Civilian jobs hold no interest

Dear Annie: I am a 23-year-old man. I served in the army and deployed to Afghanistan. I was medically discharged for PTSD about two years ago. I’m currently going to school to be a firefighter, but I’m afraid I’ve picked this field not because it interests me, but because I cannot go back into the […]

Not holding up his end

Dear Annie: Six years ago, I divorced my alcoholic, workaholic husband and became a single parent. My ex has regular visitation, but I am the one who handles all the sick days, school conferences, injuries, etc. He never bothers. Shortly after the divorce, I had to take a job at a much lower salary. There […]

The hand I hold will never hold me down

Two years ago Sunday, I married my best friend. And I’m thrilled to report that marriage hasn’t changed that. Known as The Cutest Man In The World (TCMITW) to those of you who’ve followed this thread for the last decade or so, Joe is proof positive that soulmates really do exist. I know I’ve found […]

When nature calls, you can’t put it on hold

DebraDeAngeloW The best part of last week’s story about my adventures in radio commercials is the part I didn’t tell: getting there. But first, some context. I have the bladder of a hamster. And my urgency ratio is directly linked to my stress level. The higher the stress, the greater the urgency. If I’m anxious […]

Trip to Gettysburg not my usual type of vacation

Enterprise columnist Whenever I have pictured myself as a soldier, something IÕve done many times over the years, especially during the Vietnam era, IÕve imagined myself feeling totally out of place in war. I imagine myself going along with whatever IÕm supposed to do, because IÕm basically obedient and a conformist, but keeping my thoughts […]

Back-to-school lunches to ease the disappointment

It’s time for kids to head back to school and parents to a more regular routine. While some of us are always super-glad for fall, others are deeply saddened by the end of summer vacation. That sadness reaches a peak at lunchtime, when, instead of lobster rolls, ice cream and beer of some sort, we […]

Bob Dunning: We’re saving water, but should we drink it?

When I left town with my family for a brief vacation to the wilds of western Canada earlier this month, I thought everything was under control. We’d just had an oil change on our aging Honda Odyssey, bills had been paid as much as possible, arrangements had been made for the newspaper and the mail […]

Davisite makes it to the X-Alps raft, at last!

“This moment has been eight years and five X-Alps races in the making,” said Honza Rejmanek of Davis, as he neared the victory raft in the Mediterranean Sea near Monaco.

It was the end of two long weeks of paragliding and hiking 1,068 kilometers (663 miles) across the Alps from Salzburg, Austria, to the raft — the fifth time that Rejmanek has competed in the X-Alps race sponsored by RedBull.

He finished third in 2011 but did not make it to the raft.

An international paraglider pilot and an atmospheric scientist by day, Rejmanek stays in shape and trains constantly for the race, both to hone flying skills and improve walking skills …
