Clerks Corner: Much appreciation to our community

Her sweet thoughts caused me to ponder the things I am grateful for as well.

Each year when the Christmas season rolls around, my mind wanders back to my childhood days when I was growing up on the ranch at Morapos. Whenever I write about growing up experiences, I marvel at how much I’ve forgotten or perhaps how I have chosen to remember things. My siblings often remember events another way. So here it goes.

Cal Thomas: For secretary of state: John Bolton

President-elect Donald Trump is reportedly considering seriously at least two men for the critical position of secretary of state.

Mike Littwin: Now we know what desperation looks like

Now we know, three weeks too late, what desperation truly looks like. Green candidate Jill Stein has somehow raised millions of dollars for a three-state presidential recount — in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania — that will almost certainly accomplish nothing except to falsely raise hopes among distressed Democrats while annoying the hell out of one Donald Trump.

Prather's Pick: A heartwarming Christmas book for children

Awhile back, this column reviewed “Otis and the Tornado,” a picture book written by Loren Long. Librarians tell me that the books about Otis are popular with children.

From Pipi’s Pasture: Signs of winter

As I sit at the dining room table this morning I can see a little bit of snow on Pipi’s Pasture. There are water puddles, too, in the usual places where we find them following rains that put down measurable precipitation. The storm reminds me of one of those days in March when we’re into calving season. However, the first of December is just around the corner. Time has passed with the blink of an eye.
