  • Smells like a new year

    Mention the smells of Christmas and most people have little trouble ticking off their favorites: The perfume of evergreen, the citrusy smell of fruit in the Christmas stockings, cinnamon spice tea brewing, the aroma of gingerbread cookies and pumpkin bread baking.

    Not so with the New Year.

  • Christmas greetings offer perspective for the new year

    New Year’s resolutions can be elusive. Deciding what you want to change about yourself requires more insight and personal examination than most of us are willing to undergo.

    But this year, I just may have found a reservoir of ideas. And they came in the mail.

    Before discarding your collection of Christmas cards, give them another examination. Seriously consider the printed messages. When you truly embrace these greetings from family, friends and associates, you’ll discover a rich supply of new priorities for the new year.

    ISSUE: Phil Robertson and A&E
    OUR VIEW: Offensive remark, offensive reaction
    When “Duck Dynasty” patriarch Phil Robertson expressed his views on a variety of topics that included statements regarding homosexuality, executives of the A&E network acted surprised. It was as if they had no idea that Robertson felt the way he did.
