Good morning: The 2009 movie “Hachi” recounts the true story of a dog who accompanied his college professor master to the train station each morning and then returned each afternoon at 3 p.m. to welcome him home. However, one day the professor suddenly died at school and so did not get off the train to…

  Good morning, “Just be patient…There will be the Thanksgiving Day feast with the entire extended family gathered around the table. You can look forward to greeting Christmas guests with hugs and sampling favorite cookie recipes in the kitchen with one another…But just not this year.” I’ve heard statements like this several times lately on…

Good morning, Who left the towel on the bathroom floor? Someone forgot to send in the application. Who left the garage door open? We all know the usual answer: “Not me!” We don’t like to assume blame for something wrong or something that didn’t work out quite the way we intended it to. After a…

Good morning, Besides the election the most popular topic of conversation this week has been the awesome November weather. It’s been wonderful to step outside without grabbing a jacket, take walks and soak up summer-like sunshine without mosquitoes spoiling the moment.

Good evening: Coming home from a road trip last week my wife and I stopped at Celery Bog, a nature preserve on the outskirts of West Lafayette, Indiana. We arrived to find that the visitors center was closed due to COVID restrictions. We were checking a trail map when a man came from the building…

Good morning: Did you check your email first thing this morning, Facebook, the newsfeed you subscribe to? What happens thousands of miles away is instantly broadcast everywhere. What the president or Congress or the CDC says becomes common knowledge online within minutes. Our problem is not a lack of information, but the question of whom…

Good morning: In our current atmosphere of protests, riots, shootings, and explosive anger toward anyone who has a different opinion, one thing is conspicuously absent—forgiveness.

Good morning: What happens when you see a sign: “Road closed”? Do you follow the detour or drive around the barricade because “No one is going to tell me I can’t use this road”? Tell a little one, “Don’t touch,” and what may he likely do when you turn your back? Take your shoes off,…
