    Where does the apple fall?

    I’ve often thought I’m a lot like my dad. But I don’t want to be. I certainly don’t want to copy his bad habits. I’d prefer to copy his good ones, but I don’t remember them he had any.

    Maybe I’m more like him than I want to admit. But I don’t want to be. I find myself yelling at my kids like an out-of-control idiot.

    Leave judgments to God

    I am so disappointed by the Boy Scouts making headlines to announce that they are now accepting gay youth.

    It never crossed my mind that they had ever turned one away for this reason. If they had done so it would have made much bigger headlines than their vote did. It also puzzled me that their vote left out Scout masters who are still banned. Why two standards?

    Financial trouble

    I understand our country is in trouble financially. What I don’t understand is the fact only a select few Department of Defense civilians will bear the impact of helping.

    Congress needs to investigate the IRS

    On May 10, America learned that the IRS – perhaps the most frightening of all government agencies – has been singling out and targeting conservative groups, including tea party groups. The IRS has waged a three-year war against the tea party, harassing our groups and even auditing our individual members. This abuse of power is unacceptable and unconstitutional, and it must stop.

    Double standard

    We all heard about the horrible tragedy in Newtown, Conn. Twenty precious first graders and six of their teachers and leaders lost their lives at the hands of a mad man with a gun.

    I am the mother of three wonderful grown children. My heart still goes out to those families. I cannot imagine losing a child. Parents are not supposed to have to bury their children.

    Memorial Day needs more recognition

    On Memorial Day, I had the honor to drive a U.S. Army Chaplain and his young son through the annual Memorial Day parade here in Elizabethtown.

    Information on judges readily available

    In response to a letter published May 30, even the most cursory Internet search will show that yes, judges do have to take an oath and yes, they do swear to uphold the constitution of the United States and (if a state judge) the constitution of the state they in which they are serving.
