Courthouse war: Part two

Construction of the new Wayne County Courthouse began quickly. By the end of 1876, the foundation was complete and $30,000 had been spent. At this point, opposition to the new courthouse threatened the project. Concerns were raised about the need for bond issues, increased taxes and future costs, and rumor added fuel to the fire.

Throwing caution to the wind

The thing I can say best in Spanish is “Mi Espanol es muy mal,” which means, “My Spanish is very bad.” I have practiced saying it so many times that I pronounce it perfectly and the Mexicans in Oaxaca, where my sister, Janet, and I recently spent much of this past February and March, didn’t believe me.

Aging in rural America is tough in any case, but there are extra challenges for LGBTQ seniors.

Being out, old and rural

I grew up listening to stories about my colorful family: about Uncle Christian Wilhelm who went to Russia with Napoleon, great-great-great grandpa who fought in the American Civil War, my aunt Norma who made tiny toys and danced under the moon.

Taking on the next phase

It’s an old story about being old.

Suddenly, there’s all this extra time to fill. Your body is weird and doesn’t work the way it used to. It’s too easy to watch TV or surf online and wait for something to happen.
