I’m just saying:  Being a father is an honor

Once again Father’s Day is fast approaching. In fact it is this Sunday and except for the occasional tool or tie commercial I have seen on television lately, it would sneak by practically unnoticed. Why is that you ask? Basically because it seems that society, outside the small-town atmosphere does not seem to respect the importance... »

I’m just saying:  Six years and more to go

As I sat in my office on Monday afternoon preparing to put together another issue of the Times on Tuesday morning, I was slapped with the realization that another anniversary had crept upon me.

I’m just saying:  The way you fight a battle you may not win shows just how much of a winner you truly are

It has been a rough few weeks. Changes at work, trying to keep up with everything, trying to stay on top of the situations that rise everyday can all be time consuming and worrisome. But last Wednesday I, and many people around me, were reminded that no matter how hectic life is there are more... »

I’m just saying . . .  Though you miss them,  let the eagles soar

I don’t know about you, but if you were at the Reading Celebration’s opening ceremony last Saturday then you saw a great performance. I would dare say, and I’m not trying to hurt anyone’s feelings, but it appeared to be the best so far. I mean all the talent that was displayed. Can you imagine... »

I’m just saying . . .  Love is more than being there

Valentine’s Day. The day of love. It is also the perfect day to propose or even get married. It is a day set aside for love. And aside from my two loves, who will be getting something special this year (yes the same as last year, but it comes from the heart), I also love the... »

I’m just saying . . .  Take a break, but don’t give up

For the past couple of months you may have noticed that I have not written as many columns as I usually do. Some may chalk that up to me being too lazy to write one. Others may believe that I have given it up for whatever reason. While others may figure that I have... »

I’m just saying . . .  What’s your resolution?

It has been a little while since I have written a column before production day. This one is no exception. Due to the early printing deadlines, we actually had our production day for this issue last Friday. So if we missed something or you don’t see a particular item, give us a chance. It may... »

I’m just saying . . .  Do we really ‘know’ our ‘friends’?

Stress and outside forces can sometimes push us into things we never wanted to do to begin with. Stress levels for each person differs and at this time of year they run high as the holidays come closer. But there are some stressful things that the holidays have nothing to do with. Relationships are always... »

I’m just saying . . .  We need to be proactive, but fair

I want to make this week’s column short and sweet. I want to thank all of you who either were there to help or prayed for my daughter an I last week after we had a little accident in front of Bruen’s Restaurant. We were both checked out and were a little sore, but are... »
