  • Many in the community still need help

    When the going gets tough, the tough get going. No, relax, I’m not going to ply you with Lombardi-isms this week, but when I saw pleas for help from two area nonprofits in the last week, I found myself thinking about the need for us to dig down and support people in need in our community.

  • A little more Goldwater, a little less Plato

    Many Americans can recall what was perhaps the first really nasty ad of the television era, run by Lyndon Johnson’s 1964 presidential campaign.
