  • In light of the events of last week, I intended to address the controversy surrounding Duck Commander founder and Robertson family patriarch, Phil Robertson.

    No, I am not talking about Santa Claus, per se; I am referring to St. Nicholas of Myra.

    Miss Mary Catherine Tinsley, who resided at Alton and was confined to her home most of the time, was presented a television set just a few days before Christmas.
    Mary Catherine was heard to say a short time before that she would give anything for a television, but knew she could never have one for she would not be able to stretch her check and save enough to buy one.
