  • OUT TO PASTOR: Grandfathers vs. Father Christmas

    By JAMES L. SNYDER

    During this time of the year, a certain controversy raises its ugly red-scarfed head. Year after year, this hullabaloo continues and nobody has taken the initiative to deal with this holiday wrangling. That is, until now.
    Normally, I am a mild-mannered person and just to be on the safe side, I stay out of telephone booths.
    As a great philosopher once said, “I’ve stands all I can stand and I can’t stands no more.”

  • The road to recovery

    By TRACY RENEE LEE

    When a family experiences a death, almost every member of the household mourns, including the family dog. There are positive and proven ways that help one cope and recover from the loneliness and depression experienced with the death of a loved one.
    It is important to keep in mind, however, that not everyone mourns or recovers in the exact same way.
    Exercise is good for the heart, body and soul. A 20 to 40 minute aerobic activity results in improvement in the survivor’s state of mind.

  • OUT TO PASTOR: You can keep your snow

    By JAMES L. SNYDER

    Memory is a very wonderful thing, at times. It seems the older I get the more I remember things that never happened. I do not know how that takes place, but I guess it is just old age creeping up on me. With me, old age has ceased creeping and has started a fast sprint to some finish line. I just wish it would slow down just a wee bit.

  • Laws prohibit co-mingling of human remains

    By TRACY RENEE LEE

    Ground burial has long been the traditional choice for interment in America.
    In recent years, however, cremation has become a viable choice among the adventurous baby boomers.
    As they prepare for their final expenses, many questions arise.  
    One question, in particular, is asked more often than any other,  “Can my pet be cremated with me?”
    It is illegal to co-mingle human cremains. In other words, two humans may not be cremated in the same chamber, at the same time.
