I was deeply sadden by the passing of Noel Phifer, 90, last week. It was a loss of another great community leader, who helped shape generations of people through his work as a school teacher and administrator as well as a mentor and community volunteer.

“Free-range kids.” I heard the term recently, and it took me a while to compose myself after the laughter. Free-range kids seems to be a new derogatory term where parents allow their children to run around unattended or not on a short enough leash. Parents can now be chastised by police and society for being bad parents. How dare...
