Miller Orchestra still going strong

Reading your article recently about Paul Tanner it appears from your last paragraph that you think the Glenn Miller Orchestra is no more. To the contrary. It is still the number one big band in the world. They travel worldwide. They were recently in Asheville N.C. at the Grove Park Inn's "Big Band Weekend" along with the Tommy Dorsey Band. Nick Hilscher is the current Director. Nick is from Atlanta, Georgia.

Recovering drug addict needs parent’s support and trust

Dear Annie: I am a 19-year-old heroin addict striving toward recovery. I go to five Narcotics Anonymous meetings a week, but I have occasional setbacks. After the most recent incident, I left drug paraphernalia in the bathroom. I took full responsibility and was ashamed and disgusted with myself. But the first thing my mother said was, "Did you leave that out on purpose so your sister could find it and start experimenting? She's only 13!"

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.

I was browsing the internet looking at different sites listing historical events of the past 100 years and was surprised to see how much of history had been left off.
