Have you ever thought …

Plenty of thoughts come to mind when thinking of the Covington Square: a variety of shopping; good places to eat or meet for a drink; ice cream cones, fresh-banked cinnamon rolls or a gift basket of olive oil.

Have You Ever Thought …

I am writing the opening words for this column as I wait to go to the Square to join in our community wide July 4th celebration. It is great to be an American. It is also a great day to recommit ourselves to using the freedoms we inherited in ways that will make our community and world a better place for those who will follow us. The real value of the gift of freedom is the fruit that comes from those who use it wisely.

Have you ever thought …

A community is a composite of the efforts of many people who came before us. We are indebted to those who laid the foundations of who we are as a community. Like the old parable of the seeing a turtle on top of a fence post, you know it didn't get there on it's on.

Rowe: The sights and sounds of summer, Part 2

In my previous column I started a series on something that both myself, and you as readers, I'm sure, are very passionate about - music. Music is something that touches people in different and sometimes very profound ways. My earliest memories are connected to music, and throughout the years it has become as much a part of me as the very air I breathe.

Have you ever thought ...

Who we are is a product of the people who shape and form our personalities long before we are fully aware of our dependence of them. No one is more important than the members of our family. Of that family, in most cases, our parents are the ones who have the most influence upon us.

Have you ever thought …

Most of us can deal with a loved one or ourselves being physically ill much better than we can with deal with mental illness. Perhaps it is the stigma that some would attach to mental illness. Perhaps because it is much more difficult to define or to understand for most of us. And one out of every six Americans will suffer from some form of mental illness in a given year. The challenge for all ages is real.
