  • Don't give up on God

    When my youngest daughter was 15 she began an unrelenting campaign to pierce her eyebrow.

    She once handed me seven pages of documented Internet research, complete with a list of "35 Reasons to Say Yes." ("It will not harm any living creature." "I won't wear the eyebrow ring to any formal occasion." "It is better than piercing my tongue.")

    I found it amusing and I admired her persistence - until the Day of the Pringles.

    We were at the market and as she followed me up and down the aisles, she jabbered non-stop about getting her eyebrow pierced.

  • Looking for veterans

    My name is Kyle Nappi. I am 17 years old and I live in Ostrander, Ohio. I was wondering if you could do me a favor.

    I have a big interest in history, specifically World War II. I collect military medals, patches, badges, insignia, field gear and a very unique thing, veterans' autographs. I have a scrapbook collection of autographs from military veterans who served during WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Gulf War and the present war in Iraq.

  • Proud parent of a soldier

    Watching our kids grow up, we always wonder what they will grow up to be. We try to help them, but eventually it will be their own decision. We can only hope and pray that they will make good choices as they get older.

    That brings me to Pfc. Montrell Durham. Montrell was a graduate of Campbellsville High School, where he played football. He liked playing, but as his father, I don't think he had the drive or motivation to be an outstanding player.
