Posted on December 7, 2017 |
By Jessie Raymond



Last weekend I decided to refinish our old, banged-up coffee table.

Mark objected.

“You’re not going to do a great job,” he said. This was true. He’s seen me tackle all kinds of projects, only to lose interest in the process and, in the end, fudge them.

“I don’t have to do a great job,” I said. “I just have to make it better than it was.” I reminded him of an old saying: “Don’t let perfect be the enemy of good.”

Letter to the Editor: Hand-written Christmas cards bring lasting cheer

Posted on December 7, 2017 |
By Miriam Hardy



Every year even before Halloween my mail box on my front porch begins to be stuffed with ads for things I don’t need or want. There are catalogues for things I’ve never needed and companies I’ve never heard of. After sorting out the few bills I receive, the rest goes into the recycling bin. The poor postal courier’s bag gets heavier and heavier.
