Guest column: Domestic Violence is a topic that needs awareness

Friday, October 18, 2013

By TERESA MEANS Guest Columnist As many of you know who I am in the county. What you may not know is where I come from; you don’t truly know me, as a person. I have a purple ribbon tattoo on my right hand. When someone sees it they say, “oh is that cancer awareness:” I say... »

Never miss an opportunity to care

I know it has been a few weeks since I have written a column and to be honest had it not been for another computer failure I probably would not have had time to write one this week. But while I wait for it to come back up (I hope) I wanted to get... »

I’m just saying:  Who has the reins on your life?

It is hard to believe that summer is gone, at least on the calendar. Seems like only yesterday I put my jacket away and now I’m getting it ready for the upcoming season. Time really flies, especially when you do this job. But the weather this season has been quite a surprise. A mild winter... »

I’m just saying:  Here comes the curve again

It never fails that just when I think I can figure things out, someone throws me the proverbial curve. If you played baseball with me, or saw me play (back in the day) then you know that I may hit it, but rather weakly. In other words, it caught me by surprise. If you ever want... »

I’m just saying:  Feelings and opinions, everyone has them

I know that when it comes to feelings and emotions we not only have them, we also believe ours to be the ones that need to be addressed. That is just human nature. Self-preservation, looking out for yourself, etc., etc. I understand all of that and I have been in positions where I had to... »

I’m just saying:  Laughter really IS good medicine

There are two things in life that make me happy. Well, there’s actually more than that. But for the sake of this column, let me concentrate on two of them. I heard just today that Twinkies are coming back. They will be available soon and that makes a fat man like me happy. Not that I was... »

I’m just saying:  I told you ‘Big Brother’ was watching

Have you ever wondered what happened to the good old days of just living your life, working everyday and the government not interfering at every turn? I mean those days were sweet. Neighbors knew each other, even helped raised each others kids. Small towns were a haven for relaxing and just being as close... »
