    An effective home remedy or old wives’ tale?

    Editor Don Whitten writes about an unusual – to him – site he ran across earlier this week: a clear plastic bag half full of water and holding two pennies hanging from the corner of a back doorway.

It appears there are crates and crates of them that were left in South Korea, but whether or not collectors and others will get a chance to buy them is up in the air. Editor Don Whitten sees this as a chance to raise a little money and please a lot of collectors and former soldiers. (October 4, 2010, Page 4A)

                    Language crucial, but do we need all these new words?

                    Local columnist T.J. Ray has always stressed the importance of language, but he’s getting a little bothered by some of the words that are working their way into everyday use.
