  • Bedbugs not the end of the world

    Bedbug infestations are a growing problem, and their continuous resurgence has been a hot news topic of late.

    “They are actually just now getting into our area really bad,” said Jerry Hicks, who operates Jerry Exterminating in Harriman.

    The sight of one of those brown, apple-seed-sized bugs may make your skin crawl, but small infestations don’t mean the end of the world.

    It certainly doesn’t mean a residence is unclean.

    Bedbug infestations can happen in just about any type of location.

  • LOOSELEAF LAUREATE: Funny what you see on a long, dark highway

    I’ve been on the road a bit lately — trips that involve night driving on miles of two-lane highways. I couldn’t help but notice the light glowing from the windows of houses scattered along the way.

    And in noticing, landscape features faded and years slipped away.

    I was a kid again, riding in a car down U.S. 41 to see my father’s people.
