What happened to the middle ground?
You know, that place where people from different sides of an issue could come together to work something out. It doesn't seem to exist anymore, or if it does no one can find it.
My assigned table in the far corner of the dining room at High Hampton Inn & Country Club afforded an unobstructed view of the rear lawn arching its back down to Hampton Lake. Beyond the lake, Rock Mountain crowded the horizon.
It's unusual for our area to have above-average temperatures in mid-August, but that's exactly what we experienced last week. With higher temperatures comes grass that gets parched and homeowners and businesses who water more frequently.
