Just light my food on fire and call it done

By Vinton Today · July 26th, 2018
I grew up at a time, when kids in other countries were starving. This was always the reason why I was never allowed to waste food. At least that was the story, and my dad was sticking to it! He was also a firm believer in “waste not, want not”. It wasn't until after we had been married a while and we had gone out on a date that I said to Dean, “This tastes awful!” He looked at me and said, “You don't have to eat it.

Letter to the Editor: Political Rhetoric and Civility

By Vinton Today · July 10th, 2018

Sometimes a great friend knows just what you need to hear. And sometimes, a great friend can say it without using words, as this story from Fenway Park demonstrates. Despite his 3-0 record so far, the 2018 baseball season has been anything but a breeze for Boston Red Sox pitcher Eduardo Rodriquez.

Have you ever eaten at The 4th St. Diner, located behind the green door at 202 E. 4th Street? Come and bring your family, if they aren't in school! EVERYONE is welcome!
