Hillary Clinton to America: "I'm the chick, and don't you forget it. " Nice. I was hoping, really hoping, that we might make it all the way to 2008 - the actual year of the election - before this whole presidential trampoline act broke down into strictly a male-female thingie. Heaven knows I wasn't within 10 miles of a TV set for the most recent debate, but by the sounds of it, the six male candidates spent appreciable time screaming at the female candidate. You didn't know whether she was a presidential candidate or a bank teller.

shappell@herald-mail.com HALFWAY - Looking at David Lowry's collection of antique tractors was akin to looking at a fish out of water as his gray 1940 Ford shined in the mall lighting with a Hot Topic store and all of its teen-rock apparel in the background. The Washington County Antique Tractor Club is holding its 6th Annual Spring Show at Valley Mall this week. The items, compiled by the club's 92-family membership and including antique tractors, garden/lawn tractors and farm tools, are on display throughout the mall, said President David Lowry.

What do you think of when you hear the phrase “urban agriculture?” It certainly depends on your perspective and where you live. Yet, I was surprised the other day during interviews we were conducting to fill an educator position that will focus on urban agriculture. I should say I wasn't surprised by the subject or even some of the candidates' perceptions. I've had the privilege to travel a fair bit in my career, including several trips abroad. I have long been impressed with the European model of growth and their collective respect for agriculture.

I like to think that my vast surplus of brain energy simply overwhelms lesser machines. That's why every electronic or mechanical device I touch breaks. This is the only explanation that fits. My prodigious brain waves crowd out computer code, operating signals and electronic impulses emanating from a Dr. Suess array of widgets, blidgets, capacitors, dabnapators, transistors and wanflistors, What chance does, say, the remote handset of a telephone have of receiving messages from its base station when the room is jammed by my thunderous thoughts?
