God

Born American

Whew – we’re all still here

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)

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?

Maverick. To many, they’re unorthodox, non-conformist and independent-minded. To others, they swim upstream as they seek new truths and disprove old ones.

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)

Love Is Life

Local columnist Jimmy Reed urges readers, particularly the gentlemen, to remember their sweeties on Valentine’s Day and to also remember the importance of love and telling those we love that we do. (February 8, 2011, Page 4A)

Happy The Cat

Those who write newspaper columns, local writer Jimmy Reed says, don’t know who reads them, where they live or how they’ll react. One of his recent columns, however, got a positive reaction with a reader giving Reed a couple of examples of God answering prayers. (January 25, 2011, Page 4)

Still, I Ask

Local columnist Jimmy Reed wonders sometimes what and how God thinks, and he’s sure He has a sense of humor. While knowing that God knows best, Reed says he still asks for things. (January 11, 2011, Page 4)
