I was saddened by the choice of the senior(s) of the graduating class in (the) Lexington (school) district, but rejoice with the students who chose to include the "Invocation" in their program.

No matter the cause, the modern woman has no idea how different keeping presentable clothing was in earlier days.

If you are a parent of adult children, you may recognize some of these. If you're the adult child, you may be in for an awakening.

The reality is marriage isn't always bliss. Marriage is about ups and downs. Some couples are ready to give up on each other when times are too difficult.
