Men's Basketball: Lindsey Wilson, 68. Bluefield, 57

By Dan White
News from Lindsey Wilson College

BLUEFIELD, VA - After falling behind 17-8, Lindsey Wilson College went on a 20-0 run and never let Bluefield (VA) back in the game, winning 68-57 on Sunday at Dome Gymnasium.

Kalen Kimberland was on a mission for the Blue Raiders, scoring a team-high 20 points, while Milton Watts controlled the paint for 11 points, eight rebounds and six blocks.

Bluefield got a game-high 23 points and 11 rebounds from Bryon Carpenter, but was unable to make a comeback behind just 30.8 percent shooting from the field. That mark included a 3-of-16 showing from behind the arc.

The Blue Raiders, on the other hand, had a good day from the field, hitting 45.9 percent of their shots while also controlling the backboards 44-39. - Dan White

Poetry by Robert Stone - Nature loves the core - a sonnet

Nature loves the core
- a sonnet reflecting on "The Piano Lesson" by August Wilson
Idyllic idle idols instigate
intense temptations to ignore conceit
in claiming prized and prizing claimed debate
on old to keep or future needs to meet.

Repeated stories stamping times now past
will satisfy collectors loving words
but tangibles deep scarred are ties that last
for eagle-like who eye the groundling birds.

Expected futures disappoint with loss
the gamblers trusting patterns unrevised
for nature loves the core but gets across
wry changes leaving plodding lives surprised.

No value is above the heart's desire
for worthiness in things we will acquire.

- Robert Stone, 27 January 2013

Happy Tail: Kid's Best Friend

A first dog is an important moment in a kid's life. Everyone who had a dog remembers it. The author does. She remembers Trigger, a yellow dog who was bedside at her birth and cribside from then on until she outgrew the crib. With her pet rabbit, Pinky in a doll carriage, she'd go to the store for milk and bread for her mother, while Trigger walked with them, keeping them safe. Having pets was part of growing up learning life lessons. Pets provide moments when children learn responsibility. Click on headline for complete column with photo(s)
The next earlier Happy Tail: Happy Tail: Dolly - a new life for an old dog

By Peg Schaeffer
Sugarfoot Farm Rescue

I received a phone call from Casi Absher one Saturday asking me what kind of dogs I had for adoption. It was her daughter's birthday and Briley wanted a dog for her birthday. I described some of the dogs I had that would be good for a little girl and they came to visit.

Briley watched all of the dogs at play and picked out a male Cocker Spaniel named Trixie. We filled out the paperwork and Briley handed me the money she had received for her birthday and took Trixie home. Casi contacted me the next day to say how good Trixie was and that Briley had changed his name to Oscar.

Technology Link: The Happiness Machine

If you are a Slate regular reader, you saw this a few days. We just came across it. It's a story about changes in our lives - for the better - the internet is making possible, and, in particular, how Google constantly searches to improve the lives of its already pampered employees. Click to: Slate: The Happiness Machine. How Google became such a great place to work. By Farhad Manjoo

Evidence of similar efforts to improve the lives of workers right here in the CM seven county area is evident, as more and more workplaces let workers stay at home when road conditions are life threatening. A parallel benefit is seen in the schools. It won't be long until snow days only mean a day of classes on internet tablets at home, with no loss of revenues for the advanced school systems. Won't that be great? - EW

Because You Save Clicks, Clicks Count on CM

SITE NEWS. Philosophy of CM: Clicking on CM. Another place where "Less is More" pays off, with more information a click away than others. It's a philosophy that's paying off as more people than ever now know. Growth in clicks has been huge since we migrated to a more powerful server. We're hoping that growth continues as those who know how to Click for More tell others, in 2013, the year of the tablet, phablet and cell phone, a sea change in communications, as the world rushes to a new way of reading.

At CM, our goal is to make every Click Count. It's not a unique notion, but it's the opposite policy of many sites.

This Sunday could we suggest a few extra minutes curled up with your Kindle, Samsung Notepad II telephone, iPad, Surface, laptop, or other home computer - and you can even watch the Super Bowl streaming online with most of these - taking a few extra minutes to Click Around a few times to see what all is in our archives. We haven't kept count, but best guesstimate is that there are now over 100,000 entries on the cite.

Carol Perkins: Cold weather has come

Times were cold, but they were good, in the drafty, wood stove headed homes of half a century ago. It was an honor to get the wood, when you were tiny enough that a stick at a time was all you could carry, but for one of her older uncles, he heard it so much he thought it was his name (and a dreaded one) - 'Go get the wood.' A memory of growing up in Metcalfe County by Carol Perkins
The next earlier Carol Perkins column: Willie. Just Willie

By Carol Perkins

Cold weather has come. We have grown accustomed to wearing light jackets and hoodies instead of winter coats, scarves, and gloves, so when the temperature dipped into the twenties, we weren't ready for it. At least I wasn't. My winter coat was buried in the back of the coat closet, and I couldn't find a matching set of gloves if I tried. It has been several winters since I have used either.

Dan Sickles: 'Roguish Rapscallion'

Let's see now. How to begin describing Dan Sickles?

Dan Sickles died of a cerebral hemorrhage May 3, 1914.

After a life of one scandal after another, he was appointed head of the New York State Monument Commission which he served for 26 years. In 1912 the books were discovered to be out of balance by some $28,000. The state attorney general Thomas Carmody took action against the entire commission and ordered the arrest of its ninety-three-year-old chairman.

Predicament in Tulsa

I have lived with the "heartache of psoriasis" most of my adult life. It's the primary reason no one remembers seeing me in a swimming suit.

When I was a young business man, I drove to Tulsa every Saturday morning for a treatment with Dr. Shackelford, a skin-disorder specialist. On one Saturday morning it was snowing heavily when I started home.
