from the Trojans. Homer bounced back Thursday to take a non-league doubleheader from Delton-Kellogg, then dropped a tough 2-1 decision Saturday night on the road to Jackson.

Coming home from my daughter’s bedside at C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital at the University of Michigan for an all too brief 24-hour break, I felt like some kind of groundhog that had burrowed up from its underground existence only to be blinded by the sun. I spent time with my son who, despite being given great care by my nephew’s family and helpful classmates’ parents, was feeling neglected by his own. I watched his track invitational, took him to a Young Marines encampment in Battle Creek, and yelled at him about leaving dirty socks in the
dining room. Just like always.

The Travel Channel has a new show on called “Breaking Borders.” The premise is that a chef and a journalist travel to areas of the world experiencing strife and discord and invite people from each side of the disagreement to a common meal to be shared. Meals are chosen to be representative of each party’s culture. So far, they have traveled to Rwanda, Northern Ireland, Egypt, Sarajevo, Kashmir, the US-Mexican border and the West Bank of Palestine.
