Let citizens speak by referendum

A few weeks ago, I read a letter in the Chronicle-Independent that presented a good point. Many of us have strong feelings about the proposed sports complex but we are too busy to take time to express them. The writer specifically mentioned young people with children.

Letters to Santa -- 2011

Dear Santa,

December 19, 2011 | | Miscellaneous

Help me understand…

I have memorized Lindsey Graham's response to me. He says, "My job as your United States Senator is to represent your interests.

If he does, we predict it will be met with the same lack of enthusiasm as his proposed debate.

Sweet facts

Candy canes are very popular holiday treats and are often used to decorate Christmas trees. That hooked shape certainly makes them whimsical and able to hang on tree boughs. But candy canes weren't always the curved and colorful treats they are today. In the 1700s, candy canes were nothing more than straight white sticks of sugar candy used to decorate Christmas trees. A choirmaster at Cologne Cathedral decided that having the ends bent to depict a shepherd's crook and passing them out during church services would help keep children quiet. It was not until roughly the 20th century ...
