          The road to Jericho

          Most know the story of the Good Samaritan, but how many of us practice charity with any regularity? Local columnist T.J. Ray takes a closer look at a handout he got the other day that explores the Indian Creed.

            Embrace assumptions and draw the wrong conclusions

            It’s probably surprising the number of times we just assume that something we hear, read or think just isn’t that way.

              Federal tax burden numbers disturbing

              Did you realize that nearly half of American households will owe nothing to the federal government in income tax for 2010, and some of them will actually get back more money than they paid in because of tax credits? Editor Don Whitten takes a look at how that happens and wonders if a solution might eliminate some of the factions developing in the country. (April 13, 2011, Page 4)

                    Teaching saving tougher for parents these days

                    There are things parents teach, or attempt to teach, their children. One involves money – earning it, saving it, spending it, giving it to the needy, et cetera. Teaching saving, Editor Don Whitten writes, is getting tougher and tougher, especially with savings producing little to no return that would provide motivation and incentive. (April 11, 2011, Page 4A)
