Could we find life on Kepler-22b

If the data from the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is right, there's at least one planet with the potential of harboring life. Perhaps, based on the data, there are thousands upon thousands of such worlds.

Debates as un-reality TV

Karl Rove, a star political strategist, is outraged that Donald Trump, a star real-estate mogul and reality show host, is staging a reality show with real Republican presidential candidates and calling it a debate. Yet, with all due respect, Trump is only exploiting a process that political strategists like Rove already hijacked.

Oden’s successful return would be captivating storyline

Basketball fans knew a lot about former Ohio State center Greg Oden when he made the jump to the NBA in 2007. They knew he was going to be the Portland Trail Blazers' top pick in the draft that year. They knew he was one of the best collegiate players at the time. And they knew he had a chance to be a once-in-a-generation player in the pros. But there was also chatter that he could one day be one of the biggest disappointments in league history.

Remembering one of our ‘Greatest Generation’

As a reporter, there are times when your editor comes to you with a story assignment that -- you can't help it -- makes you cringe. I'm not a golf fan. I don't play, I rarely watch and I certainly had no interest a number of years ago in following a couple of guys in their 80s and their grandsons around a golf course. It just wasn't my thing.

Anatomy of a flip-flop

WASHINGTON -- When the Democratic National Committee circulates an ad attacking Mitt Romney even before the Iowa caucuses -- and long before his presidential nomination is clear -- one can be fairly certain that Romney is considered the greatest threat to a second Obama term.

Pay it forward

Giving thanks. Thankfulness. Gratitude. All words that often come to mind during this bountiful season of thanksgiving. Impeccable timing, wouldn't you say? This time of giving thanks leads us right to the season of giving (gifts); the season of giving and receiving and more receiving for some. So, just as I am offering thanks for the gifts I have in my life -- family and friends, food and football -- among many, I catch a glimpse of several headlines reading "Black Friday shopper collapses while shopping and almost goes unnoticed as other shoppers walk over his body to hunt for bargain ...

A cry for justice

Well, folks, after more than three months of speculation, of debates, of arguing, bickering and online name calling, a grand jury in St. Louis County, Mo., finally came to a conclusion earlier this week. The 12-person panel was presented with and studied all the evidence in the case of the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown in August and concluded there were no indications that Ferguson, Mo., police officer Darren Wilson committed any crime when he shot and killed Brown.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Yes, I know it's only just Thanksgiving but, admit it, many of you will be getting out the holiday lights and wreaths from the attic this weekend or going to buy your Christmas tree! Here at the city, we've had to start early as it takes time for us to deck the halls for December. Our street and electric department crews have been diligently working to decorate for Christmas. Thanks to their efforts, we'll have embellished light poles throughout the city and a lot of lit trees, too.

Cooking Thanksgiving food with a friend

It started accidentally. Some good ideas and memorable moments are like that. They aren't planned. They're born, bringing with them an ability to nudge a way naturally into our lives and become a tradition.
