Bits and Pieces for Nov. 30|
A busy week took a mortal toll on Bits & Pieces.
In fact, it was decided Monday evening that other commitments would consume the time to find topics and write about them properly to be presented today.
But don’t get me wrong, it was an interesting and busy week.
One of those elements was attending an Antigo school board meeting.
For the first time in a number of years, I had the opportunity to report on a session Tuesday evening, and it was really something.
Board President Mike Boldig gaveled the event open at 7 p.m. sharp, and I was long gone before he used the gavel again just before midnight — with or without that wooden hammer.
It reminds me of the 1980s when the school board meetings almost demanded combat pay or at last a sleeping bag for a reporter.
The late Ray Blaskey, a respected high school mathematics teacher and sports figure, was a member of the school board in the 1980s. He told us that anything that transpired at one of those meetings after 11 p.m. wasn’t worth happening.
We agreed then, and now.
But I said there would be no Bits & Pieces, and I cannot get carried away like that again.
I was just explaining how at least some of the Bits writing time was gobbled up this week.
I wouldn’t miss next Saturday’s column for anything.
