        Onomatopoeia

        Local columnist Jimmy Reed found a way to jumpstart his literature class when teaching them about onomatopoeia — words that create a clearer meaning by suggesting certain sounds, or that can be used for rhetorical effect. (March 8, 2011, Page 4)

          Three of this, three of that – lots of threes

          Remember the saying that “good things come in threes”? Start thinking about that just a bit and you can really see a list start to grow of things with three members, three parts, three words, et cetera. Editor Don Whitten makes out his list, from TV networks to musical groups to sports connections, and then wonders if readers might have a few more to add. (March 7, 2011, Page 4A)

              Knowing first hand how helpful the Red Cross is

              Just the smell of smoke from a structure fire is enough to give Staff Writer Alyssa Schnugg flashbacks to the night years ago when her house caught fire.

                  Whitewashing American history hurtful to all

                  Do you remember the epic TV presentation “Roots” from the late-1970s? Perhaps you’ve seen it since and felt its impact. Local columnist Deidra Jackson recalls when she saw the series and wonders about how we don’t seem to have many insightful, educational and entertaining things like that to teach history to the youth of today. With political correctness and other factors, she wonders if we’re not whitewashing our history, which does no one any real good. (March 3, 2011, Page 4)
