• Rethinking turkey traditions

    Today is a national day of giving thanks.

    We bestow thanks upon our families, friends, loved ones, troops, leaders and any number of people and entities. We express thanks for the roofs over our heads, the jobs for which we toil, the clothes on our backs and the food on our table.

    So I witnessed the first snow of the season in downtown Elizabethtown a couple of weeks ago.
