LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Republicans must stop Obamacare
The Obama Administration is promising new subsidies to cover the losses private insurance companies are facing – the same companies that lobbied for ObamaCare.
NOW HEAR THIS: Hoping for third-time charm
For years, I’ve heard that bad things come in threes. This prediction of 3X doom and gloom was especially prevalent in the world of Naval aviation. While obviously a mere superstition, I have indeed seen mishaps or aircraft accidents happen in sets of three.
NOTES FROM THE JOURNEY: Staying for the credits
The Academy Awards are fast-approaching and, as usual, I haven’t seen most of the nominated movies – partly by choice and partly because some of them haven’t played here.
TISCIONE: Do what is right
“Do what is right” are strong words. They are words that most people long to hear from their leaders. We expect those in whom we’ve placed our trust to lead will do what is right. Popular virtue has been assigned to those who say, “I will do what I think is right!”

NOW HEAR THIS: Getting the kids to school and home again
When I occasionally venture off the “pore farm,” it is not unusual to be approached by someone with a comment or suggestion about my weekly column. These comments are generally gracious, but more important are suggestions for columns about subjects that need addressing.
LETTER TO THE EDITOR: No denying global warming
Mr. Fueilly’s letter disputing the human impact on global weather is not shared by over 95 percent of all global weather scientists.
TISCIONE: So, you expect to be trusted!
Trust is a precious commodity. Once lost it may never be restored. People tend to develop trust in an individual in whom they see character. We’ve seen public figures who were once trusted and are now held at “arm’s length” because of deceptive and weak behavior.
