    As Israel’s assault on the Gaza Strip rages on, ceasefires come and go.

    It might come as a shock to those of you who have not watched many of those movies that John Wayne is not in all of them.

  • Absence makes the heart grow fonder

    FREDERICK — When last seen near a football field, ex-Frederick star Dalton Hall was leading the Warriors to the state 3A semifinals and earning all-conference recognition.

    That was almost three years ago.

    Since then, he’s signed a letter of intent, seen that plan go up in smoke because of a change in coaches, a change of schools (Hall is at Western State College of Colorado) and a resultant loss of a year of eligibility and neck surgery that kept him out of spring practice.
