When I found out that the world’s longest Hot Wheels track is being built for a special race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway this week, it took me back in time to those oh-so-long-ago days when I was a kid who couldn’t get enough of those shiny, snazzy toy cars.
February was our month, I recall thinking when I was a little girl. My dad and I were both born in February. Winter always reminds me of him. Cork-studded boots, flannel shirts, wool pants, the smell of pine needles and sawdust, that’s my dad – a logger.

I just wrapped up coverage of the League of Women Voters Douglas County commissioner candidate forum. It took forever.
Ten candidates vying for five seats, sharing their views on queries from the public. That’s a lot of information to process, which makes me wonder:

Welfare check. The first thought that pops into your mind when you hear those two words defines from which side of the tracks you hail.
In the Echo Press office, we listen to the police scanner to stay informed on what’s happening in the area. One of the services law enforcement provides is a welfare check, a visit to a residence to inquire on a person’s well-being.
Welfare check means something different to me.
Work is currently under way on the Echo Press’ fifth edition of The Churches of Douglas County. We typically come out with an updated version of this publication every three years, and I have been fortunate enough to work on all five of them.
I love working on this piece because churches intrigue me – especially historic ones, and Douglas County is blessed with many of these treasures.
I’m never quite sure how many of my Christmas memories from childhood are actually true and how many come from my imagination, although, I do have enough brothers and sisters to help keep me from straying off target too far.
