Letter: Fighting to win is what has kept Americans free

I grew up the son of an Army officer well-schooled in military history and tactics. During family vacations and trips, my dad would often take us to Civil War battlefields or old Revolutionary War forts and spend hours wandering around, reading about their historical importance.

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 you were going to cross a foot bridge with a 2,000-foot drop beneath, and there was only a 50 percent chance that it would break and send you to your death, would you try and cross? If there was only a 25 percent, or even a 10 percent chance, would you cross?

We are thankful for a lot of things but a lot of people are thankful for this one thing: food banks. Our Girl Scout troop recently learned more about how our community food bank operates.
