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?

Column: The definition of love
The telephone rang one Saturday morning several years ago as we were preparing to go to my husband’s great uncle’s funeral. My husband answered. He came downstairs a few minutes later with an interesting look on his face. I glanced up quickly from the sash I was tying on our daughter’s...

WORTHINGTON — Well, Sea Town; many of us did not even know you were sick. And here the paper says you died. September 17. Damn cancer. Carole Towne-Seaton. We will be reading no more of those quips and keen questions on Facebook, no more reminiscences of Carole Growing Up in Worthington....

Column: Biden can't bean Clinton; she can do that herself
WASHINGTON — Maybe Joe Biden can help Hillary Clinton get her groove back. Or, get her groove at all. It’s been sorely missing this cam-paign. Clinton is at her best, or at least does best with voters, when she’s down. See the misty-eyed moment in New Hampshire 2008. Clinton...

Scott Rall: Having a plan and implementing it are two very different things
So this author weighs 230 pounds. The author wants to weigh 200 pounds. I have a plan. Eat less, exercise more and give up my two favorite things — French fries and Dorito nacho chips. I just simply implement the plan and in a few short months, all is well, and the desired result...
