      Rounding up the ‘important’ school supplies

      Have you filled the school supply list for your student? After seeing lists in several places, Editor Don Whitten recalled the way lists were made during his days as a student.

          Dreamers and Doers

          People often fall into one of two categories – dreamers and doers. Occasionally, however, there are those who are both. Local columnist Jimmy Reed talks about one of those, a student of his who is working to overcome lupus on the way to becoming a doctor. (July 5, 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)

                    Maverick

                    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. Local columnist Jimmy Reed, a self-proclaimed maverick, tells the story of one of the all-time mavericks, Albert Einstein. (April 5, 2011, Page 4A)
