Commentary

I am a planner, somewhat of an organizer, appreciate things done on time and in an efficient manner, and like to know where I am headed in my daily chores, in my work, in travel, having fun, and in life in general. As this year comes to a close and we are set to begin a new one, I have been giving thought to where I am in life and what I want accomplish in the coming months. I still have goals, plans and dreams at 74 years of age, and believe that as long as I am alive, I should be reaching for them with every ounce of my being.

While Dec. 25 is not the actual day on which Christ was born, it is the date on which we celebrate His birth. And while this celebration has been associated with many traditions, some of which distract from the importance of His birth, they do not distract from the imperative of His birth. Some say that Jesus was a great man, or a great prophet. Others, believing the biblical account, affirm that He is God. This raises the question why did God need to or have to become a man? And what is necessity of the Incarnation?

I’m Izzy, a 6-year-old spayed female Lab mix. I didn’t think my life would turn out like this, sitting in a shelter, sharing a kennel with a stranger. I was in a home when I was younger. I was loved by the family and was very happy. I am gentle, get along with other animals and children. I am housebroken and have gone to obedience school! My only fault is I take thyroid meds … and what lady my age doesn’t? I don’t understand why my family left me here.

The big week is almost here, and for me, it is a big week indeed. My birthday is Dec. 23, and then we have the blessed Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. For those of us celebrating a different kind of Christmas this year for whatever reason, please let me assure you with confidence that God knows all about each of our Christmases and what we will have and what we will not have.

Q. We had our foundation repaired by a company that gave us a “lifetime warranty.” Now that it has cracked again they won’t even return our calls. We are not even sure if they are still in business. What are our legal rights? What kind of an attorney do we need?

Hi, Guys! Aren’t my eyes hypnotizing? My name is Zorro and I’m a shepherd/Lab mix who is about 2 years old. I love to play with toys and run around with my doggie friends. I’d love a home with children, but I can be a little clumsy, so bigger kids would be best. If you are interested in me, please contact BAS and ask for me Zorro, No. 27896.
