Funny Papers Again Column | Note to Founding Fathers: ‘You Didn’t See This Coming, Did You?’

It’s 3:17 a.m. early Wednesday morning, nine hours before deadline for this column and I haven’t 1,000 cohesive words anywhere in my head: not a scintilla of theme. This is not often the case when offering this column on a weekly basis (or is...

Window on the World Column | Old Men and Dogs

Guest Column | Volunteerism and Community Spirit Are the Cornerstones of South Monterey County Healthcare

How do you kickstart a quality healthcare system in a small agricultural town during one of the worst economic slumps in American history? Philanthropy and volunteerism, that’s how. King City opened the area’s first full-fledged hospital in 1941, with 22 beds in a single-story building...

Guest Column | Take Steps to Achieve Fitness Resolutions

Statistics show that nearly 3 in 10 Americans actually make New Year’s resolutions in an effort to hold themselves accountable. Such a practice is not new. Some 4,000 years ago, the ancient Babylonias made annual promises to the gods to pay their debts and...

Worthy to Print Column | Poking the Hornet’s Nest

Hello! How was your week? I found that there is way too much reporting about the war. What war? Yeah, that’s my opinion also. I guess if we are not to get into the mess that’s occurring over in Eastern Europe, there’s not much...
