Reading is fundamental to liberty

"Reading is fundamental" was a popular slogan when I was an elementary student in Los Angeles during the 1970s.

Reading is not only still fundamental, it is even more profoundly so than it was 40 years ago.

Neighbor's flag upsets woman

Editor: On June 15, I got new neighbors. It was a joyous day. The neighboring house has been vacant for months. To know that the small house next door will not fall into disrepair and become an eye-sore was a relief to me. And, the new occupants were familiar to my husband.
