Lynden def. Black Hills in Distrcit 2A Playoff

With the Lynden Lions leading the Black Hills Wolves 17 to 14 at the end of the third quarter, I had to leave as my afternoon deadline for The Bellingham Herald was looming. As Lynden was playing well, I did not want to leave.

A Night with the Perseids

Just a quick post. As most of the world knows, the peak for the annual Perseid Meteor Shower was this morning August 12, 2016. Many said it was a fantastic show. It was nice, but I wouldn’t say it was one of the best I saw.
