    GOP hopefuls in the middle of ‘silly season’

    The term “silly season” is probably related more to sports than anything else, but it could certainly be applied to presidential races and potential candidates. Editor Don Whitten says the political silly season is already in full force, and he takes a look at the ins and outs of Republican candidates to oppose Barack Obama in 2012. (May 25, 2011, Page 4)

        Sturm Und Drang

        Americans are now experiencing tremendous storm and stress – or Sturm und Drang, as the Germans call it. Local columnist Jimmy Reed writes about the challenges we’ve faced through the years, and notes that we should use the upcoming Memorial Day holiday to honor those who gave on battlefields – but also those who fought and won economic and natural wars on the home front. (May 24, 2011, Page 4)

          911, 411, 811 not the only quick dial numbers

          Most of us have dialed 4-1-1 on our phones to get someone’s number. We’ve been taught to dial 9-1-1 in case of an emergency. And we’ve heard about how you should “call 8-1-1 before you dig.” Did you know, though, that there are other quick dial numbers. Editor Don Whitten shares what he’s learned about 211, 311, 511 and others. (May 23, 2011, Page 4)

              Mr. Anonymous and Old Fogies

              Do you get bothered when people use the term “old fogies” about older citizens? Local columnist T.J. Ray does, too, and he was upset with a recent piece titled “Old Fogie Pride” that came his way – until he gave it a closer look. (May 20, 2011, Page 4A)

                Where do you expect to be on Sunday?

                Have you heard about the prediction that the world will come to an end this Saturday and that some of us will be headed to heaven and the others left behind? Editor Don Whitten takes on Harold Camping’s prediction and says we need to be ready any time, including Saturday, but that he seriously doubts Camping’s accurancy. (May 19, 2011, Page 4)

                  Isn’t it too soon for another 100-year flood?

                  We’ll never see a flood like the one in 1927. There will never be a hurricane like Camille again. You’d think we’d learn to never say “never” about weather and related disasters. Even talk about 100-year floods and such are hard to understand, so Editor Don Whitten takes a closer look at what a 100-year event really is. (May 18, 2011, Page 4)
