Somewhere in France

As I started this column on Veterans Day, I hoped to come up with an appropriate tribute or inspiring message to communicate the gratitude we all have for those who have served our country. I worried before I began that I would not be able to do justice to the many men and women in our community who have served our nation in times of war. The task frankly seemed out of reach and I contemplated changing the subject altogether.

Spring forward one last time

Turning our clocks back away from daylight-saving time really threw my family for a loop. Despite the extra hour of sleep we got that particular night, it's disrupted our sleep pattern. We, frankly, are tired of it and wish the practice would come to an end.

Both parties need to wise up

"Don't blame all the things that have happened to us lately on the Republicans," humorist Will Rogers once said. "They're not smart enough to have thought 'em up." That advice still rings true, especially after our recent midterm elections. Both parties need to wise up.

For Sims family and others, Veterans Day a time of reflection

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. But for some us, it is a deeply personal holiday as we think about the sacrifice of service our loved ones have made.
