Don’t know much about history? Don’t take this course!

Prominent American architecture critic Martin Filler once observed: “The variable posthumous reputations of even the greatest artists and the unpredictable revivals of interest in even the most obscure ones tend to reveal more about those who make revisionist assessments than about those who are being reassessed.”Filler was talking about art, of course, but his observation could apply to revisionists who greatly influenced the redesigned Advanced Placement U.S. History ...

Logan County News

Railroads have played a major role in the development of America for more than 150 years. The growth and progress can be shown with the expansion of the railroads north and south and then westward all the way to the Pacific Ocean. The term “Robber Barons” was given to the early railroad owners who were sometimes ruthless in their westward expansion. Many of the wealthiest families in America gained their fortunes through their association with the railroads.

Lake Malone news

After all the rain that we had this Labor Day week end, Mother Nature really did her stuff tonight. It is the day after the Holiday Disaster and we had the most beautiful sunset I have ever seen on the lake. I looked out my window just as the sun was going over the hill in front of our house and the clouds look like great big marshmallows that were floating through the sky and the sky behind them was a brilliant pink! I just went out on the porch and sit and watch as the marshmallow clouds fl...

Strategy 101: A primer for President Obama

In August 1961, while the Soviets erected the Berlin Wall to plunge the Cold War into the deep freeze, President John F. Kennedy ordered the Joint Chiefs of Staff to devise a nuclear-first strike plan. The Strategic Air Command responded with a plan involving 55 B-52’s hitting 80 Soviet bomber and missile bases and eliminating an estimated 90 percent of the Soviet’s nuclear capability. Since Russian bomber and rocket bases were located in isolated areas, civilian and military casu...

The Leaf Blower Divide

When new neighbors moved in next door, I didn’t hold off long before broaching the Big Question.Even though we live in Washington, D.C., this had nothing to do with politics. For me, neighborly harmony hinges on where folks stand on this divide: leaf blower vs. rake.You see, I’m one of those otherwise calm individuals who goes totally bonkers at the sound of a leaf blower. It would be different if this infernal racket served some useful purpose. When I go to ...

Handy contents from the wastebasket

The wastebasket beside my reading chair has to be one of the handiest furnishings in my house. It helps me to make quick work of going through the mail. If an item is not a bill to be paid or a magazine that offers in-depth reading, everything goes into the wastebasket, collecting the clutter.It receives the pebble that I shake from my shoe, lint plucked from the arm of the chair and tossed tissues after a sneeze. But the wastebasket is most valuable to me because of what I can ret...

Staving off traffic jams along the information super-highway

There was no vacation for the Internet this summer.While many Americans slipped away to the beach, Internet users were busy defending the openness of a network that has become this era’s engine for free expression, ingenuity and just about everything else.The threat comes from Federal Communications Commission Chairman Tom Wheeler, who has proposed new rules that would fundamentally change the workings of the Web — leaving its fate in the hands of a few power...

Good news: Marriage is challenging

I like good news, except when the good news turns out to be false. Recently it has been reported that we have been misled by social scientists for decades about the divorce rate in the United States. Some are writing that the divorce rate has never been close to 50 percent and that the actual divorce rate is near 20 to 25 percent. If it were true that marriage is in much better shape than previously thought, it would indeed be very good news. But it simply isn’t true and making such cla...
