AT THE MOVIES WITH KASEY BUTCHER

Details

There's something about Disney movies that make a person feel like a little kid again. For many a moviegoer, Disney provided their first experience at a theater. I remember the first time I went to see a movie. I was three years old and I went to see The Little Mermaid with my parents and little brother. It was the beginning of a long lasting love of movies. Now, it's no surprise that every time I see an animated film in the theater I am reminded of that fist fateful trip to the cinema...

ANOTHER VIEW

The world has never really been a very predictable place. Long before capitalists conceived the notion of the stock market, with all its ups and downs, farmers had to leave their crops to the whims of the weather. A couple of dry years or stormy years could ruin a farmer and send him and his family on a search for a new means of living. Hoosiers understand this better than a lot of people, given that agriculture still generates a larger share of the state's revenue than it does in many...

"Catch 'Em Being Good" Or Why Positive Discipline Teaches The Right Lesson

 

Fathers' Day, 2003

It seems like only yesterday, but, Ginny (my wife) and I have been in the parenting business for over 19 years, now. We both have a little more gray hair, and in my case, a little more weight. But, I would hope that over the years, I've learned a bit more about how to relate to our children.

I've often daydreamed about what I'd do if I had all the power in the world. Would I solve world hunger or create a new species of flower? Would I end war or engineer a pink cow that actually did produce strawberry milk? Hmmm...decisions, decisions.

Bruce Nolan (Jim Carrey, The Majestic) is given the opportunity to make these tough decisions in the new comedy Bruce Almighty. Bruce is a reporter for the local Buffalo five o'clock news show who is competing for the anchor position. As more and...

Oooooohhh I just have to tell you, actually I have to warn you, about a new restaurant in the area. I think it's called Aunt Sara's Family Restaurant and I think they are supposed to serve breakfast anytime. They don't tell you to bring your pajamas and a sleeping bag.

They or she, whatever, just opened up in the old Captain 'D' restaurant in the Marketplace of Coventry on 24. I don't know what happened to Captain 'D' but I'm going to miss his Senior specials and I do love his fried fish...

REFLECTIONS ON MEMORIAL DAY

 

As a boy growing up I spent many hours at my grandmother's house. Part of that experience was learning about my family. I particularly liked talking with her about the photographs, which she kept in places of honor on her walls: those of my parents, and of my uncle and aunt, and others in our family.

As I looked at the photographs, I discovered that my uncle served in the Army Air Corps in the Second World War and also Korea. He was an instructor in heavy...
