Several years ago, my son nearly died in a single-vehicle rollover accident. It was late; he was tired and he dozed. As his vehicle drifted off the road, the rumble strips woke him up.

I can’t think of a person I have met who is happy with the presidential candidates we have. Their flaws are too numerous to mention. And regardless of which “lesser of two evils” you have chosen, you know we can do better. Way better.
I was aghast after reading “Trump urges Russia to uncover deleted Clinton emails” (TCH, July 28). To think any American politician, let alone a presidential candidate, would turn to Russia for help in getting elected is appalling.
In less than 10 days, my kids will go back to school – so please do me a favor. Do not ask them if they are sad about it. Seriously, until you pose that leading question, it never even occurs to children that they should be sad. In fact, they’re quite excited.
