  • Father’s lesson delivers message for young boy

    There was a boy who was consistently late coming home from school. One day his parents warned him that he was to be home on time or the next time he was late, he would receive nothing but bread and water at the dinner table.

  • Reason for Christmas often is lost

    Holiday merchandise bursts into color on shelves of every wholesaler and retailer three months in advance of Christmas. Holiday exchanges and sales carry the spirit of gift giving right into the New Year. We are hard pressed to find public reference to why celebrating Christmas is such an all-consuming yearly experience, except that successful marketing throughout the Christmas season is crucial to reaping the lion’s share of business’ yearly profits.

  • Where does Christmas come from? Not a store

    One of my favorite children’s book and Christmas TV special is “How The Grinch Stole Christmas.” I have watched this show faithfully for years.
    We all know the story, the Grinch despises the Who’s down in Whoville with their Christmas celebration. The Grinch hates all the “Noise, Noise, Noise” from the toys and their singing.  Then he came up with the “wonderful” idea to stop Christmas from coming.

  • An hour a week offers a year-long gift to a child

    There are a few of you out there anxious for children in Carroll County still without December gifts. Rest easy. The Christmas Crews (and there are too many of them to name here) are pulling off minor miracles for children and families, and virtually hundreds of kids and households are rightly anticipating a memorable holiday. If you participated in one of the many efforts for Christmas, I thank you.

    But I hope you might consider a January gift for a child.
