Talking about race requires some thought 

I’m half Polish.

Hey, why are you grinning?

All joking aside, this is actually a very serious column that is inspired by the social unrest that has taken place at various protests, most notably the one involving white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia, that led to the death of one counter-protestor and criticism of President Trump for his slowness to focus his condemnation of the events there at those who identified as white nationalists and neo-Nazis.

Watch your kids on family vacation

It’s important to watch your children when you’re on vacation.

Well, duh, you might be thinking. Of course you want to keep them safe and out of harm’s way. But that’s not the kind of watching I’m referring to.

It snuck up on me, too!

Holiday weeks are always sort of weird. None weirder, though, than when they fall on a Tuesday.

I think we can all relate. You come out of a weekend, maybe work a day (unless you were lucky enough to take Monday off) and then you’re off another day. And then you work a few more days and another weekend shows up.

A long time coming snuck up on me!

It’s official, after 15 years of being a stay-at home-mom to our four kids — and taking care of dozens of other munchkins at my in-home daycare over that time — I will now be seen around town in something other than yoga pants and a messy hair bun.

Senate needs to slow way down on health care — or Pender area might pay the price
All of rural America ought to be taking a very close look at what is happening in the Senate with potential passage of a health care reform bill that would undo much of the so-called “Obamacare,” but, by the estimates of the bipartisan Congressional Budget Office, leave more than 22 million Americans uninsured and cause seismic shifts in how government reimbursement programs like Medicare and Medicaid work.
