My Dad (we called him Pap) did a lot of great things, but maybe the best thing he ever did for me was encourage me to do things and learn things. He never once said, “Well, that’s a crazy idea,” or “Did they get you mixed up at the hospital,” or “You’ll never be able […]

Being President of the United States seems to me to be a daunting task and a responsibility of enormous proportion . . . even on a good day. We owe a debt of great gratitude to those who are willing to serve our country in that capacity – who have left their mark on the […]
A new year is on the horizon. It stretches out before us like an endless highway, beckoning us on an exciting journey. It is a new beginning – a time for reflection. I’ve never been a big believer in New Year’s resolutions as such. Sometimes they’re quickly made and just as quickly broken. But, I […]
