From early 1988 until just a few years ago, I saved every S-R section to which I had contributed. Chronicle sections, too. I wanted a record of my work. Then, sometime in the last few weeks, it came to me. Newsprint makes excellent packing material.
If Gonzaga University still played football would young catechism students be confused about the origins of the “Hail Mary” pass?
Our backyard apple tree is messing with my mind.
I secured a brief interview with Inny, our local aquatic leviathan. You won’t believe what she had to say.
