Real Christmas spirit

On Christmas Eve my daughter and I set out to do our "last minute" errands which entailed going to at least six different stores. When we returned home, I realized that I had lost a very sentimental piece of jewelry that was handed down to me through my family. Needless to say, I was heartsick, and after scouring my house and vehicle, felt that it was gone forever.

Vincent Sheheen deserves a great deal of credit for making the deal happen, as he was the point man, and he says it was the culmination of a years-long dream for him.

Global warming claim incomplete

In your paper's "Noted and passed" feature, December 23, 2013, I discovered that "the planet is heating up at an alarming rate." This surprised me for global temperatures have remained remarkably unchanged on a trend basis for the past 16 years. This phenomenon has received a bit of notice because it shows how complex the climate is and how difficult it is to make predictions. It also shows that there are natural factors e.g., the "Pacific Decadal Oscillation" (PDO) which negatively swamp the effects of greenhouse gasses for perhaps decades. These negative factors get precious little attention because ...
