We are all Americans--Let's debate instead of demonizing each other

As our nation celebrates its 242nd birthday, all of us living in this great country should remember that we are part of the United States. The brave people who signed the Declaration of Independence on the Fourth of July in 1776, would likely be appalled by the lack of decorum in public discourse these many years later. After all, their goal was to unite the people of the thirteen colonies for the greater good and not to divide them into warring camps.

One way to strengthen our schools (and nation)

We Americans owe our freedom to a heritage going back 4,000 years. Yet most High School graduates are only taught about the past 300. This cultural heritage tells us who we are. We are not defined by blood or soil, but by our culture; those core beliefs and folkways that bind us together. Culture determines what we believe is worth living, dying, and even killing for. Wherever our personal ancestry originates is far less important than the Western Civilization we share in common.

It’s impossible for me to review any new “Jurassic Park” movie objectively. I’m on the record, several times over, as being an unapologetic fan of the entire franchise. Steven Spielberg’s 1993 original was the definitive film of my childhood, so I always tend to look at its sequels through petrified amber-colored glasses.

IMMIGRANTS: Old laws rule

When I moved to Oklahoma in 1982, “liquor by the drink” had finally become legal. Up to that point, establishments pouring a customer a drink from a booze bottle was illegal. Booze bearing customers brought their own from state run liquor stores while the establishments served drinks sans the booze. Oklahoma had an antiquated ignored law only enforced when authorities became annoyed with certain establishments.

He was referred to an oncologist who diagnosed that the patient had the beginnings of nodular melanoma — a very serious, dangerous type of skin cancer.

HIV: Know your status

Today, June 27, is National HIV Testing Day. When this annual observance started in 1985, there were fewer resources to treat a positive HIV diagnosis. We have made great progress in testing, early intervention and treatment of HIV. In fact, approximately half of those with HIV achieved viral suppression through lifesaving medications. Despite these advances, the CDC estimates that 14 percent of those who are infected, many of them young people, are living with the virus and do not know it and are unintentionally spreading infection. Rapid testing with oral swabs is simple and easy. Testing can reduce those numbers and get everyone who needs it into care, regardless of their ability to pay.

Do you have pain that comes and goes fairly often?

Pain can go away or vary from day to day, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t a problem. For example, if you notice pain in your lower back or your knee every time you go up and down the steps, then this is a sign of a problem. The more you ignore it, the greater the problem can become. Pain does not simply go away or fix itself; your body usually adapts and makes it seem like the issue is resolved. This is why, when you least expect it, you bend over, brush your hair or lift a grocery bag and the pain brings you to your knees.

Every spring, hundreds of thousands of people suffer when the pollen starts to fly. Over-the-counter sales of allergy medications are whisked off the shelves and doctors are pummeled with requests for stronger prescription meds. Articles on controlling allergies abound, but they’re all about minimizing exposure, not about how to resolve them. What if there was a way to eliminate allergies, not just control them? There is.

NEWS: Stick to facts

As far as your editorial about newspaper content and how the Coeur d’Alene Press is going to do better: In the past, national and local news programs and the front pages of print newspapers were dominated by fact-reporting stories. However today, many sources people consider to be “news sources” are actually dominated by analysis and opinion pieces whose point is to only mislead or provide biased information. AKA Fake News.

That said, what we are doing as a nation to children of illegals is appalling. They are being kept walled up in an old Walmart with the window all papered over. The children are being housed in warehouses. Now new plans are afoot to build a tent city on a base in Texas to house up to 5,000 children.

'Ocean's 8' offers a great cast, forgettable heist

Outside of the ensemble of movie stars, it’s difficult to remember much from “Ocean’s 8,” a pleasant-but-slight heist movie that lacks tension and personality. Make no mistake — the team-up of Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett as expert thieves working an elaborate jewel heist is a surefire, box office-smashing premise. Unfortunately, their characters lack the specificity to enliven the film’s numerous setup and exposition sequences.

When I was a little girl, I can remember my kindergarten teacher telling us that if we were ever lost or afraid to “go find a police officer and they will help you.” Indeed, I taught my children the same, that there is safety and harbor found by seeking a police officer if you need assistance. Police officers have long been held up as the pinnacle of guardians for public safety; risking their very lives for the people they serve: their fellow citizens, neighbors and friends.

Fathers in all forms a blessing

Father’s Day evokes sweet memories of my own father, as well as the father that fate and providence brought into the lives of my three daughters in 1986 when Bert and I were married. Three daughters, two of whom were teenagers, created a ready-made family and no shortage of teen angst and drama. But through it all for three decades, Bert has loved unconditionally these daughters of ours. He wasn’t there at their birth but has been their northern star through every important milestone and crossroad. For every man who has loved and raised their children by marriage, blessings tenfold. I’m convinced there’s a special place in Heaven for you all. Happy Father’s Day!

ICE: Chilling separation policy

I write to condemn in the strongest language that I can summon the current ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) policy, conducted in the name of the American people, of separating parents and children at our borders. Families fleeing violence and poverty in their own countries are encountering new trauma: Children are being separated from their parents without warning, explanation, or any information or assurance of reunification and sent to facilities ill-equipped and ill-prepared to properly care for them.

Apparently, the entire staff of that department has no idea how to read a calendar to be able to get the information to U.S. News & World Reports timely.

Urgent goal: Keep guns out of schools

In the United States, as in all of western civilization, children of certain ages are required by law to attend public schools. Because of this coercive factor, public school systems have the highest possible duty to actually educate children. To educate children, school systems must first make the children in their care safe. No meaningful education occurs where children feel unsafe or where they are in fact unsafe.

Beautiful Coeur d’ Alene. The lake, green scenery, and surrounding countryside make it exquisite. It’s no wonder CDA is cited as the 11th fastest growing metro area according to U.S. Census data for the Department of Labor. But it seems like the 2018 population of our city is multiplying more rapidly than those statistics. (Every day, I talk to people who have moved here from Colorado, California, Montana, Virginia, Oklahoma, Washington, Florida and other states.) Several realtors have told me the population of CDA and surrounding areas could possibly increase by 5,000 soon. Whether, you are recent resident or a native Idahoan, as Bob Dylan succinctly wrote, “The times, they are a changing.” In the “Gem State” of Idaho, CDA is shining brightly. People are finding a pathway to a new home here. I am one of those people. One, among countless people, who came to CDA to buy a home in a beautiful environment and community.
