DEAREST EXPLORE READER, James Robertson is a factory worker in Detroit. Each day he wakes up and begins a 21-mile journey to his job that pays $10.55/hour. He has no car, so James walks that distance each day. At the end of his 8 hour shift, he reverses course, and completes his 42 mile roundtrip…

Dearest EXPLORE Reader, When I was in college, I worked at the Rainbow Play Systems showroom on weekends in Lubbock. It was a pretty cushy job, I liked the owner (who was also named Ben), and the pay was pretty good. I could get a fair amount of studying done in between customers, and I…

Dearest EXPLORE Reader, I’ve wanted to write this particular Publisher’s piece for a while (as in years) but could never quite sculpt it in my mind in a way that made any sense for you, the reader. In fact, now that I think about it, I believe that I’ve been kicking the topic for this…

Dearest EXPLORE Reader, Plato once said, “He who commits injustice is ever made more wretched than he who suffers it.” The concept of “injustice” is a topic that I’ve spent a little time on lately.

Dearest EXPLORE Reader, There’s just something about an old boat. It can’t be a new boat, nor even a restored boat. It must be an OLD boat. It needs weathered upholstery, and faded controls. The interior carpet should be ripped and jagged, and there simply must be random tools in random locations, and there better…

Dearest EXPLORE Reader, You’ve all seen the movie: JAWS. And you all know the character: QUINT. You might know the character, but the name might not register with you. QUINT was the crusty fishermen that took the guys out to catch the shark on the ORCA. All of you just threw your head back and…

“From all that I saw, and everywhere I wandered, I learned that time cannot be spent, It only can be squandered.” – Roman Payne Welcome to the 10th Anniversary edition of EXPLORE. Wow, what a sentence to read. What began as little more than a silly and crazy idea, has consumed the past 10 years of…

Original Print Date: September 2011 These are my grandparents: Patsy Sue Craighead and Bedie Lee Craighead, Jr. They celebrated 65 years of marriage this past fall. Like many, many others, we (the grandkids) created ridiculous names for them that then stuck and followed them forever. For me, this is a picture of my Tutu and…
