To the editor: Burning of fossil fuels leads to more CO2 in the air. More CO2 leads to a greenhouse effect that traps heat in the atmosphere. Warmer air holds more water. More water in the air leads to more violent storms. More violent storms lead to floods, landslides, and tornadoes. This leads...
To the editor: I am writing to publicly acknowledge the generosity and helpfulness of your local historian Rebecca Shank. I recently called ahead to make a half-hour appointment to see the Silliman House, and Becky spent an entire afternoon, the next morning and noon showing it to me, pulling out...
To the editor: I had my right knee surgery done Feb. 21 in Naples, Fla. After the three-day hospital stay, I went to Arlington Circle Rehab, which too is in Naples. I was there 10 days. This place is like Hollywood. While in Rehab I saw people that had a lot more issues than I. I wondered what...

Shortly after my wife and I were married back in 2003, we started thinking about leaving apartment life behind and buying our first house.
