Thomas L. Bowen

Thomas L. Bowen, M. D., 72, formerly of Oskaloosa, died Saturday, Aug. 20, 2011, at his home in Solon, surrounded by his family.
Tom was born July 4, 1939, to Mildred and Kenneth Bowen of Oskaloosa.  He married Judy M. Slay on July 29, 1961, at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Oskaloosa.  Tom and Judy celebrated their 50th anniversary with family in Hannibal, Mo., in July of this year.

Walkin'

As I write this I’m sitting at a picnic table on the corner of Main and Market Street in St. Genevieve, Mo.
Sabra and I are on our eighth annual two-week bicycle trip. Last year we went to Germany, and prior to that Wisconsin, Minnesota and Missouri.
This year’s trip started in Alton, Ill. I chose it because it is midway between two places we wanted to visit: St. Louis and Pere Marquette State Park.

Food For Thought

My relationship with the telephone began when I was in second grade. My mother was expecting my youngest sister and Dad thought it a good idea for me and my other two sisters to be able to reach him on the phone – just in case “something” happened to Mother and she couldn’t get to the phone. Nearly everybody in Knoxville had four-party lines at that time. Long before the days of the rotary dial, we simply picked up the handset and, when the operator said, “Number please,” we told her the number we wanted.

Guest Column

Ten years ago this week, a newspaper veteran took a chance. And a relative newcomer in the industry began what’s been a dream gig.
My business partner and I celebrate 10 years of business this week. It’s been a helluva ride– with no doubt more peaks and valleys to come.
