Submitted by Edward Jones,
10:35AM / Wednesday, August 09, 2017

You may not see it in the greeting card section of your local drugstore, but August is "What Will Be Your Legacy Month." So it's a good time to think about the type of legacy you would like to leave.

What an intriguing, promising opening!

Underscored by a lively overture, we see a black and white movie clip of a young couple speaking intensely and kissing even more intensely. Then the man is shot and falls to the floor. Watching this film-noir parody with us is an older man looking up at the screen in his art-deco-esque, sunken screening room. We haven't a clue what's going on and for the next two hours or so, we have to work hard, too hard, to figure it

Letters to the Editor,
01:00PM / Friday, August 04, 2017

To the Editor:
