        Need something to jump-start summer reading?

        Summer reading used to be commonplace among youngsters, but now there are other distractions. Editor Don Whitten suggests two books – “Theodore Boone: The Abduction” by John Grisham and “The Sword of Darrow” by the father-son duo of Hal and Alex Malchow – that might be just the ticket to get people reading this summer. (June 24, 2011, Page 4A)

            What’s the news of the day? Weather? The Mid-East? The economy? Congress and the president?

              Relationships with fathers change through the years

              When you’re really young, your father looks after you, takes care of you and gives you things. A few years later, he’s the one who teaches you to ride a bike, catch a fish and learn about discipline.

                A ‘re-user’ is trying to learn to be a ‘recycler’

                Editor Don Whitten admits he’s not the best in the world at recycling, but says he’s learning. He takes a look back at when recycling was actually “re-using” items, remembering multiple uses for cans, bottles, jars, et cetera. (June 15, 2011, Page 4)

                  With ‘friends’ like Mark, who needs …

                  Editor Don Whitten writes about an email message that somehow got past his spam filter recently, noting that it appears scammers must be having a tough time with the economy, too, if they’re continuing to go after folks like him who never respond. (June 13, 2011, Page 4)
