Older and wiser

Lessons Learned by GLENETTA SHUEY A       s of yesterday, I am another year older and possibly wiser. That’s debatable, according to my children. This has been a year of serious changes in my life and much reflection on my part. I began my 62nd year of life knowing that I had some […]

Keep the faith

I’m Just Sayin’ by SHEILA SMITH Eight or nine years ago, I penned a column about a Christmas miracle my family experienced when I was about 12. This week that miracle kept giving.

Christmas commercialism and the reason for the season

In My Own Little World by AUBREY BROUSSARD I love Christmas, but as I grow older, I’m beginning to feel that, in all of the hustle and bustle of the season, on top of the extra spending, it often feels as though the joy of the season is sometimes lost in all the chaos and […]

Please keep Christ in your Christmas

The Way I See It by DON WEST As the years pass, so too, do the lives of those we love.

The beat goes on!

Lessons Learned by GLENETTA SHUEY The Beatles: how I loved them, especially Ringo and Paul! How disparate, right? What can I say, I was 14 and had tastes and interests that were quite diverse. When Sunday night came around and the Ed Sullivan Show was about to begin, you could count on me to be […]
