Letter: Pope is right — morality of acting on climate change is clear

Now 99 percent of climate change experts agree that climate change is real and caused by humans. But what if only 50 percent agreed?

If there was only a 25 percent, or even a 10 percent chance, would you cross?

People are thankful for food banks because it helps children and adults all over the world. Sometimes people do not understand that food banks help people in their own community. This is how you can help people in your community.

Editorial: Starbucks flap pours out a cup of bad cheer

Amid the real issues and challenges our society faces headed toward an election year comes this one that blew up the Internet last week: The coffee chain Starbucks came up with a plain red holiday cup that some didn't deem festive or "Christmasy" enough.

Editorial: Veterans tell of battles against the unknown

Americans who haven't served in the military should try to understand what we have asked of the young men and women who have laid their lives on the line for our benefit. We can't really walk in their boots and share the full experience of combat and beyond. But even if we can comprehend just a bit of the dangers they endured overseas, and the challenges they now face back home, we can better fathom the human cost of war. In doing so, we should wisely choose leaders who don't lead us into them carelessly.
