Come on cold front
I’ve never made a secret of the fact October is my favorite month of the year. The leaves are starting to turn, it ceases to be so oppressively hot outside and a bit of “brisk” creeps into the air, and it’s the month of my birthday! To each of you who expressed a “Happy Birthday” to me this week, thank you so much. My cup indeed runneth over. I’m a blessed (older) woman.
Letters to the Editor10/5/13
To the Editor: A letter to Corsicana Mayor Chuck McClanahan:
I was saddened to read the story in the paper stating the city was planning to close the public swimming pools so that a for-profit water park located on the edge of town across an Interstate highway could make a little more money.
Things that make you happy
I read the most amazing blog recently in the Huffington Post. It talked about having flatter abs and a better sex life will make you a happier more self-fulfilled person, in a cynical manner. We all subscribe to the mindset of “If I only looked like that person on the cover of the magazine, then I would be so happy; and my life would be just as I want it to be.”
What does God want?

Working all year

Guest Commentary: Navarro Regional to help consumers sign up for new health insurance options
Beginning Oct. 1, Navarro Regional Hospital will help residents enroll in new affordable health insurance options.

A primary goal of the Affordable Care Act is to help uninsured, eligible Americans gain access to affordable healthcare.
When we all run
When I was a kid, Little League Baseball wasn’t much more than a sandlot game. Most of us played football as a pickup game on any vacant lot, tackle without pads. I am sure the controlled collisions on Friday nights were safer.
OK, can anybody explain to me the difference between the “use-by,” “sell-by,” and “best-before” dates we find on food containers? I thought not! There really is no rhyme-nor-reason standard nor a requirement in this country for these arbitrary dates.
Ode to Rocket
About February of 2003, an elderly couple walked in to the Daily Sun offices. The woman had a black eye, her hand and wrist were bandaged, and she had various scrapes and bruises. And she was crying.
