Commentary: Ready to take pants off for charity
When the subject line of an incoming email reads "Take Your Pants Off For Charity!," I'm going to open that email and see what it's all about. I mean, let's face it, if we can take our pants off in public for a good cause we should go for it. Why not bring back a sophisticated and...

Commentary: Adults playing video games
Long ago I admitted to being behind the curve in technology and a general stick-in-the-mud about some of the crazy stuff whirling around me. My recent views on why in the world NASA is trying to develop a strain of potatoes that would grow on Mars is an example. Well, here’s another....

Commentary: Where our freedom really comes from
The July 6 editorial on Independence by Forum News Service, while praising the principles of the American political experiment, left the readers with a huge misconception of the true nature of American freedom. First, The Forum implied that the American experiment was not based in...

Commentary: People possess ability to maintain under stress
Several years ago, I was gifted a very fun stress ball. It was filled with a glittery liquid and sea creatures, was soft and rubbery to the touch and difficult to put down. No matter how hard it was manipulated, pulled apart, pushed in, squished and stretched to the extreme, it always...

Commentary: Miss those summer days so long ago
I hate to be the "When I was a kid" guy, but here I go. When I was a kid… we played outside all summer with little supervision, made our own fun and we ran in neighborhood packs. Driving around towns these days I don’t see the same activity I recall as a kid. The days of vacant...

Commentary: Child sexual abuse must not be silenced
Child sexual abuse is an often taboo subject that is difficult to talk about. Like all forms of sexual victimization, child sexual abuse is often hidden, can cause shame, self-blame and mostly happens by someone well known to the child. When a child is abused by a caregiver, lines...

Commentary: Will we need seatbelts?
Can you imagine how you will feel just before your first parachute jump from 5,000 feet when your plan is to free fall the first 1,000 feet before you open your chute? That’s exactly how I’ll feel the first time I get into my new self-driving car that has no steering wheel and...

Commentary: Remember sanctions on Russia? Europe hopes not
It seems like an awful long time ago that one of the most prominent threats most Europeans feared was an increasingly aggressive Russia and an unstable Ukraine. To be fair, the concern of terrorist attacks, as well as the refugee crisis was well underway before the turmoil on its...

In one way or another I have been a part of this community my entire life. I was born here, I grew up here and I am very fond of this place and the people in it and I am certain there are others that feel the same as me. I know the destruction of fire; I have experienced first-hand...

Menopause is like adolescence, but less fun
I'm entering a second childhood. That's not nearly as delightful as that might sound. I am discovering that menopause is actually a lot like adolescence -- minus the fun. Each stage of life is marked by major hormonal shifts, which cause skin problems, hair growth and cognitive changes....

Commentary: Robotic companionship
It may sound like a good idea, but I still don’t like it. They’ve created a robot by the name of Nadine that scientists hope may some day be used as a potential assistant or care provider for the elderly. Nadia Thalmann is a visiting professor and director of Singapore’s Nanyang...

Commentary: Brazil has more to worry about than the Rio Olympics and Zika
Brazil may be concerned about the run-up to hosting the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, but it has far more pressing issues to deal with. Last week more than a million Brazilians joined anti-government rallies across the country, challenging impeachment for embattled president...
