This is a reply to the column by Michael Reagan. Now we all know he is the son of late President Ronald Reagan. It’s no surprise that he would champion the Republicans cause and lambast the Democrats. I’m sure this column if written by a son or daughter of a late or still living Democratic P…

“Family is everything!” “Nothing is more important than family.” “Blood is thicker than water.” I’m sure you’ve heard all of these and, more than likely, even uttered them yourself. Families come in all shapes, sizes, numbers, and ages. They are all unique in many ways and similar in many wa…

This summer on a swing through Boston, I took the Fenway Park tour. Along the way, our guide pointed out the retired Red Sox numbers hanging over the grandstands: No. 1 Bobby Doerr, No. 6 Johnny Pesky, No. 8 Yaz and others that included David Ortiz, Pedro Martinez, Jim Rice and Carlton Fisk,…

WASHINGTON — The world’s oldest political party has developed an aversion to discretion. The Democratic Party is manacled to an over-caffeinated base that believes that deft government can deliver parity of status to everyone while micromanaging the economy’s health care sector, which is lar…

High school class reunions are funny things (in more ways than one). We spend 12 years trying our darndest to get out of school and, by extension, away from our classmates. Then, every decade or so, we migrate back together like humpback whales returning to their breeding grounds (hopefully …

There have been a lot of questions asked about the Sheriff’s Office returning nearly $1.3 million to the Board of County Commission on Tuesday. The money is what was left over from our fiscal year 2017-2018 budget.

Well, we’ve survived another Election Day. I am happy to report that, unlike two years ago, there were no signs of panic or major meltdowns in my social media. Not to say that everyone was happy, but no one appeared to be in despair, either.

Well, we’ve done it again. Turning the clocks back like the slaves to an espresso grind, we find ourselves waking to darkness. At that mention, Mr. Harris will quickly remind we are always waking up when it’s dark because we walk each morning. In order to get these steps completed before the…

I have always had a deep admiration for the way in which the human body works. Did you know the small intestine is roughly 23 feet long; one quarter of your bones are in your feet; every organ you have two of, you only need one of to survive; and that there are more than 100,000 miles of blo…
