Feeling depressed about the holidays?

As the holiday season approaches, I become apprehensive. The pressure of organizing for the holidays can get overwhelming. At times, I do tend to forget what the holiday season is all about. In addition, the holidays remind me of my family members who have passed. Though it has been years since their departure, it feels as if it was just yesterday. I can honestly say, between the pressure and the loss of my loved ones, I do get depressed. But I find ways to gain the strength to enjoy the holidays with my family and friends and be grateful for ...

Black Friday

Thanksgiving generally marks the beginning of the Christmas shopping season, though commerce in this country is a continually changing animal. Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving when many stores have kicked off big sales and deep discounts, appears to be lessening in importance. Retail experts say there's more of a trend now in discounting that starts before Black Friday and extends well beyond it.

Now the rubber meets the road

November 4 is past, and statewide elections have been decided. As I have discussed in earlier columns, I am always intrigued, and even a little amused, with the amount of rhetoric that is aimed at education during election time. Now that the votes have been cast, there are a lot of important educational issues hanging in the air that will need to be resolved by newly elected office holders. The decisions made will have significant and lasting impact.
