LOOK BACK, LOOK WEST

By LeRoy Jones

Our country is becoming more and more ethnically diverse and many strive for political correctness to the point that if my grandparents could come back from the grave they would surely say, “Where are we?” Santa Claus can’t say, “Ho Ho Ho” any more because some people among us have put a deviant meaning to the word “Ho” instead of the meaning given in the Merriam- Webster dictionary.

Pet Corner

by De De Young

A dog is a great gift for Christmas. It is the gift that keeps on giving and something you must put a lot of thought into. Getting the right dog for the right family requires a lot of planning. Keep in mind the responsibility of a dog, and the activity level of the family.

A Word From The Superintendent

By Brad Overton 

The Thanksgiving holiday is one of my favorite holidays of the year. I sometimes forget the true meaning of thanksgiving. I always enjoy time with family and friends as well as the food. However, there are so many other things in which I am thankful.

Pearl Harbor Day

By LeRoy Jones

Do you remember where you were on December 7, 1941? Most Americans living then will have that date etched into their memory for the remainder of their life. December 7 was on Sunday that year, and as was usually the case on Sunday morning, I was seated in front of the radio to listen to the reading of the comics, or “funny papers” as we called them then.

Savvy Senior

By Jim Miller

Dear Savvy Senior, I had dental insurance through my work for many years but lost it when I retired. Where can retirees find affordable dental care? Need a Dentist
