I am a bit of a TV hound. If I am at home, it's on. Over the years I have enjoyed a few shows, but one show that my wife and I love just started its final season. as he tells his kids the story of how he met their mom. Call me sappy, but the beginning of the end of the show has me feeling a little nostalgic. I feel that way because my wife, Amanda, got me started watching the show not long after we met back in January of 2006. Since that time we have spent most Monday nights during TV season together watching the show. When we first met, the show was just in its first season and we enjoyed sitting down to watch it together as a break from our studies at WVU. I was in my last year of law school and she was finishing up her master's degree in reading education. As the show has progressed over the last 8 years a lot has changed in my life. It got me to thinking about someday telling the story of how I met Amanda to our kids. Our little girls, Allie and Lauren, are only four and 19 months respectively, so I thought the story could wait a few years, but seeing how Allie has already started playing and (GULP!) planning her wedding it might not be that far off. How is it even possible that a four-year-old would starting planning that young!
It seems like Oglebay Park has always been a part of my life. I came to Wheeling for the first time in May of 1983. I was working as a summer clerk for Jim Bordas. Jim owned a trailer park near West Liberty and I lived in one of the trailers until I returned to the school in the fall. Every day I drove to work on Bethany Pike, passing through Oglebay Park. It was exhilarating! The park was always lush and green. Its grounds were always perfectly manicured and it seemed like you could see for miles over the gently rolling hills. I was especially impressed by the mansion, sitting above the roadway with its majestic portico and pillars. In March, 1991, I joined Bordas & Bordas and moved to Wheeling on a fulltime basis. Oglebay Park was back in my sights. Even as we were in the process of house hunting, everybody asked us the same question: "Have you gotten your zoo pass yet?" My wife began joking that a zoo pass must be mandatory. Well, okay, maybe not mandatory, but I've come to learn that it's a very good idea to have one--especially if you have children. Through the years, our girls have been to Oglebay's zoo countless times and have also enjoyed zoo camp in the summer. We've also been able to help out newcomers to the city by sharing guest passes to the zoo to make their visit a little more enjoyable.
As I was sitting at PNC Park on Tuesday night waiting for the first pitch of the National League Wild Card Game, a strange thing happened. All of the Pirates got & younger. Not really younger, but younger than me. I was looking at the program and not a single player was older than me. The last time that I had taken my seat for a Pirates playoff game was in 1992 as a 17-year-old senior in high school and EVERY player on the team was older than me. I paused for a moment and looked over at my dad and smiled.

All of us are survivors in some way, but we think of surviving cancer as being more difficult. Experts tell you that if you go ten years without a reoccurrence of cancer then you are really a true survivor. Well, I went ten years and then the rascal showed up again. What I have gained from this experience is that every day without treatment should be added to your tally of survivor days, something like accumulating points in life. These points should make you so grateful that you can quit worrying about reaching some special milestone like six months, or ten years. That doesn't really mean anything. What's important is that you live each day. You will hear people say, "He lost his life to cancer," and this is true of someone who focused so much on their illness that they quit living the days that they have left in this world. None of us know when our time will be up in this world. Do something good, be someone special, help others, and love. I saw this little message on the Internet and thought it was a wonderful way to live. Aspire to inspire, before you expire.
This October, I would like to remind every woman to please schedule yourself a mammogram. If you're over the age of forty it may be time to get a baseline done or earlier if you have any family history of breast cancer. Consult with your family doctor about when he/she feels you should start getting your mammograms. Men, you are not excluded from this cancer either. This year I lost my sister-in-law Liz to breast cancer. Liz had been a breast cancer survivor for about fifteen years. Here is a little of her story.
One of the favorite parts of my work week is undoubtedly each Friday when I make the trek up Route 88 to West Liberty University to record the latest episode of the Bordas and Bordas Legal Review. Each week I discuss with viewers legal issues affecting our area, our state, and our nation. It was a little over a year ago that I first hit the airwaves as the host of this weekly television program. I have to admit that despite the fact that I am rarely at a loss for words, I was pretty nervous about being the host of a TV show that would be broadcast to tens of thousands of people each day. After all, I had absolutely no experience in television, or any other form of media for that matter. However, my nerves were quickly put to ease when I met the students at West Liberty who make up the production crew. They were energetic, eager to learn, and obviously up to the task of making even a rookie look good.
One of the things that we are proud to fight for at Bordas & Bordas is the youth of our community. One aspect of this commitment is our dedication to youth sports. This is a very important commitment to me personally. Not only do my own kids participate in various athletic programs in the Ohio Valley, but I also know from my time as a Cadet at the United States Military Academy at West Point how important athletics are to the development of our young people. As General Douglas MacArthur (USMA Class of 1903) said, "Upon the fields of friendly strife are sown the seeds that on other fields on other days will bear the fruits of victory.: General MacArthur's point was that the lessons of sport, learned on the "fields of friendly strife," teach teamwork, perseverance, and discipline. Those lessons bear fruit no matter what the future holds for our children.
