Opinion

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)

      Three of this, three of that – lots of threes

      Remember the saying that “good things come in threes”? Start thinking about that just a bit and you can really see a list start to grow of things with three members, three parts, three words, et cetera. Editor Don Whitten makes out his list, from TV networks to musical groups to sports connections, and then wonders if readers might have a few more to add. (March 7, 2011, Page 4A)

          Knowing first hand how helpful the Red Cross is

          Just the smell of smoke from a structure fire is enough to give Staff Writer Alyssa Schnugg flashbacks to the night years ago when her house caught fire. She and her family got out safely, and it was the Red Cross volunteer who showed up to help them through the first hours and days of the tragedy that she remembers as she urges everyone to support, and get involved with, their local Red Cross unit. (March 4, 2011, Page 4A)

              Whitewashing American history hurtful to all

              Do you remember the epic TV presentation “Roots” from the late-1970s? Perhaps you’ve seen it since and felt its impact. Local columnist Deidra Jackson recalls when she saw the series and wonders about how we don’t seem to have many insightful, educational and entertaining things like that to teach history to the youth of today. With political correctness and other factors, she wonders if we’re not whitewashing our history, which does no one any real good. (March 3, 2011, Page 4)

                  Are we on the fast track to $4 gasoline?

                  Did you notice all the gas price jumps last weekend? Editor Don Whitten takes a look at the multiple hikes and how prices are comparing now to just a month ago and to a year ago. Is the trend heading toward $4 a gallon gasoline, something that hit lots of people hard in 2008? Will the reaction be the same? (March 2, 2011, Page 4)
