A Thai soccer team has been trapped in a cave now for over 9 days. Heavy rainfall has caused cave waters to rise trapping them, 1.4 miles in and ½ mile deep in the cave.

Living in the shadow of Naval Base Kitsap in Bremerton, WA, has provided me with some insights into my community. Many of my art students come from military families stationed here. I don't discuss politics with any of them, though I suspect a number of ideological differences based on some of the things the kids say.
What I can't ever fault is the dedication and love these families have for our country, and…

There is a custom for eating Moon pies with RC Cola, although the origin of this is unknown.
He also had a long held…Continue
