Celebrate your freedoms, vote as you see fit

By Lynn Moncus Being a member of the over-the-hill-gang certainly has its advantages because we can remember times that were and be thankful to have lived during them. For instance, we can remember when we weren’t battered by politics and politicians for more than a few months at a time. In fact, we rarely were [...]

Not being remembered isn’t so bad

By Lynn Moncus: Comments from the Canyons Emily Dickinson’s poem, “I’m nobody, who are you? Are you nobody too?” became more meaningful than ever recently when I entered the courthouse, had to identify myself, and spell my name. Actually, there really was no reason for me to be surprised that I am no longer known [...]

Left-handedness

By Leonard Lauriault From my younger years, I remember hearing, “Right is right and left is wrong.” While I grew up during the Cold War and many communist groups were called, “Leftist,” and many today refer to more liberal, egalitarian philosophies as being to the left, this saying had nothing to do with politics, economics, [...]

I have been here two years and the families and friends have donated or purchased Pine Trees behind [...]

Remember heroism on Memorial Day

By Debra Whittington: QCS Religion Columnist Remember the days of old, consider the years of many generations: ask thy father, and he will shew thee; thy elders, and they will tell thee. Deuteronomy 32:7. A couple of weeks ago, Mark and I sat on our friend’s boat out at Ute Lake spending leisurely day fishing. [...]

We have common bond despite different experiences

By Debra Whittington: QCS columnist “Seek the LORD and his strength, seek his face continually. Remember his marvelous works that he hath done, his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth.” 1 Chronicles 16:11-12. The host class for this year’s Rattler Reunion was the class of 1975, which also happens to be the same year [...]
