Today's Opinions

  • First 5K with daughter is a special race for Dad

     Each day you can get up, and make a difference in your life.

  • Words of advice for this year’s graduates

     Four years and one month ago I graduated from college. Four years before that, I graduated from high school.

  • Dedicating our spiritual gifts to god

     Perhaps the most talented church the apostle Paul started was in Corinth. This church had the most talented preachers and most enlightened teachers. Like Paul, we would expect a church like this to succeed, but the Corinthians split their church into factions, with the preachers and teachers grabbing their followers. 

  • You are blessed: act like it

     A billion children went to sleep hungry last night. People in the world lost family members yesterday whom they adored. There are people in our own community dying of cancer and AIDS. I just read about a little girl who was born without a face – just two eyes and a mouth. And we worry about traffic being heavy on the way to work.

  • Letters to the editor

     Co-worker impressed with Voegele’s campaign

  • Start your engines

     “I can’t for the life of me understand what is so great about this Indianapolis 500 stuff,” said one housewife to another. “They make a big hero out of the driver who is the first one to travel 500 miles by driving continuously in circles.” 

  • Learning does not have to be tough

     It’s one thing to resist getting the hang of a smart phone. It’s quite another to allow fear of learning, or more precisely fear that you can’t learn, to get in the way of career success. 

  • Practice kindness

    The practice of kindness encompasses a range of small acts and habits that we know as old-fashioned good manners – saying “please” and “thank you,” waiting your turn, being on time, lending a helping hand, or cheering someone up with a smile. It applies not just to your relationships with other people. It extends to things, animals, plants and the earth.

    This practice also means being generous with your presence, your time and your money. Give freely without expecting anything in return. Just do it. Kindness is not a quid pro quo endeavor.
