Not just business as usual

We often hear politicians and government officials say that running a government, at any level, is the same as running a business. There obviously is some truth in that. Governments have expenses for personnel, equipment and supplies. They receive funds from their clients (taxpayers) to pay for the services the citizens hopefully receive. Government officials have to budget that money and decide how and where to allocate it to be used.

A nice, quiet evening

This weekend I'm going to a bachelorette party. Actually, it's a combined bachelor/bachelorette party where both the bride and groom-to-be and their closest friends will be in attendance. I'm looking forward to it, but there's always a little bit of anxiety before taking part in an event such as that. I'm sure that's partly due to the Hangover movies and partly due to my own experiences in the past with bachelorette parties.

Telling a tragedy in the community

I have said before -- in fact, not that long ago -- that covering tragedies is no fun. This is especially true when the tragedy takes place where you live, or at least close by. When you can say that you either know the people involved, or are friends of their friends, it hits you even harder.

Springing into organization

I recently read an article online about ways to get your wardrobe ready for spring and the one thing it encouraged, above everything else, was organization. It suggested that the time between the end of winter and the beginning of spring was a very important time to evaluate what you need and what you don't when it comes to clothing.

Make love not war

WASHINGTON -- We've heard much about the Republican war on women. Exhaustingly.

12 candidates, 12 ideas

In the 2014 election, the post of State Superintendent of Education is open. The incumbent Mick Zais is not running again. By my count, to date there are 12 people that are announced candidates -- 10 Republicans and two Democrats.

A somber, but important anniversary

Of all the hundreds of stories I have written for the C-I, perhaps the most gratifying and the most tragic was "Death of a Deputy," a five-part series we published in 2009.
