John Pogline: No means no

It seems that there are still people out there that still do not know what no means. Let me reiterate: The majority of voters vote not to allow the growth and sales of recreational pot. This means no.

The nation is in an uproar. The nation is in crisis. In the news biz, this is what we call a standing headline. You don’t have to mark your calendar. Every day that’s a Trump day is a bad day for America.

The Bock’s Office: ‘A Dog’s Purpose’ a sweet but insipid pet picture

Rarely do we actually get in the head of our movie canines, and as lovable as Old Yeller, Benji and Air Bud were, viewers didn’t always know what made them tick. But, as “A Dog’s Purpose” shows, just seeing the world through their eyes doesn’t intrinsically answer that question.

Prather’s Pick: A book with fascinating illustrations

This week’s featured book is “A Child of Books,” a picture book for children. However, as with so many children’s books these days, the story line and artwork will be appreciated by adults, too. Best of all, children and adults can share the reading experience of the book.

Lance Scranton: Students aren’t learning!

Each week begins with students listing events and news from the past week that is worth discussing in class. Student-driven news and event selection might be a little frightening for some teachers, especially with teenagers, but solid parameters make the process very dependable and enlightening. Students are interested in the world around them and are very engaged, but it’s the depth of their engagement that requires a teacher’s touch.

U.S. Rep. Scott Tipton: How replacing Obamacare will work

Reconciliation will not impact health insurance contracts for 2017

Over the past few weeks, my team and I have been working to address concerns and answer questions about the future of health care across the United States. We have heard from individuals and families who have had a broad range of experiences since Obamacare went into effect, but the bottom line is that this law hasn’t made health care affordable or accessible for all Americans.

Faith Column: Ask rather than assume how you can help

It has always intrigued me that Jesus, when encountering someone in need, in response to their “cry” for help would consistently ask “What do you want me to do for you?”

From Pipi's Pasture: Making do

When I was a kid growing up on the ranch, our family learned to “make do.” It might have been using a jar-sealing rubber — a circular piece of rubber used to seal canning jars — to hold a sole on a pair of everyday shoes. Or it might have been piling thick telephone books — the Denver kind — big storage cans or anything else we could find on top of a stool in order to reach the ceiling when we painted or cleaned.

The Bock’s Office: ‘La La Land’ a lovely, laudable film we’ve already seen before

This year, a city that prides itself on always having the right look, the right sound and most importantly the right feel finally gets its due after decades of going unacknowledged. And, if you believe that buildup, you’ll love everything about “La La Land.”

Janet Sheridan: Go out of bounds

I should quit thumbing through the magazines in doctors’ waiting rooms. The out-of-date publications harbor germs from sneezing, sick people and tempt me to read stuff I’d ignore if I weren’t trying to distract myself from the reason I’m in a doctor’s office.
