    Glad to be living in the 21st century

    Sinus infections and colds are one thing; pneumonia is a completely different animal. Editor Don Whitten talks about dealing with the illness that, he points out, would have killed his grandparents and put his parents in the hospital. With modern medicine and the good health care we have in the 21st century, however, it can be dealt with. (March 14, 2011, Page 4)

              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

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. She and her family got out safely, and it was the Red Cross volunteer who showed up to help them through the first hours and days of the tragedy that she remembers as she urges everyone to support, and get involved with, their local Red Cross unit. (March 4, 2011, Page 4A)
