To the Editor:   I am saddened by all the women and men who laughed at the President’s mocking of women who found the courage to speak out. And, I have to wonder if they realize that they are raising their sons and daughters to perpetuate a “ boys will be boys culture” and a “ girls are less...
To the Editor:   Every month on our yearly calendars is a commemoration of awareness of one thing or another.  October seems to have a theme of sorts, as it is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, National Bullying Month, National Crime Prevention month and also safe schools has a week during October...
To the Editor:   I believe there are about 900 Federal judges in the country, and I am sure that many of them are qualified to sit on the Supreme Court. Appointments use to be regularly confirmed by near unanimous votes. A golden retriever could pick someone near the center, fully disclose their...
To the Editor:   October is National Bullying Prevention Month, with much of the focus on kids and bullying in school.  What we don’t hear as often, is the effects of adult bullying.  In reality, this problem is just as prevalent, but is often not as widely discussed. Nearly three-quarters of...
To the Editor:   If you’re a parent, chances are you are somewhere in the middle of back to school frenzy:  school supply lists, making sure your kids have plenty of pencils and paper, double checking the school bus schedule, marking your calendar with extracurricular activities, and more.  But...

To the Editor:      Sit on a committee?  Help at a church, hospital, or school event?  Volunteer to drive?  Mow lawns?  Find a way. Motivations for volunteering are numerous, personal, unique; e.g. helping others, feeling needed, being productive, less isolated.  Be involved in something you’re...
To the Editor:   Within the next few years our communities will lay to rest the last of our WWII Veterans, with regret but also wishing them well in their new life.  This Memorial Day is an opportunity to pay particular attention to their stories, which used to be told in person by those who were...
To the Editor:   In recognition of National Police Week 2018, communities across the United States will come together May 13-19 to honor and remember those law enforcement officers who made the ultimate sacrifice, as well as the family members, friends and fellow officers they left behind. -There...
