  • Chester Clark III: A magnificent disappointment

    Could this really be happening?

  • Chester V. Clark IIIThe miracle of life

    \With spring in the air and the dogwoods starting to bud, my reflections turn again to the miracle that we call life. Call me simple, easily impressed or perennially forgetful; but isn’t it amazing that dormant plants and trees can come to life again after the bitter cold of winter?
