Welcome to the big show to end the week “Caught My Eye” (CME)!

If you are a first-time visitor, CME is posted right here every Friday morning. This is when I take a look at some of the stories I did not have time to write about during the week. I often throw in a touch of sarcasm to make you smile – or to irritate you just a little – maybe both.

Topics that I am providing commentary about today include my observations from Tuesday’s Primary Election, Cascade County Sheriff Bob Edwards, August Recess, Plagiarism, and One More Thing!
