Chosen Words

Wednesday, December 5, 2012 by Mangerlight in Opinion

Today I passed a manger scene

So filled with cares, tired and green.

With envy for what others had,

Envious, surly and quite sad.

When manger's light did me beckon,

And asked me to but pause, and reckon,

"What wondrous presence filled that place?"

Which had been meant for beastly face.

And thus transformed, and now was there

For love's rebirth in time and sphere,

That I, stricken, repent and turn

And beg God's light...

Editor's View

Wednesday, December 5, 2012 by DEB PALMIERI in Opinion

If the Mayan calendar's end-of-the-world "prediction," doesn't kill us on Dec. 21, surely the fall off the so-called "fiscal cliff" at the end of the year will.

If our elected officials, who spend more time on television explaining why they can't agree on a savings and spending plan, rather than actually doing something about it, fail to avert the tax hikes coming Jan. 1, 2013, we all will be dangling from the edge as our 401k plans dwindle and our grocery bills double.
