Feather search turns up familiar friends

On April 3, I decided to walk around Enumclaw on my lunch break to look for a large feather to use as a prop in Stage Door Production’s “Man of La Mancha.” Ballpoint pens had not yet been invented during the period of the Spanish Inquisition. I searched under the trees between Mutual of Enumclaw and the Qwest building on Wells Street. There seem to be crows in these trees laughing at me whenever I walk around the corner to get into my car at the end of my work day.

Migraine headaches a huge pain

Migraine headaches can be extremely painful and debilitating – just ask anyone who has ever experienced one. Characterized by intense throbbing head pain, symptoms typically include pain on one side of the head accompanied by nausea and sensitivity activity, bright light or loud noises. Most migraines last from four to 12 hours, although they can be as short as a few hours or last a few days. Twenty-five percent of migraine sufferers experience aura, which cause visual disturbances such as wavy lines, dots or flashing lights and blind spots.
