    Parrett praised for focusing on merit

    State Sen. Dennis Parrett is to be commended for his approach of voting on a bill based on its merits, not party lines. Now if more politicians would do likewise we may see some progress in government.

    About 45 years ago, U.S. Sen. John Sherman Cooper of Kentucky took this approach and set an example which many others followed.

    Important to remember still

    Dec. 7, 1941 — the attack on Pearl Harbor — was a day that has remained in infamy. Very few servicemembers who personally remember that day are still among us. The American Legion Auxiliary encourages everyone to do what they can to keep Pearl Harbor a part of our national consciousness.

    Shop with a Cop worthy of support

    I would like to share a story about a wonderful program and my little brother.

    It was in the late 1970s and my brother and I were in grade school. He was a couple years behind me. One day, he came home so excited because he was chosen to go on a shopping trip with the school and the coolest part was that it was going to be with a cop.

    I was so excited for him, but to be honest, I also was a little jealous.

    Be careful where you get your info

    The earth is flat, man can’t fly, computers aren’t for the home, trains can’t go faster than 30 miles an hour, tomatoes are poison. All the above were thought patterns once upon a time that limited human potential, knowledge, progress and enjoyment.

    Protect your pets against winter chill

    Winter, with its bitter wind, rain and snow, is rapidly approaching. Now is the time to check our dog houses, patching and repairing all cracks and leaks. It also is time for new, clean bedding and straw is best. This bedding will need to be replaced often; putting a board along the bottom of the door opening will help keep the bedding inside the house. Also, turning the door away from the wind helps protect your dog from the cold.
