Different dog, same fleas

The Way I See It by Don West I was rummaging through some old files and came upon this column written in 1998. Seems that not much has changed – we have just digressed from one lying Clinton to another lying Clinton. Apparently, we fail to learn from our mistakes – but it’s not too late. […]

Enjoying scary stuff

Lessons Learned by Glenetta Shuey I am one of those nuts who gets a thrill out of watching scary shows. I do have my limits, though. Most of my friends and family think I am utterly crazy. That is not to say that I don’t peek between my fingers at the scariest parts or jump and […]

School days save the world

The Way I See It by Sheila Smith For many, the most wonderful time of the year is upon us: back-to-school time. I know the mothers in my circle of friends are ready. They aren’t necessarily ready to wake the kids early or make sure everyone gets out the door without being placed in a […]

Mothering is a blessing

By Glenetta Shuey I think of the young moms out there and smile. I remember those days when you had one in your arms, diaper bag on the other arm,  hand-in-hand with a toddler in tow. I loved those days so much. I miss them. Unlike my mama, who had eight children, I only had two, […]

Do all lives really matter?

The Way I See It by Don West OK! I really didn’t want to approach this subject and, before I finish this column, I may send it to the trash can. It is an extremely volatile subject and I am sure to step on some toes before I am finished. Of course, stepping on toes […]

Appreciate your health

Lessons Learned by Glenetta Shuey “The greatest wealth is health” is a quote by Virgil, an ancient Roman poet of the Augustan period. Through my recent life experiences, I have to agree wholeheartedly with this statement. It is so easy for all of us to take our health for granted. Most of us were born […]

Only as old as you feel

Lessons Learned by GLENETTA SHUEY We are all familiar with the expression, “You’re  only as old as you feel!”  Well, if that is truly the case, this last week at Disney World with my four grandkids, I felt very old indeed. I told a friend recently that I must  have had a period of temporary […]

Independence Day was the first Brexit

I’m Just Sayin’ by SHEILA SMITH North America was reached by Viking Leif Ericson around 1000 AD, and for centuries after, various lost European dudes stumbled upon the continent, each thinking they were the first. They found it to be the perfect place to spread smallpox and imperialism, so more Europeans started showing up and […]

Perfect timing

In My Own Little World by AUBREY BROUSSARD I firmly believe that everything that happens in our lives is for a reason, and God puts certain people in our paths to guide us along this complicated journey from the cradle to the grave. Sometimes, we are the people He puts in the lives of others […]

We must change our own behavior

The Way I See It by DON WEST I am a recovering drug addict. My drug of choice is nicotine. I have been clean for nearly a year (July 11). I smoked for 53 years. I started at age 16 and never looked back. When I began smoking, I would sneak cigarettes from my parents, […]
