Housefire in Manning

Posted by | February 12, 2019 11:00 am

Manning firefighters responded to a housefire on Richburg Street at 2:48 on Monday. Homeowners Quincy Jackson and Sarah Baker had discovered a fire in a room used primarily for storage. A faulty power strip, which was plugged into the wall, sparked and caused a nearby laundry pile to ignite.

“When we got there, the room was fully involved,” said Manning Fire Chief Mitch McElveen.

The fire did not spread to other rooms, according to McElveen, but there was minor smoke damage to the kitchen area.

Fortunately, the stored items in the room were the only items lost. All members of … Read the rest

Classified information

Posted by | February 11, 2019 6:00 pm

I was watching a movie, and one of the characters claimed he was going to say something that was classified information. Giving out this information could end his military career. Well, it was just a movie. Nobody lost their career, and everything worked out in the end.

It does bring up the question of secret information that might be classified in the interest of national security. What happens when some of this information gets out? Does some Russian or Chinese agent learn something that could put lives in jeopardy, or does nothing happen?

There is so much information today it … Read the rest

An early spring…or not?

Posted by | February 10, 2019 6:00 pm

Well, folks, February 2 has come and gone, and Punxsutawny Phil, the world-famous groundhog, has seen his shadow. Now we can get ready for an early spring, right?

Maybe.

Every February, thousands of people make the trek to Gobbler’s Knob in Punxsutawny, Pennsylvania, for the celebration to watch Phil come out of his den to predict the future. If he sees his shadow, there will be six more weeks of winter. However, if he doesn’t see his shadow, it will be an early spring.

The problem? Phil is wrong more often than right. His 39 percent accuracy rate is less … Read the rest
