Keeping up through 9
I’m not a big TV watcher.
I do enjoy ball games, of course, and the local news.
I can’t recall the last time I positioned myself in front of the TV and watched an entire show or movie.
Close to Nowhere
I was astounded recently to find I had something in common with the noted author Mark Twain.
Twain was also a Mugwump! “Self-avowed,” according to the Christian Science Monitor.
Honoring our veterans and military families
Recently, millions of Americans took to the polls or mailed in ballots exercising their right to vote. This important principle of our democracy is made possible because of the soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines who put their lives on the line to defend our country. This Veterans Day, we should remember the sacrifices of these brave men and women and honor them for protecting the freedoms and values we cherish.
Please take time to remember our local “heroes” who are serving in war zones around the world.
