Bits and pieces from the cluttered mind of the sports editor: Stoesz getting it done for MLABig high school football game on Friday: 2-1 Hills-Beaver Creek at 3-0 Mountain Lake Area. It’s coming one week after MLA senior quarterback Levi Stoesz had a remarkable performance in the...

The Disheveled Theologian: Home sweet home
It’s hard to write when your eyes are swimming with tears. The letters on the keyboard get blurry and I must rely on the muscle memory of my fingers. Oh, how I remember the repetitions in typing class when I was in 10th grade. I can still hear the teacher’s voice chanting: jkl;...

Column: Bill-gate, again
WASHINGTON -- But of course Bill Clinton wants his wife to become president of the United States and make history as the nation's first female commander in chief. Why, he'd be pleased as punch and proud as proud can be. Plus, it would be tons of fun to return to the White House as...

Column: A toxic meeting on the tarmac

Column: The parent trap
WASHINGTON — Somehow, it’s always the parents’ fault. We are too lax, except when we are too helicoptery. We coddle the kids too much, except when we drive them into neurotic overachievement. We are enablers. No, we are Tiger Moms. The societal urge to blame is matched only...

Column: These billboards have eyes
JIM HIGHTOWER OtherWords AUSTIN, Texas — OK people, we need to discuss billboards. Yes, we really must. At best, these giant corporate placards are problematic — they loom garishly over us, clutter our landscapes, and intrude into our communities with no respect for local aesthetics...

Column: Does ‘pro-life’ extend to fighting Zika?
WASHINGTON — Rep. Vern Buchanan, a Florida Republican, has called himself “pro-life” since he came to Congress a decade ago. This month, he’s proving it. Buchanan last week announced his support for President Obama’s request for $1.9 billion to fight the Zika virus — a...

Column: Making a good first impression
CLEVELAND — Not to diminish the importance of the first Republican debate, but it felt like the first in a political survivor series. The question wasn’t so much who won the prime-time skirmish but who eliminated himself to make room for Carly Fiorina — the hands-down winner...
