  • We congratulate: Our graduates on a job well done

    We could not be happier for our county’s nearly 500 graduates.

    They’ve been told that the best is yet to come, but like many things you’ve heard from your parents and those older it’s difficult to comprehend.

    They see the freedom and the potential as they move into a life of work or college, but they don’t see the failures that are sure to come.

    We can offer them wisdom and guidance, but those failures will be key as they learn who they want to be and how they want to contribute to society.

  • MY WORD: A vacuum in leadership

    Nature abhors a vacuumaccording to Aristotle and Sir Isaac Newton. 

    They were talking about physics, saying that no object or no place can be truly empty.  They argued that every place and everything is filled with something.  The same rule applies to geopolitics and global leadership. 

  • MY WORD: Climate change – where is our world going?

    Recently the head of a United Nations panel warned, "If the world doesn't cut pollution of heat-trapping gases, global warming could become out of control." A group of Nobel laureate scientists predicts dangers are going to become worse as time passes.

    Cris Field of the Carnegie Institute for Science in California reports, "We live in an area where impacts from climate change are already widespread and consequential." Other climate scientists say, "Nobody around the world is immune."

  • MY WORD: How Japan used WW II to win the auto battle

    Here’s a brief history of the American auto business since World War II.

    Some of us remember when “made in Japan” was a synonym for “junk.”

    In A chapter in Klanthhammer’s book “Things that Matter,” there is a passage about collective guilt – which is never far from my mind – that triggered memories of “separate but equal” laws.
