      Don’t be afraid to speak up, ask questions

        Comedian Jeff Foxworthy did a routine prior to the 1996 Summer Olympics held in Atlanta that gave some alternative events if the games were “localized.” Editor Don Whitten takes a similar approach to the winter games that begin soon, wondering how we might localize some of the events with the weather we’ve had recently and usually have this time of the year. (February 3, 2014, Page 4)
