At their meeting on Nov. 5, the Midway School Reunion's theme will be "World War II Remembrances and Remembrances of Our Principal, J. Hoke Murphree."

I sometimes wonder whether politicians actually write the books they release. In the case of Texas Gov. Rick Perry's book, I sometimes wonder whether he bothered to read it, either.

Noted and passed

• This month's award for poor taste goes to the Pima County (Arizona) Republican Party, which is planning to raffle off a gun like the one used to shoot Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. Our dim view of this has nothing to do with second amendment rights, but rather spotlights an exercise in poor judgment, given the tragedy that occurred in Rep. Giffords' district in January, in which a gunman killed six people and wounded 13 others.

Dear Annie: I have been a single mother for 20 years. Four months ago, I was talked into letting one of my daughter's friends stay with us while her parents searched for a new home in another state.

Bears and wolves find a voice in the wilderness

WASHINGTON -- If politicians preying upon your attentions this season fail to inspire, you might seek common cause with the beasts -- the four-legged variety rather than those running for office.

L-EHS student concerned about animal shelter

I am writing this letter about the concerns of the Walter M. Crowe Animal Shelter. Our animal shelter has its pros and cons. The benefits of an animal shelter is it provides protection for those individuals that cannot afford the proper care for their animal. Think about it: what would our city look like if we did not have an animal shelter? There would be dogs and cats running around freely. Every day I ride down Hwy. 1, I see a helpless dog on the side of the rode with its ribs sticking out from lack of nutrients.

Power, divided

We've always believed the United States government works best when power is divided -- that is, with a president from one party and a Congress controlled by the opposite party. As of now, of course, we have a Democratic president and a split Congress, with the House of Representatives controlled by Republicans and the Senate dominated by Democrats. There are multiple forecasting models out there for the upcoming election, with most of them giving the GOP a better-than-even chance of gaining a majority in the Senate while retaining control of the House.
