Regretting those six tattoos?

I was cynically amused by your feature on tattoos in Tuesday’s Insider. Glad for you that you didn’t interveiw me. First off, I got six tattoos. Started when I was 15 years old (I’m 51 now) and I regret every one of them.

Any CHS class of '63 kids out there?

If so, we've got a project for you: Hold a reunion, will you?
We just heard from Mary-Jean Fellows, who saw our story on the class of '67 reunion. "I have never heard of a reunion for the class of 1963!" she wrote. "Maybe they haven't ever had one. Maybe you could find out for me?"
For you, Mary-Jean, there's no question we wouldn't ask.
So whaddya say, readers? Shall we hunt down the class of 1963 and throw them a reunion, or do you want to have Mary-Jean's unhappy face on your conscience??

We never forget our interview subjects

Remember Don Eckhardt? A few months ago, we forgot to credit him for a photo of Chance Anderson that we printed in the Insider. We were going to run a correction, but when we discovered that he had a PhD in geophysics and worked for NASA, we decided to interview him instead.
Last week, Don got in touch with us about a statue recently installed at the Elkins Public Library in Canterbury.
