What causes a person to lie? Is it fear of what will happen if the truth is told? Is it indifference? Is the truth measured and sifted into divisions of importance and unimportance? If so, does that mean unimportant items don't mandate an honest response? I was contemplating these questions last weekend when we were at a local park for a sports tournament. Most of the teenagers we encounter at these tournaments are model kids. They volunteer in their communities, earn good grades in school, excel in athletics.

There's an old saying that only children and fools tell the truth. That verse seems to suggest that finding the truth among the rest of us might be as difficult as finding a needle in a haystack. Most recently, the search for the truth at the Baltimore City Detention Center has involved the use of the polygraph by the Maryland Department of Public Safety to ascertain if certain individuals knew about the corruption at that facility. One staff person has allegedly been dismissed based on polygraph results.

If you know anything about me, you know that for most of my life, I've been a competitor in one activity or another. It began with high school wrestling, then lead to bodybuilding, professional wrestling and powerlifting. So much of my personal achievement has revolved around physical ability that when that ability was recently threatened, I got smacked in the face with a hint of my true vulnerability.  I've been able to physically accomplish every challenge I've faced, by pushing through injuries, and coming out a superhero.

"Let's go," the strange man in the jeans jacket said. "Wh-what's going on?" Harriet asked Thomas Vainevner, her voice low and rushed with concern. For the first time since she had been fired as a pop singer, Harriet had managed to score a date. She had been sitting with her handsome but secretive coworker, Thomas. But as they were eating, someone had approached him, a man in his 40s with a leonine walk, hair so black it almost shone, and fingernails so dirty it was a wonder small plants weren't growing out of them.

Whose truth is the real truth? To the editor: In his guest column of Nov. 9, the Rev. Don Stevenson referred to the following passage from the Bible: “If anyone comes to your meeting and does not teach the truth about Christ, don't invite that person into your home or give any kind of encouragement.” (2 John 1:10) If my truth is my truth, and their truth is their truth, who has the real truth? What if my truth says your truth is a lie?

Letters to the Editor 12/1 Powell misses the boat on Catholics To the editor: Allan Powell in his column of Nov. 26 has exceeded even my expectations of his ability to confuse an issue. Somehow he has proposed to use a recent document - Dominus Jesus issued by the Catholic Church - to castigate the church and religion in general by trying to make faith and truth an illicit union. He says he has not read the document but is relying on an article in The Washington Post for his insight.

It's time. This is what it's all about for guys like Matt Montedoro, Ashtin Byers, Jackson Hall and Kristian Sheeley to name a few. There are 13 more like them on the Greencastle-Antrim football team. It's what playing football is all about. “When a program gets to a certain point, you get between 15-20 kids from each class every season,” said Greencastle coach Chuck Tinninis. “Most of them only get one shot - and it comes in their senior year. The moment of truth is here.” And what a shot it could be. The Blue Devils have 17 seniors who can basically control their own destiny.

Baltimore Ravens running back Bernard Pierce has come a long way from his high school days in Philadelphia. And if he has his way, he'll help make sure other kids don't have to travel the same troubled paths he has. One month after the Ravens' victory in Super Bowl XLVII, Pierce paid a visit to The Baby Sitter Child Care Center on Northern Avenue in Hagerstown on Thursday afternoon. He held a brief but poignant question-and-answer session with youth at the center before signing autographs.

I'm used to politicians lying in their campaign advertisements. What I'm not used to is campaigns acknowledging that their story lines are untrue, but perpetuating them anyway. “Mitt Romney is a felon.” “Really?” “No, but if he committed a serious crime, that would make him a felon.” “Obama is promising to send checks to people who refuse to work.” “Really?” “No, but he has the power to do it, so you have to figure that he will.” Great, politics has gone virtual.

Magician Brett Myers deals in illusions. On stage, he makes people and things appear and disappear, saws his fiancee in half, makes inanimate objects seem to move by themselves. But he's an entertainer with a message for his audience. “We really want people to understand what is illusion and what is truth,” he said. “Within every show that we do, we give that message of truth - the truth that we find in a relationship with God.” Myers and his BAM magic crew will perform this weekend at Antietam Recreation, south of Funkstown.

Don't give up on America To the editor: I know we have some problems today in our country, but I've lived through other times when our leaders got together and solved them. We will do it again, but we must get off the political posture on both sides and do what is best for America. To begin with, we must balance the budget and create a new tax code that is fair to all income levels. We still have the greatest country in the world with freedom, democracy and capitalism; but some changes in the capitalism need to happen.
