I know this is the 21st century, but I'm getting a little concerned. I'm getting a weird feeling. I thought it was from the gooseliver and head cheese hoagie I had for lunch, but that passed. It's just the state of sports. I've been watching all the different events and noticed we aren't cheering for athletes anymore. We are cheering for billboards. First, it was auto racing with sponsorship tags all over the cars. It was followed by golfers and tennis players, all plastered with more company logos than a quarterly report.

It was my turn to write the column for this space, and as of Wednesday I still had no idea what I was going to write. But then something fell into my lap. Well, actually, it fell off the roof of my car. With temperatures expected to reach the high 90s, I was taking my two sons to my mother's house to spend a few hours in her swimming pool. I rounded them up and headed out the door, arms piled high with swimsuits, towels, pool toys, snacks, drinks and sunscreen. The boys got situated in their car seats, we double-checked to made sure we weren't forgetting anything and then we drove the 25 minutes to Grandmom's.

Examine the pig in the poke before election To the editor: I read the letter “Life is not fair,” regarding President Obama. I've got news for that writer. Life also should not be a stacked deck against you with only a small group of folks holding all the aces and writing all the rules played in life's game. When you're out there promoting austerity and talking about how nobody should get their taxes raised, think a little deeper than those typical GOP talking points.

Vickie Hrabal bought her Hagerstown home despite the outdated tile colors in its bathrooms. One featured lime green and olive green, and the other, Pepto-Bismol pink and white. What would be a deal breaker to many house hunters was an accepted challenge for the Oak Hill Interior Designs owner, who employed a decorative trick for each room that she uses for many clients on tight budgets: She got creative. Kitchens and bathrooms are typically the most expensive rooms to remodel, and Hrabal, like many of her clients, wasn't eager to spend a fortune ripping out the old tile and replacing it. Instead, she found wallpaper, valances and modern lighting for each bathroom that complemented the tile, and brought the rooms back to present day without the modern price tag. "It could cost as little as $500 for updated color, a new rug and shower curtain that gives the whole room a whole new look," she said.
