  • What does party really cost parents?

    A friend called me recently, a bit excited that an old flame had just moved back into town.

    She was a little nervous about running into him and uncertain how she might react.  This came as quite a surprise to me, as I have always known her to be an ethical person who had never been unfaithful to her husband. I was certain she would handle it appropriately.

  • COYLE'S CORNER
  • Jurors, elected officials are similar

    With the filing deadlines still seven months away, those running for office on both a state and local level must determine one thing - is it my goal to regulate morality?
