Violence and destruction are not the answer

The Way I See It by DON WEST As a columnist, having become accustomed to expressing my opinions, and knowing that my readers will sometime agree with me and sometimes will vehemently disagree with me, I take a certain amount of security in knowing that I will probably not be murdered for the thoughts that […]

The gift of family

Lessons Learned by GLENETTA SHUEY Family may come in different forms. Growing up in a small town and then attending an even smaller Catholic School for twelve years makes for close attachments, much like extended family. I entered first grade at St. Maria Goretti Elementary/High School when I was only 5 years old. There was […]

Mastering the art of doing nothing

In My Own Little World by AUBREY BROUSSARD One of my greatest personal challenges is to master the art of doing absolutely nothing. In today’s fast paced world combined with my personal self-proclaimed work-a-holic condition, I find it difficult to just learn how to relax and enjoy a day off. As a society, our lives […]

Reaching our potential

Lessons Learned by GLENETTA SHUEY My first psychology class in college I learned about the self-fulfilling prophecy. It is rather simple actually. If you are told often enough that you are insignificant or dumb, eventually you are going to feel that way and resign yourself to that fact. Conversely, if you are praised and valued […]

I’ve got a song burning in my head

In My Own Little World by AUBREY BROUSSARD I think everyone knows how distracting and annoying it can be to get a song stuck in your head, especially if it’s a particularly bad but catchy bubble-gum pop-song.

Industry periodicals, educational material, trade journals, and financial information were all important ways to better myself and attempt to find […]

Get with it, Granny!

Lessons Learned by GLENETTA SHUEY Each time my grandson, Chase, (who recently turned 9) enters my house, he asks the same question, “Waz up, ole Granny?” I never get a chance to answer, as it is posed more as a greeting than a true question. He is off in a flash. I couldn’t really answer […]

Peace on Earth

The Way I See It by DON WEST There will be new life in 2015 and with every baby born, we are assured that God has not given up on us – yet. Many of us will say goodbye to loved ones and friends who will depart this earth for a better life on the […]

No resolutions for moi!

Lessons Learned by GLENETTA SHUEY Tomorrow is a new year: new opportunities, new challenges, and probably a plethora of resolutions. It is holiday time! I love holidays and all the traditions, except for maybe making resolutions. I have my own take on that custom. For Halloween, one of my characters was Audrey Hepburn. I admired […]

I loved him first

The Final Word by DONA H. SMITH One of my favorite books to read to my youngest, Casey, was “Love You Forever” by Robert Munsch. I was always touched by the words, “I’ll love you forever. I’ll like you for always. As long as I’m living, my baby you’ll be.” The words could never be […]
