Memory: sin or salvation?

Lessons Learned by Glenetta Shuey “What was I talking about?”  “What was her name?” “Where did I put that again?” “Was that today?” These are questions that I have asked all too many times, and I am fairly sure that some of you out there are in the same predicament. I recently read an article […]

Buy high, sell low

The Way I See It by Don West I am watching the stock market very closely as I prepare this column on Election Day.  If the liberals elect Clinton and the gang, marijuana stocks will rise significantly. There will be more potheads per capita in Washington than fleas in a circus. It may be the only […]

Recording our journey

Lessons Learned by Glenetta Shuey As a college student “back in the day”, I was made to do journals for many of my courses. I rather liked it. Then when I became a teacher, I decided to have my students do so as well. They didn’t like it nearly as much. A few of my […]

Don’t let kids be little goblins

The Way I See It by Don West Okay, I didn’t want to be the Halloween Grinch, but enough is too much.  When we first moved into the neighborhood, we had nice youngsters who came to the door, rang the bell, announced “trick or treat” and thanked us for whatever goodies we dropped into their […]

Hello, gray

In My Own Little World by Aubrey Broussard Just last year I found the first clusters of gray hair at each of my temples. Somehow I managed to be the only one of my former high school classmates in my group of friends and among my family who made it well into my 40s with […]

Exercise your right to vote

The Way I See It by Don West Well, the time has come to “fish or cut bait.” You can vote early or you can wait until Election Day, but I hope you do take the time to vote.  Yeah, I know, the choices are as nauseating as they have ever been and the fact […]

Alive with hope

Lessons Learned by Glenetta Shuey I absolutely love the series “Grey’s Anatomy”  and I have for years! It is a show about doctors, for those of you not in the know. The characters are lovable, smart and thoroughly interesting. The plot lines are complex and often touching. My life is no plot line for sure, but […]

Protest, but choose your method wisely

The Way I See It by Don West Let me establish my mindset before I launch into this rant.  I firmly believe that Colin Kaepernick has a right as a citizen of this great nation to speak his mind, protest, demonstrate and use his public position to further his cause.  Millions of men and women […]

Life after sugar

Lessons Learned by Glenetta Shuey I have been considered petite or little all of my life, then my body started to betray me! How dare it? After all, I have been nearly an exercise fanatic most of my life! If I am to be honest though, my vice has always been my fondness for sweets. My […]

Wagging tails on the political trail

The Way I See It by Don West I mentioned last week that there are some people who have not been especially astute when it comes to raising their children, therefore they should never consider owning a dog.  There are some who demand respect and discipline from their children, yet would allow their dogs to have […]
