Thomas said it was his first time volunteering as a driver for the event. He said the family to whom he took meals lives in a schoolhouse in the Duffield, Pa., area, with “eight or nine” disabled children, many requiring extensive care.

By CLYDE FORD Staff Writer Some days of working with dying cancer patients can be heart-breaking for oncology nurse Gail Stoner. Others can be joyous as she watches some recover. "They go through so much and it makes you realize what is important. When you come home and see some silly thing, you don't worry about it when you think about what is important," Stoner said. Stoner was named Maryland Worker of the Year in the American Worker of the Year Awards presented by Dickies Workwear.

Where is our nation headed? To the editor: The late Holy Father, John Paul II, left the world a clear understanding of what's called the "Culture of Life. " It is so sad that many citizens of the United States did not grasp this concept as applied to Terri Schiavo being denied food and water. Natural justice in a civilized society - in the past - under commonly accepted moral reasoning would classify the Florida tragedy as the direct killing of an innocent human being.

Commentary I don't mind being scammed, generally. Happens all the time. But there's something about getting scammed by a 20-year-old girl that sticks in the gizzard. To be right up front about it, I can't guarantee it was a scam. Could have been all on the level. So I'll just lay our the facts as they happened, and you can be the judge. But if, like me, you have a keen, Columbo-like mind, I have a hunch you will understand my suspicion. It's about 5:45 on a weekday, and I'm expecting company for dinner, so I bound to the door and yank it open - only to be surprised by a long-haired, blue-eyed babe who announced, in no particular order, that she was in high school, going on to college and she was working on an assignment for some class or another.

It's time for our president and some of our other leaders to quit bowing down to the minority that would want you to think this is such a really, really bad thing. As I said, it's war. It's a war we're in. At least we're not cutting their heads off, like they've done to our people.
