  • COLUMN: Why openness matters

    By LEE HAMILTON
    Guest Columnist

    One of the fundamental lessons of the Sept. 11, 2001 tragedy was that our government carried a share of blame for the failure to stop the attacks. Not because it was asleep at the switch or ignorant of the dangers that Al Qaeda posed, but because the agencies charged with our safety did not share what they knew, either up and down the chain of command or with each other. The attacks were preventable with shared information.

  • COLUMN: A northern beercation

    By VINCE LUECKE
    Editor

    It wasn’t that grand of a vacation in terms of time away from work, but a few days in southwest Michigan last week served to recharge my batteries and unlocked some of the often-overlooked attractions just to our north. It certainly whetted my appetite to return. My last week off was a self-planned “staycation.” I called it a brief but much-needed “beercation.”

  • Pet of the Week

    If you are looking for a big dog, look no further. Brody is the one.
    He is an extra-large golden retriever and Labrador mix male who loves being with people and playing outdoors.

    He is 3 years old, neutered and up-to-date on vaccines. He was adopted from the shelter when he was a year old but now his family is moving and cannot take him to their new home.

    Brody does well with other dogs, knows several commands such as speak, sit and pretty beg, is housebroken and crate-trained and loves to swim. He has never injured a cat but will chase them.
