  • As families face a new economic “normal,” they are shifting toward a cultural zeitgeist, perhaps permanent, that embraces financial conservatism.

    At home, this conservative behavior is illustrated by the rise in families who clip coupons, buy store brands, frequent discount stores, and delay purchases. Many family budgets now emphasize essential purchases, reducing debt and increasing savings, and limit treats and luxuries.

  • Perhaps the best thing about writing a column is having a forum to work out what I believe.

    It’s also a great place to air my petty beefs and hope that somehow I can find a nugget of truth about God and his kingdom to help us all.

    Milton firemen and Emergency Medical people had a pitch-in Halloween supper and party Saturday night.  They played a game called “bag-it” where three bags with wearing apparel were passed around to the players.
