Max’s View

Fences ***1/2 It seems like the polite thing to say to a young man is, “You’d make a great father.” I don’t think anyone has ever said that to me. And they are right. I can definitely see myself being a horrible father. Some men just aren’t built to be great parents. I could see myself resenting my child because I am wasting my money and the last d...

Passion for Parks: Springtime in the Parks

By Helen Hossley For many of us this time of year, we get a little impatient waiting for spring to arrive.

Rebuilding Our Military

Editor, As a Navy veteran and a strong supporter of our military I commend President Trump for initiating a program to rebuild our military with a defense budget increase of $54 billion, but it should be decreased by $1.3 billion and the $1.3 billion added to the Coast Guard budget within the Department of Homeland Security so it is not cut by $1.3...
