Mark’s Musings – June 21, 2017

This could be your lucky day. Well, not in the sense that you may think it is your lucky day. You may define that as winning the lottery, being able to retire, getting a hole in one at the golf course or the Browns being declared the Super Bowl winner before the season even starts […]

Penguins, huh? Let’s look at it this way. If the Penguins can make it happen two years in a row, then why not the Cavs? Huh? Yes, why not. Monday night’s game has not happened as I write this so it could be over or the Cavs could be on the cusp of making history […]

Mark’s Musings – June 7, 2017

Can the Cavs come back from a 0-2 deficit? I don’t know but if anyone can do it, LeBron and the Cavs are the team to do it. Winning the next two at home will draw it even and send it back to Golden State for game number five. It is indeed a positive to […]

I turned it off. Thinking that the Cavs had game three well in hand, I thought, “Well, enough of that. They will sweep this series and get ready for Golden State.” Not to be, said the Celtics. Too many three point attempts and not enough points in the paint. But with lousy shooting for most […]

Mark’s Musings – May 17, 2017

It is a busy time in Coshocton County! May seems to be one of those months that goes by in a blur – and this would be particularly so if you have a graduating senior. Those years go by way too quickly from personal experience. We are truly fortunate to live in a community that […]
