THAT'S THE WAY I SAW IT

WAYNEDALE POST OFFICE DÉCOR

 

Between the years 1994-2000 if you entered the lobby of the Waynedale Station you didn't much care if there was a line as the walls were covered with sports posters, baseball cards, postage stamps with sports background and other miscellaneous memorabilia. This semi-museum was accomplished by two former Waynedale Postal employees, Larry Wagner and Kevin Tempel.

Usually Fort Wayne Postal employees are very sports minded. Some of the old timers Red Carrington...

Thanks to your newspaper for the publicity you gave us and thanks also to the nine dance bands that performed, the merchants who contributed items to be raffled off, the electronic media, AND thanks to the people who...

IN FAITH

Details

How long should it last? The change in our lives, I mean. The change from the disaster. We spent a week saying that we would never look at life in the same way. And yet, as the days have slipped by, things look the same. We are finding that the children which we longed to hug forever on September 11 still do things that aggravate us.

REPORTS OF ATTACKS AGAINST ARAB-AMERICANS

Details

Statement by Bishop John M. D'Arcy

 

Terrible reports of verbal and physical attacks, as well as attacks on property, against Arab Americans and members of the Islamic religion are arising throughout the country.

As Americans and Catholics we must do everything in our power to oppose such mindless acts of prejudice.

This is our responsibility as American citizens. I am old enough to remember what was done to Japanese-Americans in World War II. They were as American as any of us, and later...

BOMBING AFGHANISTAN BACK TO THE STONE AGE

Details

This commentary comes from Tamim Ansary, a writer and columnist in San Francisco, who comes from Afghanistan.

I've been hearing a lot of talk about "bombing Afghanistan back to the Stone Age."

Ronn Owens, on KGO Talk Radio today, allowed that this would mean killing innocent people, people who had nothing to do with this atrocity, but "we're at war, we have to accept collateral damage. What else can we do?" Minutes later I heard some TV pundit discussing whether we "have the belly to do what...

HOMETOWN VIEWS

Details Mrs. Waynedale

Oooooooohhh I just have to tell you about the bestest food around. Now I have eaten in a lot of restaurants around town and in quite a few-out-of-the-way restaurants in small towns in Indiana and in a few surrounding states but by and large I prefer sampling the foods at outdoor festivals the best. Why? I don't know; maybe it's because no one notices the way Wayne handles the food situation. He is totally dedicated to eating and he doesn't care who gets in the way or who gets splashed on, the...
