The Meeting   Funny how, when the weather changes, it brings about relaxed feelings. A feeling that indicates there is a pause in the day from all responsibilities and demands. It rains in Atlanta on the regular — especially in the late summer and early fall. The bright colors of the trees and grass open up to the sky’s moisture, […]

BY LOUIE OVERSTREET The race in Nevada’s 4th Congressional District pits Cresent Hardy against his predecessor, Steve Horsford, in a rematch of their 2014 contest — when Hardy won by a slim margin of about 3,000 votes. November’s election figures to be a nail-biter of its own. The stakes are sky-high in this race, so look for it to be a bare-knuckle brawl. Two factors allowed Hardy to […]

PEACE: Hold on to Faith

  I have often asked myself, “How do I find peace when there is no peace?” Many of us find the peace we seek by going to church or simply connecting with the higher power through prayer and the study of scripture. But when surrounded by obstacles in day-to-day life, it is sometimes very hard to reclaim our “in motion” peace. The peace […]

Meet Zena and Maximus One man, one woman, one destiny. Before they meet, take a journey into their inner dialogue. ZENA If one more person asks me how to spell my name, I am going to go off. Maybe he didn’t hear me. I don’t know why I always sit by people who want to have a conversation […]

My America! BY ERIC TROY, M.A. On July 4, we celebrated our country’s 242 years of independence from the British Empire and adoption of the Declaration of Independence by the Continental Congress. There were parades, fireworks, cookouts, concerts and the all-American pastime of baseball. But one of the most important activities is honoring family. However you define family, we should follow the impulse to pay homage to those who paved […]

You Ain’t Got Squat Coming If You Don’t Vote

BY LOUIE OVERSTREET For 37 years, dating back to my days in Alaska, I have written about the importance of voting. Thus, I am ashamed to admit how many times I have heard the excuse that “My vote doesn’t count” — mostly from people who look like me. First, I used to tell these non-voting knuckleheads that a Civil War was fought to free us from bondage […]

PEACE: Your Best Self

Filed under Community, Peace

  Many of us are our own worst critics. We examine ourselves from the reflection of expectations that surround us. Judging personal excellence against an imaginary status quo is a false measurement that cannot fulfill your eternal soul — the soul that breaks through the barriers of restraint for our own truth to be revealed. The courageous soul is one that possesses the self-confidence […]

If You’re A Senior Like Me, Then It’s No On 3!

BY LOUIE OVERSTREET My opposition is based on two factors: 1) It doesn’t rise to the level of amending the Nevada Constitution; and 2) it will very likely cause rate increases. The latter is the last thing we need in Nevada, given the cost to cool homes and businesses in the summer. Ballot Question 3, if approved, would dismantle Nevada’s existing electricity system — one of the most […]

PEACE: Stay the Course

  The experiences and encounters in our personal lives are a sign that the road we travel is ever-changing. The evolution of the universe exposes the truth we must face: the real and sometimes unpleasant reality that our lives will always change, and the only safe route is to stay the course. Routines give us peace. The routine of knowing that unconditional love […]
