Put Christ back in holidays, hearts

A little time has passed since Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's, which means we're far enough removed from the festivities that I can pen this opinion piece without letting those warm and fuzzy "holiday feelings" bias my sentiment. It has become clear to me that Americans are doing all they can to take God out of the holiday season, and it's disturbing.

A little homework never hurt anyone

Q: My son will be starting sixth grade at a new public charter school this year. This school uses a "classic" curriculum that does not draw from pop culture and sets high academic standards. The kids wear uniforms, are expected to demonstrate respect for one another and are punished if they misbehave. Furthermore, they are not rewarded for good behavior; it is simply expected. My only concern is that they assign two to three hours of homework nightly. That seems excessive to me. Do you agree, or should I stop worrying?

Obama repeats end of Iraq combat promise

ATLANTA - Nearing a milestone in the long and divisive Iraq war, President Barack Obama on Monday hailed this month's planned withdrawal of all U.S. combat troops - "as promised and on schedule" - as a major success despite deep doubts about the Iraqis' ability to police and govern their country.

Portraying the end of America's combat role in the 7-year war as a personal promise kept, Obama said Iraq will have 90,000 fewer U.S. troops by September than when he took office - a steady homeward flow he called "a season of homecomings." But there could still be ...

Dispose of medicines safely

If you are like most people, you have accumulated a collection of prescription drugs and other pharmaceuticals that are no longer needed. Once it was common practice to flush these medications down the toilet or just throw them in the trash. This is no longer true. Studies have shown that septic systems, water treatment facilities, and trash disposal methods do not destroy the components of the prescription drug. This can lead to contamination of soil, surface water, and ground water. Keeping the environment clean is much easier than cleaning it up after it is polluted.
