  • Good old days

    Sep 11, 2013

    8 years ago Sept. 14, 1888 A number of electric lights were turned on in different business houses about the city and one upon the street in front of city hall on Tuesday evening. Although everything was new and untried, the machinery worked fairly well and the lights lit up the surrounding gloom in great shape. Everyone was well pleased with the opening test and declared the business a “go.” After a temporary delay of several days caused by lack of funds, finish work on the college building has been resumed. This time that structure of whi...

    O, chocolate, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways—brownies, fudge, cake, cupcakes ... and there may be more!

The Melt in Your Mouth Chocolate contest judges are possibly the happiest of all. This year there were a number of delicious entries, and although there is not space to print all of them, the top three adult and top youth entries are included. In addition, t... Full story

    Check out 522 In “522 bad policy” (letters-Aug. l), Randy Suess writes that “hundreds of studies have proven genetically engineered foods to be safe” and “genetically engineered foods are the most rigorously tested food on the planet”. Genetically engineered (GE) foods have never been proven to be safe. The FDA requires no independent safety testing of GE foods before approving them. It merely accepts the studies provided by the biotech industry. When independent studies have been done, they have found GE food to be at least potentially... Full story

    Editor’s Note: The following column was originally published in 2008. Superman taught me to read. I’m not sure how old I was when I started reading, though I’m pretty sure it was before I went to high school. My cousin John had a stack of superhero comic books in his room, which drew me like a magnet whenever I was at his house. (Buried in the pile were a couple of magazines with large fold-out pictures of undressed women — these didn’t interest me in the slightest, another clue that I probably wasn’t in high school.) One day I was scrutinizin... Full story

    There is a story about a councilman in a Rust Belt city populated by those with Eastern European roots, who took to the floor decades ago to rage against ethnic jokes, decrying them as divisive. That’s hard to dispute. The problem is that he used examples, and each one would bring the house down. That would work him up even more, so he’d tell another one, to more peals of laughter. It’s not all that different from TV news these days. How many times have we watched as one bent-out-of-shape commentator after another has gone bananas over Miley...

    For activists intent on stopping all use of fossil fuel, train safety has become their cause du jour. After all, if you can block transport of fossil fuels, you can choke off their use. If they succeed, it’s not clear how we will heat and light our homes and schools, get to work, run businesses, keep the hospitals operating, stock grocery stores or harvest crops — but apparently, that’s an inconvenient question for another day. America’s rail system has undergone a transformation over the last 40 years. In 1970, the once grand railroa... Full story

Coliseum, a storied sports venue. Reportedly 90,000 fans crowded the venerable stadium. At least, there were that many at the start of the game. This was an important game for the Cougars. After a long drought, they are on the comeback. Everything is in place. Martin Stadium is improved, alcoholic beverages are available for those able to afford entry into... Full story

    Garth Meyer, Gazette Reporter|Sep 11, 2013

Playing at Pomeroy, Tekoa-Oakesdale went down 50-0. “It’s going to be a learning experience all year long,” said coach Ken Lindgren. “But the kids worked hard and never quit.” Lindgren leads the Nighthawks team back i...

  • Rosalia, St. John-Endicott to match up Friday night

    Sep 11, 2013

    One of the feature attractions for the second round of eight-man football this week will be the matchup between the revived Rosalia Spartan team and the St. John-Endicott Eagles. The Spartans, who booked a 50-22 win in their opener at Cove, Ore., will visit an SJE team which posted at 62-16 win over Wellpinit. Friday’s matchup will be a non-league round because Rosalia formed its team too late to get on the SE Eights league schedule. However, a win would help the Sparts stack the season percentage they need to get through the door of the f...
