We'll keep the packages coming

March 5, 2011

By BILL MCCLELLAN

The Herald recently received a letter from H. Scott Davis, chairman of Christmas For Our Troops Inc. In the letter, Mr. Davis thanked the Herald for helping get the word out about the organization, which provided gift boxes to U.S. military deployed to Afghanistan and Iraq during the holidays.

More important than thanking the Herald, Mr. Davis wrote “I cannot begin to express my deep appreciation for all that the citizens of Big Spring did to help our troops. Suffice it to say that your readers set a new standard for volunteer support.”

Are we judging too quickly?

February 24, 2011

By AMANDA MORENO

Society has come to judge everyone.

People are judged by the way they dress, the way they speak, how much money they have ... that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

There are so many labels and not enough chances. Don’t get me wrong, there are some things that can’t be overlooked, some mistakes that can’t be erased and some people who won’t ever change. However, I’m not naïve enough to believe the world is all sunshine and rainbows, but at the same time, I’m not naïve enough to believe that all people are bad and won’t ever change.

If you dress like a thug ...

February 18, 2011

As a journalist, there are certain topics you simply avoid from time to time. Some of them are simple, like the difference between the words “effect” and “affect,” which still gives me fits as a professional writer. Others are more volatile, such as the powder kegs known as religion and politics.

Unfortunately, the ostrich method — simply sticking your head in the sand so you don't have to deal with the issue — does little to help things, and, by most standards, just makes them worse.

Saying something that matters

February 17, 2011

By AMANDA MORENO

Saying something that matters is more important than simply saying something.

When it comes to writing my column, I don't write about government issues or religion. I stay away from the political arena because it's far too complicated and hostile for me. Instead, when I go to let my column flow, I put pen to paper and tell about what I know — life.

Some may say it's irrelevant, unorthodox or just the easy way out. For those that think that, who knows, maybe they are right, but maybe they aren't.
