Oh Harry, whatever are we all to do with you? And I do mean “we”, because the wayward second son of King Charles III is as much your problem these days as he is ours. If you’ve somehow managed...

 

Dear NP

Dear NP, The community has noticed an uptick in RSV cases. It may be helpful to talk about RSV, what it is, how it is treated and how it affects certain age groups more severely than others. Dear...

 

Truth

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me” – John 14:6 Truth. Not something we desire it to be or can fabricate on our own. It is the necessity of living from and for, yet many...

I don’t suppose you noticed that it was a bit chilly over Christmas? I know I did because, in all my days, I have never experienced temperatures like it. But when I told my mother that it was 50 deg...

 

This Side of the Pond

Since I wrote my column about the architectural prowess of King Charles, a few people have told me that he isn’t quite the person they always thought he was. This didn’t surprise me – on this...

 

Dear NP

Dear NP, My primary care provider has offered me the bivalent COVID booster. Should I get it if I have already had COVID and multiple COVID vaccines? Are there any different side effects than the...

Nestled on the western border of Dorset is a place I’ve only just discovered. Somehow, I’ve gone decades without realizing that a town of almost 5000 people – with all the associated amenities...

 

Existence

“You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power; For You created all things, And by Your will they exist and were created.” (Rev. 4:11) Existence. Life, reality, presence, subsistence, actuality. It is not something that is...

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, I’m finding it harder and harder to understand what has happened to the politics in this country and our county especially. I understand being passionate for a candidate or a cause but I don’t understand the hate for the opposing...

 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, I appreciate Buck Bock’s letter to the editor in last week’s Sundance Times. There are a few factual errors that perhaps need to be addressed. First, when Senator Driskill met with the Crook County Republican Central Committee on...

 

Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor, Recently, Hu Jintao was escorted from The Great Hall of the People during the Chinese Communist Party Congress for, apparently, speaking out against the Party. How sad for the 79-year-old to lose the support of the party he has belonged...

 

This Side of the Pond

I write to you this week as a true American. Yes, I can guess what you're thinking, but it's true. I know I already pledged to the flag and took my tests and learned lots of new things, and I already hung my first flag. You're right, I've been...

Versed

There are roughly over 31,100 verses in the Bible and of those I do have a few favorites or “life verses.” I never set out to make this list, they found me and took off the “rough edges” in my soul. A few of my favorites in no particular...
