OUR VIEW: This is getting embarrassing.       We do not pretend to know why people starve and mistreat animals. We don’t live in that world - we don’t want to live in that world. We thank God that there are law enforcement officers and humane treatment people who do live in that world....
EDITORIAL --- Prayers.   If ever there were a time our nation needed prayer, it is now. Unrest on the domestic and international fronts is unsettling everyone. We are transitioning out of a pandemic, but we are not there yet. Conflicting statements lead to uncertainty. In just a few weeks’ time,...
Vic's View -- No, not “committed” - language matters.     The subject for today - again, not “the former guy” - is the taking of one’s own life. This is a portion of a guest writer article by Julia Park Tracey, appearing in the Huffington Post: “Our 21-year-old son died by suicide in 2019, a fact I...
