Sometimes, it seems like we have forgotten what Thanksgiving is about. We should be thankful every day. Even the poorest of our poor is still far better off than many people in third world countries. I am not making light of the problems that many families face in our country, but we still have many things to be thankful for.

The voters of America got it right when they elected Donald Trump the 45th President of the United States.
We are celebrating recycling this week at Keep Liberty Beautiful. America Recycles Day is Tuesday. It is the only nationally recognized day dedicated to encouraging Americans to recycle and to buy recycled products.
We ask much of our men and women in uniform, and they ask little in return. As a nation, we are ultimately responsible for ensuring whatever effects veterans suffer in the mission of defending our nation will be treated here at home. So on this Veterans Day, the question we must ask ourselves is: If veterans fought for our freedom, shouldn't we fight for theirs?
When the good folks of Lennox Valley began to stir on Friday morning, many wondered if the events of Thursday evening had been a dream. Let's face it – most of the previous six months seemed like a nightmare, so why should election night have been any different?
Tuesday is Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Day! I realize that many of you do not share my enthusiasm nor have any idea what GIS is or why it deserves to have an entire day dedicated to it.
