The Couch Potato: Some quick hits through the summer TV season
The “dog” (fans of the blog will get that joke) days of summer are upon us, so you know what that means. It’s time for “Quick Hits!”
Gary Church: There will be crying at my funeral — but it’s not what you think
I was one of the 7,000 people who attended the River City Brass concert on July 3 at Westminster College. One of the songs that I especially liked was "Shenandoah," which was beautifully sung by the Rev. Nathan Louden.
Lisa Madras: Somewhere between ‘showing up’ and ‘giving up,’ there is hope
What do you do when you feel like giving up? I've been writing for a long time. Longer even than my time with this newspaper, but I do have to say that this has been my favorite writing stint of all time, and I'm going to miss it.
Josh Drespling: Baby talk? Don’t even goo-goo-ga-ga go there!
Baby, baby, baby, oooh. Like baby, baby, baby, NO! No, I'm not singing a Justin Beiber song. I have just been bombarded with babies. At every turn, there is a woman with child or a glowing new father.
Gary Church: Want me to be happy? Well, paper towels aren’t exactly a quicker picker upper
I've always had a problem with accepting change. So when a company changes something about its product, it drives me nuts. My latest rampage is the select-a-size paper towels. I hate them.
Tim Kolodziej: What will your house look like?

The Couch Potato: It’s united our states, but soccer is still boring
The old Couch Potato is a huge sports fan, but as I've gotten older, I have been watching less and less on television.
Whew! That was a close shave for the poor little bird!
The first thing I do every morning, after performing some bodily functions, is shave. Last week during my shaving time, I heard the sound of pots and pans tumbling to the floor.
Lisa Madras: ‘Somewhere’ there’s a place for me — sorry it’s just not here
Where else would you like to live? Why? I'm sure that my answer to this question is going to tick off a lot of people: I want to live somewhere else. I don't know where yet, but somewhere else.
Josh Drespling: Now here’s a dry idea — no rain, my gain
Rain, rain, go away. Come again some other day. Preferably someday when I’m stuck at work and have no need or desire to go outside. A day when I am shackled to my desk, my computer, and office equipment.
