Ain’t technology wonderful? Oh, sure, sometimes it becomes a bit overwhelming and maybe even overhyped. It seems that constant communications and worldwide information at our fingertips has become a must-have ability that we couldn’t possibly do without.  Clearly, technology advances make us more efficient in the workplace and daily living. But I’d also argue that Twittering and Facebook pages shouldn’t replace direct interpersonal relations, unless of course you believe we’re doomed to fulfill some sort of offshoot prophecy of an Orwellian society.  And I’m not a subscriber to a theory of machines taking over every aspect of our lives. ...

Community theater wows audience, cast members

When I interviewed Rita Tingey in September, she had a dream of Ronan’s very own community theater — where local people with some creative talent could band together and create something magical. She was banking on all the closet thespians to come out of the closet.  She laughed and ga...

Thanks to a caring community

Editor, It with deep heartfelt thanks that I write this letter to thank all of you who attended a recent cancer benefit for my family and me.

Lecture valuable for understanding centennial

Editor, I was part of a sizeable audience that heard attorney Daniel J. Decker speak last Thursday at the SKC theatre. For those who missed this, Decker reviewed the last 100 years of Tribal land issues - chronicled through U.S. Congressional Acts. The delivery clarified what I already understood of th...
