Uninhibited and unrelenting (01/03/07)
Party Nate and Shiv Schiwitz can melt your face in three different genre's of music.

Mortar envy (01/03/07)
Was I envious -- nay, jealous of the fall 2006 graduates of Southeast Missouri State University? I suppose that I was. I could have given my time in college a little longer; OK ... community college.

Satellite killing the radio star? (01/03/07)
Local radio, through no fault of its own, was already being phased out by the illegal music pirates who could just as easily make hundreds of burnt albums of their favorite artists than wait for said artists to be played on any station.

Here in my car... (01/03/07)
Hello Friends, my name is Ilene and I am your new columnist. I hope you enjoy the below material. Does anyone remember "Archie" comic books? If not, I don't know where you've been for the past seven decades, but I won't hold that against you. I grew up borderline obsessed with the slick little paperbacks and even met one of the illustrators for "Archie." I also met Marie from "Sesame Street," but that is another story...

All things must pass (01/03/07)
Please, bow your heads for a moment of silence for 2006. It was a good year, it was a bad year, it was a year of "truthiness." It was a year that saw the situation in Iraq worsen, the death of James Brown, the formation of the Raconteurs and a Democratic election win. An odd year, right?...
Fanfare for the common man (01/03/07)
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- The nation remembered Gerald R. Ford on Tuesday for what he didn't have -- pretensions, a scheming agenda, a great golf game -- as much as for the small-town authenticity he brought to the presidency.

New Year's resolutions for Congress (01/03/07)
For us average Joes, it's the perfect time to kick bad habits, do a few push-ups and shoot for the stars. For elected officials, there is a much greater opportunity.

Queen of cakes (01/03/07)
For Christmas, my mom bought me a 15-piece pot and pan set.

Either way, I haven't used them yet -- don't worry Mom, I will!...

Add this recipe to your files for this new year...

Blame game is typical of the Right (01/03/07)
To the editor:All of this finger-pointing, blaming and name-calling is so typical coming from most of the right-wing Republicans in this area. To claim that Democrats and liberals are to blame for the animosity in politics is absurd. To claim that Jane Fonda and the young Clintons of the 1960s are to blame for the conditions we live in today are so senseless. This should show everyone how closed-minded and illogical these people really are...
