Returning home to the aftermath
My husband and I recently indulged in a couple of days away as a couple to celebrate our anniversary. When we partake on such expeditions, which isn't often, we both understand the significance of the outcome. That is, the outcome upon returning home to a house inhabited by our three...

What's in a name?
It's one of the first things new parents do after counting to make sure there are 10 fingers and 10 toes: They name the baby. Names are chosen carefully and with great attention to detail. What sort of mean nicknames could kids in the schoolyard find to taunt little Dicky with? Will...

Walk, climb, move!
Look around — they're everywhere. Not smartphones, but they frequently work in partnership, like Fred and Wilma but in a less caveperson style. People wear them on the wrist like people used to wear watches, which they are, but that's just the tip of the flintstone, dear fr...

The lost decade
Jill Pertler We play a name-that-tune game in the car while listening to the radio. Whoever is first to blurt the title of a song and the name of the group or artist singing it wins. Last weekend, I encountered a melody unfamiliar to me. When I fessed up to this, my husband said:...

The 7 wonders of life
We've all heard of the Seven Wonders of the World. Most of us couldn't name them all. I couldn't, so I Googled and discovered I hadn't even heard of some. Embarrassing, I know. Unfortunately, I'm more familiar with embarrassment than the Seven Wonders of the World. Actually, it's...

Adventuring through life
Life is supposed to be an adventure. That's what they tell us, anyway. Thing is, what type of adventure isn't specified so I guess we are left to our own devices. Most of us would welcome a nonstop, exciting, inspiring all-expense-paid and anything-but-banal adventure. Truth is,...

Getting ready, being ready, baby ready
She is going to have a baby. The little pink bundle we carried home from the hospital but a blink ago is soon going to be a mother herself. My baby girl is having a baby girl. It seems too good to be true — and scarier than heck, all at the same time. I'm the one who's scared,...

Liquid gold brings clarity
In many parts of the world, people walk miles just to access it. Here in the U.S., we may take it for granted because for most of us, it comes from the tap with the flick of a wrist. Some of us buy it bottled. Some of us like it with a slice of lemon or lime. Some prefer iced. Others,...

The entire Second Amendment reads, "A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." Several Founding Fathers defined the militia. James Madison explained, "A well-regulated militia,...

Kern is the best choice
As a former City Councilor I know what it takes to be a leader for the community, and when I see those qualities in someone else, I will vote for them. I spent countless hours representing the city of Superior, and I know the hard work and dedication it takes to continue to make...

Local elections, votes matter
Income inequality in the United States has increased dramatically since the 1970s. Right here in Superior, progress is being threaten again. Voting records rather than name recognition must be considered. Voting records separate campaign rhetoric from the truth of serving, and making...

Elm gets the job done
I am writing to you about Tylor Elm. I just wanted to let the folks in my district know that he is on the City Council for us. When he was campaigning for the seat last time, we talked about the sidewalk in front of a house that had been torn down next door to me. I had told Tylor...
