  • Corrections, Nov. 14

    I've read the arguments behind the amendment - the preservation of a God-given right to harvest game and keep animal herd population numbers in check.

    On Sunday, hundreds of people gathered at Lebanon National Cemetery to honor the military veterans who have served our country in times of war and times of peace. As usual, the crowd was filled with many of those veterans and their families.
    I couldn't help but wonder what those veterans' families know about their service.
