Feb 9th 2011 10:02AM Blackistone fails to differentiate between policy, politics, and our country. The Star Spangled Banner is a fitting tribute to our country and our flag regardless if every person in the stadium agrees with current government policies and programs. In our free country, each individual is at liberty to stand, sing, remain seated and silent, or express themselves in any manner not harmful to others. It's a great tradition that should continue. We may not all agree, but still defend each person's right to express an individual opinion.
Nov 23rd 2010 7:50AM For 30 years we had a really "live" tree, on the root ball, to celebrate Christmas. After the holidays, we planted it on the property. We are now surrounded by beautiful pines and each is a living memory of a past holiday season. If I win the drawing, let the tree live and grow.
