With “indoor” Super Bowls in domed stadiums, it’s been a comfortable 70 or so inside even if it was in the teens and snowing outside.

9/11 is not a happy day for anyone

The wounds are too fresh and too painful, staff writer Alyssa Schnugg writes,  to make it seem correct for someone to say “Happy Patriot Day” on 9/11. Schnugg explores the approach some have to 9/11, Memorial Day and other “holidays.” (September 13, 2012, Page 4)

Letters to the Editor

We can give up the big drinks, can’t we?

Banning the sale of large sugar-ladened drinks – is it government overreach or government help for the obese?
