Set aside time to express gratitude
The poet Mary Oliver has, more than once, expressed the thought that there is simply no way for us to adequately express our gratitude for the gifts we are given.
Wife has earned her spot in photo
Maybe — after more than 45 years — my wife can get in the family picture.
Eliminate ‘winner-take-all’ system
To the editor: The framers of the U.S. Constitution created the Electoral College as a result of a compromise for the presidential election process.
