  • Just a Thought: Ten things you will someday regret

    By Rick Kraft

    What is your biggest regret?  If you could go back and do it all over again, what would you change?

    The word “regret” is defined in Merriam-Webster dictionary as “sorrow aroused by circumstances beyond one’s control of power or repair.” The key elements in this definition are “sorrow” and “beyond one’s control.”

  • Babbling Brooks - Plenty of room for two farmers markets

    This editorial was published by Capital News Service on June 2.

    Allegany and Garrett, Maryland’s two westernmost counties, tend to be lumped together as “Mountain Maryland,” their problems similar, their prospects equally muddled.

    But the two counties’ economic issues — and their approaches to solving them — differ starkly.

    THUMBS UP! PUTTING HIGHLANDS ON MAP
    Even though the Highlands University Vatos failed to earn the big prize in the rugby national championships last week, they can still hold their heads high in light of their fifth-place finish in Chester, Pa. Let’s not forget that the team, organized by former engineering professor Dick Greene, took two previous national championships only recently.

  • Dispatch New Mexico - Looking for the good in New Mexico’s reputation

    It can get downright depressing when comparing New Mexico to other states, at least when it comes to economics, education, crime and other indicators of prosperity and progress.
