There has been a lot of handshakes, donations, dedicated songs and even a dedicated tree. More thanks seems almost gratuitous. […]

SagaStaff Perspective – Staff Regatta and the Season So Far

“Bridge, he said ‘switch canoes.’ He didn’t say we had to get in the water to do it.” Lindsay’s reasoning came too late – I was already in the lake and looking up at my two canoe-mates. “Geez.
