Several readers reached-out to me last week and raised a good question. If the feds rename Fort Pickett, will the Town follow suit and rename Pickett Court? If so, I recommend “Paul Lacks Lane.” And let’s put some traffic calming devices (speed bumps) out there.

If we let national politics ruin long-time personal relationships, that’s more of a reflection on us than the politicians.

However, if ‘friends’ start hurling insults at you or demeaming you for your political beliefs, then your relationship wasn’t as strong as it seemed. We all need to push ourselves away from the computer, turnoff the TV, put down our phone, and take a walk or run. If we spent half as much time improving our health as we do trying to win endless debates on Facebook, we’d all be in better shape -- both physically and spiritually.
