Those thorny issues will be the focus of a public lecture, “Intelligent Systems: Design and Ethical Challenges,” by Phi Beta Kappa visiting scholar Barbara Grosz on Monday, Feb. 27, at 4:30 p.m. in McCardell Bicentennial Hall, room 216.

Letter to the editor: A&P advertisement shows times, prices have changed

Posted on February 23, 2017 |
By Samford Rouse



On a recent weekend, I was looking through a box of miscellaneous items when I came upon an A&P store ad for grocery and meat prices and also produce.

The ad was 35 years old. It was in a local paper dated July 4, 1982. I worked for the A&P company for 35 years. The month I retired was August the same year.

Now, people have to work two or three jobs to keep themselves afloat to make an honest living. The prices now have doubled and tripled since, and so hasn’t everything else.

Gregory Dennis: Days and nights with a naked lady

Posted on February 23, 2017 |
By Greg Dennis



I’ve been playing a lot lately with a naked lady.

Well, she’s not completely naked. She’s wearing a G string. Also A, D and B strings, and a high and low E string, too.

When the Montreal-based guitar company Mackenzie & Marr decided several years ago to honor folk and western singer-songwriter Ian Tyson with a signature guitar line, the Ian Tyson Limited Edition quickly sold out.

Ways of Seeing: Grief support group was invaluable

Posted on February 23, 2017 |
By Ellen Flight



I was not prepared for the overwhelming, full-body experience of grief. Before my father died in January 2016 I thought I understood grief. 

My father had been a hospice patient for almost 20 months and I had prepared for his death.  We had had so much warning including some “near misses.” I experienced something called “anticipatory grief.” I cried so much in my car I joked that my car was going to rust from the inside out. It lulled me into thinking I had dealt with my grief beforehand. But I discovered that’s not how it works.
