No change in spending, less change in pockets

The Way I See It by Don West Last year, Bobbye and I were fortunate enough to have the opportunity to travel up to the Northeast visiting friends, enjoying the beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains, seeing and participating in the lifestyles of the Amish people, enjoying lobster from the Atlantic, soaking in the history […]

100 on the random

Lessons Learned by Glenetta Shuey Since entering the world of teens once again, now as a Granny, I have had to adapt to a completely new vocabulary coming at  me. When my girls were younger, it wasn’t nearly as difficult, as I was a high school English teacher and was around this age group all […]

Math and Mona Lisa

I’m Just Sayin’ by Sheila Smith Last year I decided to cut household expenses. I opted for a cell phone plan with less features, cancelled my internet subscription and nixed using movie and music streaming services. I felt that such cuts made sense when my only other options were canceling utilities and insurance plans. So […]

Facing fears with a leap of faith

In My Own Little World by Aubrey Broussard I’m not afraid of much but for me, my fear of heights is right up there with my deep-rooted phobia of commitment and singing in front of an audience. A couple of years ago I was presented with the opportunity to somewhat address those fears when I […]

Reaping dollars from addiction

The Way I See It by Don West At least since the days of Prohibition, and probably before, there existed a group of people who considered alcohol, in any form, detrimental to our being, mentally, physically and spiritually.  There was even an organization (The Women’s Temperance Union) which staged protests and marches in towns and […]

Why would You do that for me?

The Way I See It by Don West This is a column I wrote that was published 10 years ago. I think it is just as appropriate today, maybe more so.  Apriest once told me that during his daily prayers, he studies the Cross, and simply asks, “What am I doing, that made you do […]

A note before my birthday

The Way I See It by Don West There just a few more shopping days until my birthday, so you better put on the old thinking cap and get busy. I am not hard to please: gift certificates to almost any eating establishment are always a good choice, along with airline tickets in case the […]

Actions speak louder

Lessons Learned by Glenetta Shuey “Words may show a man’s wit, but actions his meaning.” Benjamin Franklin… …Or, as my Dad would have said, “Actions speak louder than words.” For me, that defines true friendship. Anyone can say the words you want to hear, but in reality even comforting words which are genuine are only […]

My garden doesn’t grow very green

I’m Just Sayin’ by Sheila Smith Spring is here! It is the time of year when yards are perfectly mowed and edged, shrubs are manicured, mulch is replaced, soil is tilled and seeded, beds are refreshed with new flowers and a few more bits of decor are added around the patio. Except at my house. […]
