Arbor Day: a 25-year local celebration

With the official start of autumn last week and the holidays soon upon us, my thoughts turn to a truly unique American holiday. No, not Thanksgiving but Arbor Day. Perhaps you may recall celebrating Arbor Day in elementary school, perhaps you remember hearing John Denver singing "Trees for Your Tomorrow" on television or radio on behalf of the National Arbor Day Foundation or perhaps you've seen an article about it in The Chronicle Independent with a photo of people standing around a newly planted tree.

Romney’s already lost the election

Mitt Romney blew his chance at becoming the next president of the United States. Actually, he lost the election back in May, we just didn't know it at the time. No one did. We didn't know until last week when Mother Jones magazine published the contents of a secret video of Romney talking during a private fund-raiser about how he doesn't need to worry about 47 percent of the American people.

Happy calorie counting!

Several months ago, I was on one of my health food kicks and I decided to check out how many calories were in this delicious salad I'd previously eaten at a Zaxby's.

Why we tolerate hate speech

It's not easy to put up with pinheads. But that's a small price to pay for the rich benefits of freedom.

It's time for teachers to speak up

Every year during the week before school starts, I have the privilege to speak to all of our teachers as part of the district's instructional fair. Normally, I use this occasion to thank and recognize these dedicated professionals for all that they have done and continue to do to keep our district moving forward. When I spoke to our teachers on August 14, my main message was that although our district has fallen to the bottom third of our state in terms of funding, the results they are producing are certainly far from the bottom third. (The fact that ...
