Teenage employment

Many teenagers are desperately seeking employment in these times. I joined them many years ago: in fact, I began work at age 11 and was furious when the "powers that be" decided every person under the age of sixteen had to have a doctor certify that the individual was not harming his health.

Ask for help

There's an old story about a mule that fell into a hole. The farmer kept shoveling dirt in the hole. The mule packed it down until it got out! The mule rose above its circumstances. Many times we can also rise above our circumstances.

Reader, wife support removing Confederate battle flag

Several years ago, my wife and I, along with our youngest son, his wife and their children, attended a Fourth of July celebration in Bath, Maine. Bath is a picturesque little city which only Maine seems capable of providing. It is also a seafaring town, home to the Bath Iron Works, where ships have slid down the ways for close to 200 years.

So many events which have taken place during the past century which have been instrumental in the growth of this country have been left out of our history books and articles of today.
