CLASSY LADY

By Linda Mowery-Denning
 
Ellsworth has experienced impressive development in recent years. However, for those of us already here one of the questions has been — what have those new businesses brought to town? Do they attract more outside dollars or do they simply create more competition by offering goods already here?

Victory for small-minded

by Jerry Marsh
 
On Dec. 26, 2013, I wrote the following in the Indy: Could anyone blame the Speaker [of the House John Boehner] if he did leave Congress?

THE GOLDEN RULE

Pope’s message gives us hope for a better United States
 
Hundreds of thousands of people flooded into Philadelphia Sunday to witness the final public appearance of Pope Francis during his 10-day trip to the United States and Cuba. It was the same everywhere he went, it seemed. Hundreds and thousands waiting for just a glimpse of the man who came here to tell us what we already know and don’t practice nearly enough — embrace the Golden Rule and treat others as you would have them treat you. During a sermon to lawmakers in Washington, D.C., the Pope challenged Congress and voters alike to serve the needy and to see the world in nuance rather than the “simplistic reductionism which sees only good or evil.”

Throw the dice and pray

By Donald Kaul

The stock market is down. It must be some crazy thing China has done. Those Communist countries just don’t understand how capitalism works. No, wait! The market just went up. Did China fix its capital markets already? Not really. More likely it’s that our Federal Reserve has hinted that it’s not going to raise interest rates any time soon because a bunch of economists are afraid of deflation.
