A soldier dying while in service to his or her country is something that tugs at the heart strings of nearly everyone who hears it. However, when that soldier is someone you know personally it is even more difficult. It has been a number of years since our community has suffered...

The snow is gone, the temperatures are warming, Easter is over and we are now into the season of white -- wearing white that is. During my adolescent years I quickly learned a few rules about fashion and one of those involved the wearing of white. I am not sure if it was my mother,...
