Crunch those leaves

Becky's story today reminds readers of what has endured in the Inland Northwest over the last several decades: marching bands as football teams rally for a field goal; men setting out in early morning to hunt for the prized deer and quiet lakes serving as oases for visitors' deep thoughts.  Our traditions carry us through time as the economy challenges, children grow and leave, the e-world simultaneously connects and separates us from each other.

 Autumn is a good time to pause and grab a snapshot for the future; those changing leaves with blinding colors call us to slow down and savor what is good, a happiness boost for sure.

 What do you love best about the fall season?
