Dr. Wayne Davis: Pets provide peace during tough times

I've had quite a number of clients through the years who have made the statement that animals are smarter than humans. Well, what do they mean by "smart?” No, dogs probably can't conceive of how to build a car, though how would you really know, you can't discuss the matter with them... hmm.

Judi Holland: The meaning of Thanksgiving

How many of us begin Thanksgiving with a story about the pilgrims? Children love stories and they love being read to. Sharing the story of the first Thanksgiving is a great way to teach children the meaning of the holiday. Read a book together or watch a video that tells the story of the pilgrims and the first Thanksgiving. It is a great way for families to come together and begin to understand the meaning of this holiday.

Kyla Pogline: Parallel America

America is a land of diverse people. We come in all shapes and sizes. We come in different colors, all speak differently, or wear different clothes. The thing that people tend to forget is we are all people! We all breath the same air, and have a heart that beats the same way!

Northwest Colorado Health: Take advantage of help enrolling in health insurance

Finding health insurance can be confusing and complex, but you don’t have to tackle it alone. Free, in-person assistance is available to help you explore your options and find the right plan.

Faith Column: Thankful For Christ’s blood

Without the blood of Jesus, mankind has absolutely no standing with God. It is Christ’s blood that has been offered as a sacrifice for the sins of the world. Through faith in His blood, any person can enter into God’s presence without a sense of shame, guilt, or inferiority. Christ’s blood is redeeming in nature. Wherever sin has gone and brought damage and destruction, Christ’s blood has gone and brought redemption to life and righteousness.

From Pipi's Pasture: A calf named Wind

This is a Thanksgiving story of sorts, a really incredible story about a six-month-old, whitish-gray-brown Simmental cross heifer calf. We don’t usually name calves, but as a baby this little calf loved to run, and as she’d run past me I was reminded of the wind. Thus, the name.

Over a Cup of Coffee: Jaycee’s favorite salad

Our family is starting to make plans for Thanksgiving. Whenever I think about preparing a holiday dinner or even a meal for a big gathering to work cattle, I include a special fruit salad in the menu. It’s our grandson’s favorite salad, and even though it has another name, I call it “Jaycee’s Favorite Salad.” I’ve included it in a previous column, perhaps a year ago, but I can’t resist featuring it again.

Janet Sheridan: The gender roles we play

Growing up in a rural area in the years following World War II, my friends and I quickly absorbed the behaviors deemed appropriate for boys and girls; behaviors we learned from picture books, movies, parents, peers and siblings.
