WASHINGTON -- What's in a name?
Your lead article in the March 16 issue had to do with a proposed tax for more county recreational projects. Why would County Council even consider this a major need for our county? As a matter of fact, I question the authority of Council to levy a sales tax for recreational purposes in the first place.
• We notice that Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich has, as some used to say with regularity, "done gone to quoting the Bible" in his attempt to win the White House. Gingrich told a recent audience that Proverbs warns that "without vision, people will perish." Time has proven that people often try hard to prove things by using statistics and the Bible, both of which can be manipulated. We'd prefer he stay away from the scriptures when it comes to touting his own candidacy.

I have to admit that, before I became a stay-at-home mom, I had some preconceived ideas of what that job would be like: dinner on the table by 6PM, time spent making crafts and cherished pieces of artwork with the little ones, the house completely organized and just general peace and order all around. Needless to say, I was in for a rude awakening when I actually got the privilege of becoming a stay-at-home mom. I would describe my days now as beautiful chaos. As much as I try to have some semblance of order in the home, it doesn ...

Recent studies show too much screen time can be more harmful to children than many people thought. But how much is too much, and how can parents best reduce it if they need to?
Most people love and appreciate their parents. We don't doubt that. The problem is, parents can't tell this unless you show it by the way you treat them. Sometimes adult children can bring heartache to their parents without realizing what they're doing. We've boiled it down to 5 main ways this happens. 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. As parents age, their physical needs may change but their need for your love never does. Check ...
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. They believe walking away from the marriage is easier than confronting the problems as a team. But if the love is pure and strong, then love can overcome anything. And if you have children, walking away from marriage without trying to make it work can set a bad example for them.

"The Book of Life" has been a project I've been pulling for since I first heard Guillermo del Toro was attached to a Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) project. The colors and beautiful philosophy behind the holiday have always felt like a great setting for storytellers, and del Toro's history of fantastical visuals and his own personal love for the traditions set up all the right ingredients for a potentially amazing animated adventure.
