Lend a hand to a good cause - April Avison

It's inspiring to read the story in today's paper about young McKenzie Hudgins making an $18,000 donation to A Friend's House. We could learn a lot from this 12-year-old girl.

Best friends are hard to come by - Kathy Jefcoats

I don't have a lot of friends. I know a lot of people but it isn't the same thing. I would say my best friend is my husband but my best girlfriend is Claudia. She lives in Jones County, which is where we met working at the same newspaper about 10 years ago. She is just three years younger than my mom, who was 15 when she married in August 1959 and 16 when I was born in October 1960, but you wouldn't guess her age by her activity and interests.

Republican voters - enough is enough - Rob Felt

"It's absolutely essential that eight weeks from today, on Nov. 2, we make the right choice, because if we make the wrong choice then the danger is that we'll get hit again and we'll be hit in a way that will be devastating from the standpoint of the United States." ?Vice President Dick Cheney during a campaign speech in Iowa on Sept. 7.

Showdown leads to poker demise - Justin Boron

The scene was set for a showdown last Monday at another Texas hold ?em poker tournament. I grimaced across the room at my adversary. She was peering at her cards at another table. But I was aiming to shoot. Before the end of the night I told myself that I would knock her out of the tournament.

Skeletons in the president's closet - Zach Porter

One day it might be nice to run for president. But when I was little I stole a pack of gum from the grocery store. CNN or Fox news might pick up on that question my ability to lead this country. Thus far in my life I've never served in the military and thank God that I will not have to face any scrutiny over my nonexistent record. Not that it matters much, others would still be digging through the trash for anything to smear across the front page. Did I cheat on a test in the 9th grade? Oooohhhhh, got me!
