As a toddler, taking a nap was something I didn’t enjoy doing. At this time in my life, taking an afternoon nap has become quite enjoyable. It has become something that is also quite necessary, unless I want to find myself falling asleep during Jeopardy. I’m an early riser, even without an alarm...
To the editor: At this time of the year it is easy to be caught up in the rush of the season without remembering or even thinking of the reason we go through all of this “hullabaloo.” So as a way of slowing us down and getting us to reflect, I share a seasonal poem by Lawrence Ferlinghetti called...
To the editor: I have noticed something about our county, looking at all of the numbers that the county clerk put out about election day. A majority of voters out there voted Republican and my question is why? You are voting against your own interest! Our county ranks 55 out 83 for median...
To the editor: How many of you remember grandma`s feather tick? Especially around the Christmas season with memorizing snow flakes coming down from the sky with the diamond like effect and sparkle as to call us to come outdoors to play. I don`t see many children outdoors playing in the snow, and...

We received our first measurable snowfall on Sunday, Dec. 4. Channel 3 News said that the snow would start to fall around 1 p.m. that afternoon, and for once, their forecast was right on the money. We arranged our Sunday plans so that by 1:30 p.m. we were secured inside the house, the cars were...
To the editor: The season of giving has nothing to do with any holiday, it’s just the opposite. The season of giving should be year-round, from the heart, not the billfold. The people that receive should take it one more step from their heart, not from their billfold, but keep the giving on by...
To the editor: I am writing in response to a letter to the editor about Jimmy Carter ... you really think Jimmy Carter was the worst President? What about Nixon? What about Reagan and his scam called trickle down economics? Here is a fact: statistically the economy has done better under the...
