The Rebel’s Manifesto

I throw my hands in the air, and do a short, ridiculous dance. "It's Friday!" I exclaim, and I walk out of the office and into my sanctuary. I leave the lights off and sit at my desk, black coffee steaming in front of me.

The importance of SLEEP

Let's admit it - we all dread the week that just passed. The "springing forward" is always harder than the "falling back." Regardless of the promise of more daylight and spring being right around the corner, Daylight Savings Time is like a mild case of jet lag - which is why my 3-, almost 4-year-old is not going to sleep until after 9 p.m. It usually takes my family at least a week to adjust and we are all a little cranky about it.

What is St. Patrick’s Day all about?

This coming Tuesday, March 17ith, is St. Patrick's Day. In the middle of the start of March Madness and usually within days of Easter, there comes this day, when most everyone seems to be Irish. Even though none of my names are Irish but rather either from England or Scotland, come this Tuesday, I am Irish for the day. And it is not for the fact that I write this column for a paper whose publisher is pure Irish, Pat Cavanaugh. We can learn so much from at least being Irish for one day.

March 6 - Welcome to your weekend

Recently, Trekkies around the world mourned the loss of the beloved Leonard Nimoy. Not only was he a science fiction icon, he was a poet, director, photographer, singer and science lover.

Warning: Valentine is right around the corner

How did we remember all these holidays before we had our "smart" phones to automatically list them for us? Of course we would remember Christmas and the Fourth of July, but there seems to be a special day almost every week. The other day my calendar showed it was Ground Hog Day. Now who made that a holiday? Or which Ground Hog is right?

Bill protecting minors gaining support

This week, the House passed the 2015 supplementary budget, but still has to work on the 2016 budget. As I said before, revenues were up by $276 million, and we directed most of that increase to education, as well as Medicaid growth and mandatory compliance with Obamacare. The vote was bipartisan and unanimous.
