I finally have to admit it, things are tight all over. That's a tough thing to admit when you are a big & tall - OK just big - guy like me. Everywhere you look, we are trying to cut corners. Take an inch here, an ounce there and all of sudden nothing is the same. Half gallon of ice cream? Now just 56.8 ounces. That would be Turkey Hill minus 7.2 in Las Vegas. I lost weight in the offseason, but it's still tough for me to fit my svelte size 54 frame in those sleek 42-inch waisted coaching shorts.

After months of tending to myriad off-the-field details, Derek Munson is happy to finally have his team preparing for a football game. Undoubtedly, the seemingly endless meetings with administrators, parents, boosters and the like all are important to launching a new football program. But Munson is a coach. Given the choice, he'd much rather be on a practice field than in a conference room. “It is nice to really focus on football and prepare for that first game,” said Munson, the first-year head coach of the first-year program at the new Spring Mills High School.

Contractors are closer to completing an Interstate 81-widening project in Berkeley County, but they first must repair areas where the highway's original concrete pavement has failed beneath the asphalt. “The original concrete pavement that was placed years ago - that is under the blacktop - will be cut out, the area will be stabilized and refilled with concrete prior to placement of the new asphalt,” Troy White, area engineer for the West Virginia Division of Highways, said in an email Tuesday.

Golden column should be reprinted To the editor: My fervent hope is that the column that appeared June 18 by Bryan Golden has been noticed for its timeliness by readers. The subject - “Will this be America's last birthday?” - could have been written appropriately on any week in June, but it was so in keeping with present day. Did the reader know why? Without one reference to current events or the Obama administration, it cleverly discloses how we are allowing a social democracy to take over America.
