Cahn: Crime reports can leave you in stitches

A week ago, I named first responders as my People of the Year for 2015. Included among them are our police department officers and sheriff's office deputies.

Cahn: TIME makes best choice in Merkel

I'm one of those people who loves TIME magazine's idea of picking a person (or thing) of the year.

There have been years when the choices have reflected pure evil -- Hitler in 1938, Stalin the next year and in 1942 and the Ayatollah Khomeini in 1979.
