Time for the world to unite against terrorists

Terrorist attacks from hardline Islamic groups continue, seemingly unabated. The attacks by Islamic State in Paris are just the latest in a series of attacks that probably date back to before the 9-11 attacks on U.S. soil in 2001.

Love the visits, but not the long car ride

I loved visiting my grandparents as a kid. But I hated the trip.

My father, a retired Navy officer, drove like he was going to war — there were no stops until we either reached our destination or he needed fuel, despite whining from his three children in the back seat with full bladders and empty stomachs. It usually took my mother yanking on his earlobe to get him to make a stop.

Ingenthron speaks at Vets Day program

As a young boy scared and confused by the acts of Sept. 11, 2001, Specialist Tucker Ingenthron told his mother that someday he would go overseas to fight the people who were responsible.
Exactly 12 years later, on Sept. 11, 2013, Ingenthron arrived in Afghanistan for his tour of service with the U.S. Army.
Ingenthron, a 2012 Glencoe-Silver Lake graduate, spoke about his experience in Afghanistan and what it means to be a veteran at the GSL Veterans Day Program.
The meaning, Ingenthron said, is different to everyone.
