By Chris Frost Tri County Sentry   Oxnard-- It's an atypical Friday night for me, as I lost a dear friend and mentor in my life, thanks to Covid-19. I won't beat you up about China, but I will ask you to avoid purchasing items made in China.   Without belaboring the issue, I just want to take a minute to say thank you to my pal Darian, The Dude, who spent many nights in the office with me, teaching me the ins and outs of the inverted news triangle in a place where not many people appreciated the efforts that I put into the stories I...

Where you when the WTC fell?
9/16/2021 6:10:33 PM

By Chris Frost Tri County Sentry So, where were you the day the World Trade Center fell? It had a little different effect on me than most others. On September 11, 2001, I lived in Piscataway, New Jersey, and the J-Train and I had a house full of teenagers, dogs, and cats.   The kids were in school, the J-Train and I were at work, and we were all just living our lives when the day started.    When the first tower was hit, I was working in the kitchen at a restaurant in Tinton Falls, New Jersey, and at the time, I was inventorying produce, so I could...

Notes to self
9/16/2021 12:27:40 PM

Oxnard-- Do you ever have one of those weekends when you know you won't succeed, but you can learn some things along the way?   Well, I can, and I did the last weekend. It started at 5:30 a.m. the other day when the alarm went off, and the J-Train needed to get up for work. Incidentally, I didn't need to get up, and I just finished 24 hours of writing a couple of hours earlier. As I laid there taking a second to gather myself, the J-Train decided that the best way to get me to hit the snooze button was to give me a back-handed nut shot, laugh a lot, and say sorry while...
