  • Saluting those incredible canine heroes

    I could have sworn my dog, Max, quietly napping on my left side, perked up when Diane Sawyer introduced the story about the Navy SEAL dogs on the evening news.

    At least I thought he did.

    My miniature Schnauzers are about as close to being Navy SEAL dogs as I am to being a Navy SEAL. But we three enjoyed the story anyway.

  • Competitive bowling could lead to lifelong activity

    THE ISSUE: High school bowling
    OUR VIEW:
    Game is for a lifetime

    The recent news that bowling will become a varsity sport at some local high schools is good news for student-athletes.
