Telling Tales

On Fingerprints
It’s no wonder I’m tired. After the kids and husband have gone to bed, I can get so much more done around the house. Last night, as everyone lay peacefully sleeping, I was scrubbing fingerprints from switch plates and mirrors for what seemed like the 800th time that week. At one point during my midnight cleaning spree, I wondered how much of my life will be spent washing fingerprints from door facings or scrubbing grass stains out of baseball pants or using placemats to cover finger paint that stained the dining room table.

Growing Lebanon Airport offers home to 105 planes   

Special to The Wilson Post

After taking his first airplane ride at age 5, Myron Lasater walked away with a fear of flying.

The notion is near laughable today to anyone who knows the 22-year veteran pilot and vice president of RediAir, the company that manages Lebanon Municipal Airport. Nobody is a bigger booster of flying through the friendly skies of the wild blue yonder.

Jacobsohn’s work is made from ceramics and other materials, and features a variety of subject matter. Since 1996, Jacobsohn has devoted her full-time to making art, living and working with her husband, an artist and woodcarver, in the mountains between Sparta and Monterey. When she moved there, she took her horse with her, and has been inspired by horse imagery ever since.



Password with Bailiwick and One Joke



I expect this is “out of your bailiwick,” so to speak, but it’s about words so I thought I’d see if you’d look into this. I’m wondering about the history of the term password. I know passwords have been around a long time, but we need them constantly now in “The Electronic Age.” Thank you,
