Veterans Day is a day to honor those individuals who have fought to maintain the freedoms we have in the United States of America. It has never been a very significant holiday, especially compared to rival holidays like Thanksgiving or Christmas. For most people it may not be more than a day off work or an opportunity to view a parade.

After the vote: more sanity, please

You might think that Comedy Central stars Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert, founding fathers of "fake news" and "truthiness," chose a controversy-free theme in staging their "Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear" on the Washington Mall. After all, who could be opposed to sanity?

Long may you run, Bulldogs

Take 10 unassuming athletes, add an untiring and resolute coach, and you have the ingredients of one spirited and determined boys cross country team at Camden High School. For the first time in the school's history, the Region 6-AAA trophy will take up residence in her trophy case. Head Coach Jerry Stokes shares in the team's victory with his accolade of conference coach of the year. Coach Stokes trains, you could say, with old school ideology.

Love for learning should be lifelong passion

The most important thing a high school or college student can do, if they haven't already, is find a focus, in terms of their career. Preferably, this focus is a passion of theirs.

Sweet Home Oklahoma

I have always heard that home is where the heart is -- not always worded in that exact way, but it is definitely what was meant.

Why loyalty matters

When I think back on the days of my youth, that time when I had the privilege of traveling on the NASCAR circuit, it would be hard to pick a lesson learned that was more important than another.
