    Those offended by campaign signs should simply move to a country where voting isn’t allowed.

    Those who grow from seeds are already getting dirt under their nails. Well, technically it’s potting soil, not dirt.

  • COLUMN: Mouth guards — equipment to protect the smile

    It’s easy to take some things for granted until they’re suddenly gone. Have you ever thought about how it would feel if you lost one or two of your front teeth? You’d probably avoid smiling. It would be uncomfortable talking with someone face-to-face. It wouldn’t be easy pronouncing certain words. And how about eating an apple? Until your teeth are gone, you might not miss them.
