Our series on children continues this week with ways to teach respect and cultivate a language of love with your child. A respectful child can mean many things and can be a vague and subjective notion.

Teaching respect can be a balancing act, and for many parents, they are either too permissive or demand too much.

Rogers has been gone since 1935, of course, lost in an Alaska plane crash along with Wiley Post, but I couldn’t help but wonder what old Will would think about what’s going on in the country right now.

With President Trump's proposed budget taking a chunk out of entitlement funding, forward-thinking community leaders will be looking at ways they can prop up key services for individuals in need. Without a strong local base and reliable resources, many agencies and entities will fall through the cracks - and with them, the people they purport to serve.

Any civil libertarians who voted for Donald Trump last November must be appalled now by his heavy-handed tactics - especially as it pertains to his unfounded claims of widespread voter fraud, and what he wants to do about it.

State Question 640, approved by voters 25 years ago, makes it so that it takes three-fourths approval of the Legislature to pass a tax increase. Otherwise, a measure would have to go before voters in a statewide election.

As a parent, one of the hardest things is to watch your child be the victim of bullying. Bullying is very serious, and should be treated with concern and professionalism. The old adage, oh they are just being kids, will lead to trauma and permanent scars.

History contains the ultimate “what if” when you are first learning it — and, as you continue to learn it, since history is being added to every second of every hour of every day.

A gambler can only bet on a losing horse so many times before he throws in the towel. So it's time for the Democratic Party to cut its losses and put Nancy Pelosi out to pasture.
