    Recent chilly nights have been perfect for a warm beverage. I’m not one who can get away with drinking coffee after mid-day, without being up half the night. But a nice hot cup of caffeine-free herbal or green tea works just fine. My favorite time for tea is late afternoon, when I’ve earned a little bit of reading time in a comfy chair. This is not a major tea-and-crumpets event, since dinner is only a few hours away. Just a nice, warm, soothing cup of tea.

    At the end of October 2015, it was revealed that our state government paid half a million dollars in pension payments to people who were already dead. Well, then, what do you think of budgeting many times that amount for people who don’t even exist?

    Peter asks: I am having difficulty with something eating or cutting off my new seedlings shortly after they emerge. I see a small beetle-like bug and some roly-poly critters in the soil. Are these causing the problem? If so, how do I get rid of them? If not, what’s causing the damage?

    With our legislative session just starting, I thought it would be a good time to get the viewpoints of our representatives on the role of legislation and business and to ask them about their personal legislative priorities. Sen. Josh Green and Rep. Cindy Evans shared their thoughts.

    Are you a high school student (or the parent of one) who is wondering how best to spend your summer? What do colleges expect high school students to do during their school holidays? While summer is a great time to relax and recharge, it’s also an excellent opportunity for teenagers to show commitment, responsibility, passion, leadership and reflection — all characteristics that can really boost your chance of getting into a good college!
