Dec. 4, 2012 — I found my first gray hair at the young age of 26, which was not surprising because my dear old dad found his at 24. He’s now 61 and has a full head of snowy white wavy hair (in a pony tail no less). Since having children eight years ago, my pesky whites are taking over my head at an alarming rate.
As a woman, I have the option of dyeing my hair (and spending about $100) every couple months in an attempt to cover the pale strands. Or, I can choose to let my new gray hairs slowy mingle with my dark brown waves (and smile politely when friends comment on how gray I’m getting).
Dec. 4, 2012 — Kudos is what I’d like to give freely to the residents who have contributed to making their weekly newspapers sparkle with community pride.
Photos, emails and calls with information, a whisper here and a holler there, it all adds up to the newspapers that receive constant comments and compliments from those who visit here from the big cities.
What makes your hometown weekly so special?
From the comments, it’s actually what we don’t have.
It’s the lack of canned news from the wire, the state and national news feeds; the stuff you watch on television every day.
