These last few days before Thanksgiving, I have been thinking about Thanksgivings past, those days when my siblings and I were growing up on the ranch.

From Pipi’s Pasture: A note on a napkin

For some years now, our family members have been leaving notes to one another on the dining room table, usually on the placemat where that person usually sits at mealtime. This note-leaving activity became more important after our sons and their families moved away from Craig.

The Bock’s Office: ‘Interstellar’ a great space film undone by Hollywood black hole

By now, announcing that you’re boldly going where no man has gone before barely even warrants a shrug from movie audiences. That doesn’t stop the maker of “Interstellar” from going a step beyond, even if he quickly takes two more steps backward.

Mike Littwin: Obama rides high atop the Republican wave

The strangest thing has happened. As everyone knows, Barack Obama's world turned upside down on Nov. 4. But then came the unexpected: The world kept spinning until, eventually, Obama somehow found himself on top. If history is any guide, Obama may not stay there for long. But in what should be the afterglow of the Republicans' huge midterm victory, the news instead is all about Obama. And some of it, shockingly, is even good.

Al Cashion: School board woes

The School Board meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. Thursday night at Ridgeview Elementary. Once again, I will be in attendance and take my allotted five minutes during the public comment time.

Lance Scranton: Teach your children well

How often do you make a decision based on emotions? “Follow your heart,” the saying goes, and we soon find ourselves in compromising situations, of our own choosing, blaming others, and deflecting responsibility.

“The Silkworm,” written by Robert Galbraith, is the second Cormoran Strike novel. The book, for adults, is published by Mulholland Books, Little, Brown, and Company (2014). Robert Galbraith is a pseudonym for J.K. Rowling, the author of the Harry Potter series. Her first Cormoran novel was “The Cuckoo’s Calling.”

Stephanie Pearce: Enjoy small-town living

When I was little, I dreamed of moving away and living somewhere bigger — moving somewhere with more opportunity. I wanted to move somewhere with more things to do. Then I grew up, and I realized I love where I live and wouldn’t want to raise my family anywhere else.

Mary Jo Brown: Believing compliments

Have you ever noticed how many times a compliment is shrugged off with a remark like, “this old thing,” “do you really think so?” or some other trite remark that depletes the meaning? If you keep sending the compliments away or make light of them, after a while you may stop getting any because it will appear you are ungrateful. It seems that we are afraid to admit that we are worth a compliment, we discount the marvelousness about ourselves.

Over a Cup: Taking some time to bake

With all my appointments and paperwork, I don’t have a lot of time to bake. This week, however, my car is going to be in the shop for repair of its heater (and not a bit too soon), so I’m going to stay home a little more — at least for a few days.
