For some people it comes easy. For others, not so much. Some people say it way too easily while others refuse. There are people who look at it as a sign of weakness while others just feel there is no need for it. And yet, there are even those who are afraid to say it for whatever the reason. I’m...
Honor is one of the nicest things to have, and it’s also a very nice thing to share. “It’s an honor to do this for you” is a very nice thing to say to someone. Unfortunately, this act is not done enough. The American Legion Honor Team, from Hice-Shutes Post 170, performs an act of honor every time...
I am sorry to admit that I am not much of a reader and never have been. I’ve always read just enough to get by. If I do read a book, it’s usually a biography. My problem is that I have difficulty concentrating on just one thing at a time. As a student, I could not have any distractions, such as...
The Democratic Party has a serious problem, and the name of that problem is identity politics. Ever since Donald Trump’s surprise win on Nov. 8, identity politics has been a hot topic of discussion in the media.

By now, your Thanksgiving guests have gone home, or you have returned from visiting relatives or friends and are now ready to begin planning for Christmas. I’m sure many of you ventured out on Black Friday and took advantage of some really fantastic deals. I hope you didn’t sustain any injuries...
The day after tomorrow is Thanksgiving, a day when we should all reflect on the many things for which we are thankful for. It’s also a time for families to get together and enjoy each other’s company and share a little love. We should all do this more than just once a year. The family unit is not...
Thanksgiving is a week from Thursday, yet the stores are already getting ready for Christmas. It would be nice if we could appreciate these special days at a slower pace. It’s unfortunate that, when we think of Thanksgiving, we think more about Black Friday than about the day when we should be...
