Your relationship with your spouse is important and needs to be nourished and strengthened daily. The question then becomes, “How do I help my spouse feel loved?” Since each person feels loved and appreciated in different ways, the answer is not straightforward.

You don't have to be a fly on the wall in the homes of millions of Americans to see this common phenomenon. You know, that phenomenon where one spouse says "I didn't say that" only for the other spouse to respond with the predictable "Yes, you did." You don't have to be a fly on the wall because you've probably seen it in your own home enough times. Heck, you've probably seen this kind of conversation in the grocery store, at the park, or at the restaurant you went to last weekend.

But a recent newspaper column by the town's urban forester, Liz Gilland, was a bit troubling in its tone.

Last November, we voted down the referendum that would empower the KCSD to tear down usable and functioning schools and construct replacement along with a new or rehabilitated Camden High football stadium. All it was going to cost was $130 million plus interest. But, fear not, they also asked us to approve a "penny" sales tax to pay for it.
