VIEWPOINT: As adults, we can't underestimate the value of playtime

Viewpoint: Nurturing relationships key in caring for memory patients
Communicating with a loved one who has Alzheimer's disease or another similar form of dementia can be a bit of a puzzle sometimes. We find that as the disease progresses, it is increasingly difficult to catch and hold their attention. At times, they seem to simply choose to, at best,...

Deciphering inspiration, intimidation
I'm sure you've all met someone recently who was inspiring to you. You have probably met someone who intimidated you, also. So what's the difference for us when we feel inspired or intimidated, because the source of those feelings could, quite frankly, be the same person for different...

Viewpoint: How much is too much for a DWI?
"What a party," you think as you drive yourself home. Suddenly the night sky is filled with flashing red and blue lights and you worry that you may be in trouble. Did you drink too much to be driving legally? DWI law confuses a lot of people. The name itself is confusing. DWI is...

Resident's Viewpoint: Speak up against NRA's faulty logic
