To the moon, Alice! - Michael Davis

It's good to finally see private enterprise entering the long-ended "space race."

Terrorists hit home with killing - Kathy Jefcoats

I've been a reporter for more than 16 years and consider myself hardened to most atrocities. I minored in criminology in college because I knew I wanted to cover cops, courts, crimes, criminal justice, lawyers and judges. In doing so, I have seen the horrible things people to do each other and themselves. I often feel jaded, cynical and skeptical.

Good sound advice for America - Rob Felt

Due to a compilation of personal attacks I've received about two recent columns, I feel I should apologize to anyone who thought I went too far with my suggestions. Here, in the form a public service, are some recommendations that we should all be able to agree upon.

Lack of fear, courage - Bob Paslay

I have mentioned in the past that I have just about every phobia in the world. I am a walking testament to the fact that you can function in a world in which just about everything petrifies you. I don't drive over high bridges, I am afraid of heights, I don't drive on big roads like interstates and I hate to fly.
