  As shoppers rush home with their treasures, stockings are hung by the chimney with care, and classic Christmas movies play on repeat, these final few weeks before Dec. 25 seem to hold a deeper meaning than past years. We’ve been through a lot in 2020, to say the least. Whether we agree or not on...

  One of the many reasons why I love Christmas is how people treat each other during the season. There are more smiles and greetings shared, patience and grace are extended a little faster than usual, and there’s an overall sense of festive joy. Though this year has not been easy, I’ve already...

Election Day is almost here, and it’s just about time to find out if President Trump will continue serving for four more years, or if Joe Biden becomes the 46th President of the United States.

This week, Community Corner is going to serve as a break from the political talk, hate, and negativity being thrown at us. Politics, step aside. It’s time to talk about happy things and bring some joy into our lives. Everyone, meet Brinkley: Brinkley is an Aussiedoodle (Australian Shepherd/Poodle...

“Why does kindness seem revolutionary? When did we let hate get so ordinary?” If any song could best describe 2020 and how we should respond, it’s “Revolutionary” by Josh Wilson. Taking a look around, the cultural norm has settled into a routine of vehemently disagreeing with and attacking one...
