From the Publisher
This book collects columns that appeared in The News-Herald and The Derrick from 2001 through 2003. The columns that the author most enjoyed writing and the ones that many readers responded to are collected here, including several series brought together for the first time. Politics, education, work, and the people who make Venango County special are all here, along with favorite holidays and wild bat attacks. Once again, readers can enjoy a view of the world through a small town lens.
