Common Ground

Quite illustrative of our common ground theme for this anniversary edition of The Tomahawk, an old tree weathered by mountain winds and storms stands adjacent to a fresh, young sapling. The old tree seems to be bending down, imparting wisdom of the ages to its young counterpart. The tender white pine leans in, eagerly drinking in every word from the experienced old man. Perhaps we, “home growns” and “transplants,” could take a valuable lesson from nature … natives willing to share knowledge with new neighbors and newcomers anxious to benefit from the tests of time and experience … each drawing strength from the nurturing mountain springs, earth and air.
