Caught My Eye…

I ain’t as good as I once was,
My how the years have flown,
But there was a time,
Back in my prime,
When I could really hold my own
– As Good As I Once Was (Scott Emerick /Toby Keith)

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!
