Opinions

It’s one of the nastiest habits I’ve ever known.  I don’t understand the glamorization around it.  To me there is nothing more disgusting that a person can do to their body. Without question, it’s probably one of the unhealthiest things in life.  If you haven’t guessed it yet, I’m referring to...
It’s time to save yourself a seat at the theater for Guardians of the Galaxy. Again. Everyone’s favorite sometimes superheroes are back in an even edgier volume two. This time around the guardians are saving the galaxy from a monstrous conquer, while also confronting fears closer to home and their...
That may be so. I think we’ve had some pioneers in  the family. But were they truly  primogenitors?   Somehow, that just doesn’t sound right.   Anyway, we keep occasionally practicing at the country living thing.    Last year we lived on a farm where a feral cat kept entering the basement through a...
Ask people who are close to me and they will tell you that I’m not real crazy about social media, especially Facebook. I actually have a real disdain for it all.   I really don’t see the lure of posting the personal junk that many people do on a routine basis. At times, the postings are harmful,...
We wait all winter long for a sign of spring.  Then the first robin is spotted.  Then a dandelion.  Coats become lighter and sometimes even optional.  It truly is springtime.   It’s a time of renewal.  People spring clean.  Lawns are raked.  Gardens are tilled. Spring offers a promise of warm days...
It was a nice day in March, 2005. I remember, because that was the last time I saw my beautiful red 1996 Ford Ranger pickup truck.We were bailing up Highway 218 south of Austin, heading to Winona for a fun day with friends. I had my head in the clouds at 60 miles an hour. Couldn’t stop thinking...
It’s so easy to fall away from spirituality, from pausing to consider the big picture and give thanks for all our blessings. You just go along with the fast-paced madness, working and frowning and worrying, hardly breathing,  tense, cynical, slowly dying on the vine. It’s easy to return when you...
For years it was impaired driving that took an ugly toll on our roadways. And while drunk driving still continues to be a problem, there is a new issue that has emerged that may be just as dangerous if not worse. It’s texting while driving, or distracted driving. Last week’s tragedy that killed 13...
Go, Go, Power Rangers!          If you didn’t chant that along in your head, you’re either lying or you aren’t the intended audience for this latest addition to the Power Rangers Franchise.          This grittier reboot of the classic TV show, directed by Dean Israelite, gives us the origin of the...
An older couple stopped by the DCI last week, and, after more than a little prodding by his wife, the husband – let’s call him Ole; he wouldn’t give us his real name – was still too stoic to tell us about the big something that was clearly on his mind. So the wife, Lena – don’t use her real name...
