Bob-n-Along: The price of gas and some random things I've been thinking about recently

By Bob Stealey | April 22, 2017 6:00 AM

By Bob Stealey | April 07, 2017 7:00 PM
It has been a while since we last took a trip down memory lane in downtown Clarksburg. A few months ago, I wrote about the stores and businesses that lined West Pike Street, but today, I'd like to list some of the places that were si...
 

Bob-n-Along: To know or not to know the future - that is the question!

By Bob Stealey | April 01, 2017 8:00 AM
Most likely if I were a TV weatherman, on this day I'd be calling for a 100 percent chance of a 30-day April ahead, and I'd have no fear of being contradicted. But what will April bring for us? The month of March was such an enig...
 

Bob-n-Along: 1977 was a really big year for some really big hits in the music world

By Bob Stealey | March 24, 2017 7:00 AM
This week I thought we'd go with another "Big Year in Pop/Rock Music" theme, and the year I've chosen this time is 1977. There were several big hits on the charts in 1977, so without further ado, let's get started....

Bob-n-Along: Thoughts on repealing and replacing Obamacare: the Affordable Care Act

By Bob Stealey | March 09, 2017 6:00 AM
There has been quite a lot of talk lately about Obamacare, or, as the creators of it have preferred to call it, the Affordable Care Act (ACT). From all the information I've been hearing about it, since it became an actual system of medica...

Today's Bob'n'Along deals, at least partially, with the return to the Clarksburg area of a fine tradition that was in hiatus for a couple of years.   Now I should state here at the outset that despite any gossip that...
 

Bob-n-Along: Lovin' this weather and waitin' for March Madness to begin!

By Bob Stealey | February 17, 2017 6:00 AM
Well, I need to ask you--to do it in a way that I'm not "jinxing" things--whether you have really enjoyed how Ol' Man Winter has been treating us here in the Clarksburg area so far? If you were to ask me, I'd have to say...
 

Bob-n-Along: My thoughts on the New England Patriots' win and Hillary' Clinton's loss

By Bob Stealey | February 10, 2017 6:00 AM
Often when I'm looking for the definition of a word or of an expression, the dictionary is the logical destination to find the answer. But not always. Let's take a definition for the word "momentum," for example. A splen...
 

Bob-n-Along: Are you ready for some football? I'm cheering for the Atlanta Falcons!

By Bob Stealey | February 03, 2017 6:00 AM
Many times in this column I attempt to keep my subject matter as up to date as I can, that is, I seek to bring current events into my text. In today's instance, with little doubt the most dominant activity that I could point to would...
