Opinion

CENTER STAGE: Holiday events on tap Saturday

Christmas is right around the corner. Earlier this week, while driving to the office, I noticed only a few houses along my way with beautiful colored lights on them. Which begs the question, why are so few people decorating this year?

RANDOM THOUGHTS: Turkey day, then tree decisions

The holiday season is in full swing, still with more emphasis on Christmas than Thanksgiving, even though turkey day is tomorrow.

CENTER STAGE: Streaming music can be really convenient

I love listening to music, be it one of today’s “hot new” songs, or a classic from yesteryear. While I’ll admit the bulk of my music collection (both physical and digital) is country, bluegrass and classic rock, I’ve got nothing against classical, folk, blues, and even the occasional pop song. Last week my brother purchased a subscription for me to the popular streaming music service Spotify.
