  • Newspapers: The future is now

    Changes are coming to almost all businesses in today’s world, and the economy is behind many of those changes. We see people doing things differently in the way they provide services, and often, those changes are not for the better.

    In our business here at The Springfield Sun, we realize we are part of a very different industry these days than just a few years ago. In fact, things are changing by the minute in the newspaper business in our country and even around the world.

  • The promise and the decision

    When you get married you become as one with your wife or husband. What you do affects him or her as surely as it affects you. You’re responsible to that person by a bond of love. That love demands you make every decision in your life centering on protecting that relationship.

It was the largest column I ever put together, but it could have been several times that size. I spent about five hours relaying questions from these two totally different generations.
