OPINION

  • Keep advertising

    Times are tough. We all know it. We constantly hear it from the media and we can see it. It seems everyone is cutting back. Employee numbers or hours are being reduced. Some store shelves remain empty when inventory has been sold.

  • Bless the beasts

    The weather this winter hasn’t been as unforgiving to us in Marion County as some years but it still concerns me to see pets outdoors. In any kind of weather, pets need adequate shelter, food, and water.

  • Random Thoughts

    My dear friend, Margaret Wolf, will be 100 years old today (Wednesday). She is about to catch up with me. We spent a lot of time together when we were young. Her daughter and my daughter still are good friends. Happy birthday, Margaret! I have a suggestion for our congressmen. For years, they have been receiving huge salaries and a lot of perks. What if they contributed some of their salaries to the government in this time of need? It would make us admire them and vote for them when the time comes. You know what President Kennedy said, “Ask not what your country can do for you — ask what you can do for your country.” I’m probably dreaming.

PEOPLE
