Don’t drink and drive

Don’t drink and drive

Dear Berthoud I realize I am by no means a perfect person, however I try to be a good citizen in our community. There is one issue that irritates me beyond belief and that is the number of our fellow citizens who continue to choose to drink and drive in our town. Has everyone forgotten about poor Todd Peeples and the other boy who were killed in the spring of 2003? So, I have zero axe to grind with anyone here in town, but if you drink and drive ... park it ... and yes... call a cab, a ... Full Story

Slices of Life, A message to my favorite child

Slices of Life, A message to my favorite child

    By: Jill Pertler   Every mother has a favorite – or so the saying goes. Before becoming a mother myself, I wondered if this were true.

I am here today to come clean with each of my children. Ahem. Pause. Here goes. My dearest first-born child: I have something important to tell you. You suffered ... Full Story

Slices of Life: A love story

Bickering: a love story   By: Jill Pertler We were busy bickering – like couples can bicker after two or 12 or 20 years of marriage. He made breakfast five mornings in a row. I folded eight loads of laundry. He fed the dog and took out the garbage. I fed the fish and cleaned the toilets. I made meatloaf. He shoveled the driveway. I helped with homework. He served as field trip chaperone. I packed bagged lunches. He drove the kids to school. Finally, it was Friday and we ... Full Story

The GOP and Attacks on Women

The GOP and Attacks on Women

  Since Republicans took control of the House of Representative in January, ther has been a concerning set of priorities revealed through the proposed legislation put forth by Speaker of the House John Boehner and his colleagues, many of which have attacked women. Whether we look at the failed GOP proposal to redefine rape in a way completely antithetical to women’s rights, at restricting access to legal and safe abortions, or at many other proposals, the storyline is clear.
