Where We Live

Saturday, July 30, 2011

Well here we are on the brink and if any of us are wondering how we arrived at this precipice of financial ruin, we might want to look in the mirror and then at our voting record. If you are one of the 80 percent of this country's voting population that never wanted to be bothered with your obligation to this nation to elect responsible and ethical leaders, then let me be the first to congratulate you for helping us arrive at this point.

A few years ago when we were discussing the creation of a new TIMES NEWS website, the topic of blogs came up. I leaned over to the person next to me and whispered, "What the heck is a blog?"

Although it was explained to me, it seemed a little self-indulgent and unnecessary. I just didn't see the point.

As a reporter, I come into contact with a lot of people. Most of the people are good people. I can't think of any, though, who impressed me as much as Hunter Wolfe did.

I only met Hunter this past March. Sad to say, I met him only one more time after that.

Hunter was only 12-years-old and on Thursday, July 7, he passed away. He lost a valiant battle he fought against cancer.

In April, Hunter, the son of Kimberly Sargeant and Tony Wolfe, both of Jim Thorpe, was one of the recipients of the annual "Courage Awards" of the local chapter of the American Cancer Society.

On Monday, our nation will celebrate the 235th anniversary of the day we declared our independence.

If it wasn't for those brave men, who like many of our soldiers today, believed that our freedom was worth standing up and fighting for, who knows where we would be now.

I love to fly! But I hate boarding a plane.

When I say this to people, they look at me a little strange. I guess I can't blame them.

My love with flying started a long time ago.

When growing up in the 1960s in South Dakota, seeing a silver jet liner so high in the sky flying over our farm was a sight I never got tired of seeing.

I remember one especially hot and windy summer day when I was about 10 years old. I decided I would try to fly.

I found one of my mom's old bed sheets and carefully crawled to the top of the largest haystack in the pasture.

A lot has been written about Gov. Tom Corbett's first budget in which he makes big cuts in funding, mostly to programs that directly affects the working public. His budget proposal is in response to a projected multibillion dollar state budget deficit come July 1.

I live right next door to the president. OK, well maybe not right next door, but I do live about 10 minutes away when the red line isn't delayed.

You see, I go to school in our nation's capital. Washington, D.C. is not only the home of President Obama, the famous cherry blossoms and the National Mall but also nearly 7,000 American University undergraduate students, including me.

The recent rash of dog attacks has led me to this conclusion.

The owners of dangerous dogs that attack people need to be heavily fined, and in a hurry.

Specifically those dog owners who allow their vicious animals to run loose that aren't licensed or leashed.

Such measures are necessary in light of a series of dog attacks that have occurred in the area in recent months.

In fact, several articles have appeared in our publication about incidents where dogs have attacked humans, chickens, and other dogs.

This past week was another primary election and while it rained on some people's aspirations the sun shone for others through the raindrops. Congratulations to all the primary winners and for those that are still contesting seats, good luck in the fall. While most people believe the Presidential or gubernatorial elections, the elections that select our local officials are the most important of all in my opinion.
