Chuck Brooks: Good teachers are always working
The unofficial ending weekend to summer hath arrived. The State Fair is on its last legs. Students are with their parents frantically buying school supplies and new clothes for that first day impression. Ahhhh....the start of another school year. There's nothing like it. Am I being...

Pat Rupp: So you want to be on the school board?
Fortunately, this newspaper is void of the weekly comings and goings of the 2016 United States presidential race. No mention of missing e-mails, Twitter rants, and meaningless poll results. Thank you and pass the antacids. The closest items our publication has going in the political...

Chuck Brooks' column: Tips for a happy life
You know, 26 years ago, I delivered the first of what would be, now, three graduation speeches. The first of them happened at a time when our stadium was under construction, and so, rather than move the ceremony inside, the decision was made for whatever reason to push the event over...

Guest column: Father Jarvis prepares to say good bye
I think I know how moms and dads feel as they tuck a kid into bed. Heavenly! Lately, I’ve been trying to take as many opportunities to visit my mom in the final leg of her journey with Alzheimers. I especially like the ritual of tucking my mom into bed at night. A ritual...

Andrea Langworthy's column: The eye of the beholder
My husband and I are on two different wave lengths when it comes to stuff. He likes to keep it and I just want to get rid of it. I’m not talking about first edition books or a pristine baseball card from Mickey Mantle’s rookie year. There’s nothing of value in our house but...

Rep. John Kline: Legislation could help avoid huge student loan debts
As a father of two, and grandfather of four, I understand the importance families place on saving for our children’s education. I remember my parents were so intent on me getting an education and going to college. To help see this dream realized, I worked a paper route and bagged...

Andrea Langworthy's column: Zoom!
Waiting has never been a strength of mine. I was one of those children who would sneak up to the attic and go through every box and bin looking for hidden Christmas presents. And pregnancy, those extra-long months of waiting to find out if the baby I was carrying was healthy,...

Andrea Langworthy's column: Chicken's number one fan
My husband is fixing dinner as I write. Chicken, baked potato, frozen mixed vegetables. A favorite meal of his. His idea of dinner is pretty simple: chicken, chicken and more chicken. Out of the 100-plus days we spent in a transitional care center recently, chicken was on the...

Andrea Langworthy: Home away from home
A few months ago, I learned about a contest sponsored by a lending institution. Entrants had been asked to answer the question, “What makes a place feel like a home?” I didn’t enter the competition but the topic got me thinking about my own place. What, exactly, makes...

Student voices: The benefits of working
When I was in eighth grade, I decided I wanted to join the work force. I thought it’d be fun to support myself, to be mature and capable of self-sufficiency. To a 14-year-old, supporting oneself means having the ability to buy gum, magazines, and music on iTunes — the necessities...

Nathan Hansen's column: On the road to robot rule
Science fiction is full of terrifying stories about artificial intelligence gone wrong. There are movies about apes that gain intelligence and decide they want more than a fistful of bananas or robots that turn on their creators. And you just know Rosie was up to something on...
