and others, with all the bad we seem to see in the daily news, there's always something good as well. We all have rough times and some bad days. But, there are days like last I had last week that always make me smile.
    Al and I had ran to Walmart to do a little grocery shopping. As I was picking something out, I hear behind me “is your name Stacey?”
    I turn to see a face I don't recognize right away . . . flipping through my internal Rolodex. You know the one, that list in your head that you quickly go through trying to remember how you know someone or their name?
    Is this family? Friend? Someone from church, work or high school?
    As I was racking my brain the nice gentleman introduced himself. He explained he had recognized me from my picture in The Paper. This has happened before, I often forget my picture now runs in the Paper. It made my day that he took the time to say hello and introduce himself.
    It also gave me a chuckle because Al walked up right about the same time. Now, Al is so used to me always talking he thinks nothing of it and goes on about his shopping. However, in that moment . . . I thought of all the columns I've written about Al. We both have a bit of a twisted sense of humor and often poke fun at the other’s eccentricities.

  • Stacey shares events, glee & gloom
    Monday, August 5, 2019 4:00 AM
    Summer's not over yet and there's no shortage of fun and exciting things to do in and around Montgomery County this time of year. The weather is perfect for fish fry's, festivals and outdoor family fun. Last week was Montgomery County's National Night Out. To see so many children and families playing games and having good, safe fun was such a wonderful sight. There is no greater joy for me than to see children laughing and playing. To all of those who participated, donated and volunteered to make this an extra special night in our community, THANK YOU!
    Upcoming Events . . .
    We've had so many fun, family friendly events this summer and there's still more to come!

    A Little Good News. . .
    I wrote last week that I was going to add a “Glee and Gloom” to my column. With what seems to be so much sadness in the news lately I thought it would be a nice reminder of the good things that happen in our lives and community as well. I'm often reminded of Singer-songwriter, Anne Murray's 1983, “A Little Good News.” It was one of my favorite songs when I was younger and I find myself thinking of it often. The gist of the song is simple. . . with all the tragic headlines and bad stuff going on in the world, we could all use a little good news today. We have so many wonderful and heartwarming stories that happen right here in Montgomery County. Students, citizens, clubs, businesses, non-profits and organizations doing remarkable things right here in our community.

  • Stacey honors special folks, Notable Nineties
    Monday, July 8, 2019 4:00 AM
    “Those who don't know history are doomed to repeat it.”
    Edmond Burke
    It is important to know our history and learn from the trials and errors, fumbles and accomplishments and of those who have come before us.
    Notable Nineties is a list of folks from all over Montgomery County who have paved the way with 90 years of insight, wisdom and experience to share with the younger generations. They have seen America at its best and its worst.
    Some were born into the Great Depression. All have lived through some of the roughest times in our history such as WW II., Korea and Vietnam. They were just children during some of the most horrific events like the Hindenburg explosion and the disappearance of Amelia Earhart. They had front row seats during some of the greatest times in history, witnessing amazing scientific achievements like the moon landing and remarkable breakthroughs in medical science like the polio vaccination in 1955! Some were young teens when the first modern computer was invented in 1945. It’s hard to imagine the width and breadth of the advancements this group witnessed in technology!

    A Not So Beautiful mind
    Out of Order, Stacey's Ramblings or still one of my favorites, Baschwit Crazy . . . These were just a few of the names thrown around when trying to decide a title for my column.
    Obviously, I ultimately settled on Wits End. I wanted something reflective of my personality and the craziness of my life. Although, any one of them would easily apply. My mind seems to be going 100 MPH at any given time. My thoughts are most definitely out of order, my mouth can ramble on once you get me talking and my personality can most certainly be described as crazy!
    However, it's my brain working at 1 a.m. that keeps me at my wits end! 
    While most are fast asleep, resting their mind and bodies for the upcoming day ahead . . . I find myself thinking of silly things like, “How do we know what a dinosaur sounds like?” “Is the S or the C silent in the word Scent?” Isn't it funny how we say things like, “our nose runs and feet smell?” “If a bunch of cats are piled up, is it still called a dog pile?”
