  • Good news! Thanks to the marvels of modern science, we now know that forgiveness is not only good for the soul, but it’s good for the body, too.

    According to results from a forgiveness study conducted at Stanford University, those who go through “forgiveness interventions” — sessions in which people who have been hurt are encouraged to develop more positive feelings toward their offenders — can improve cardiovascular function, lessen chronic pain, relieve depression, lower blood pressure and improve overall health.

  • Birds can be great fun to watch, but they also provide the gardener with some valuable services, such as eating pest insects and spreading seeds. Their songs are typically musical and pleasant.

    Some may argue, however, that the nuisance of pecking summer tomatoes or stealing berries outweighs the bonuses. I think we need to balance the pros and cons of everything.

  • There’s usually no shame connected to physical illness. If you develop diabetes or cancer or heart disease, you can usually find the resources and support groups to help you cope.

    When you are dealing with mental illness in a family member, however, there is often a stigma attached. People are sometimes less willing to seek help when the illness is mental rather than purely physical. That’s when an organization such as NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) can be of great help.

  • Sanderson is the Cactus Capital of Texas. It is located in the hill country northwest of San Antonio, and the Big Bend National Park on the Rio Grande River. It is desolate, out-of-the-way, with limited amenities, but most of its inhabitants choose not to leave. Unless something disturbs their lives. It was even more so in the 1970s. Such is the case with Llewellyn and Carla Jean Moss. But that’s getting ahead of our story as told in “No Country for Old Men,” one film which is certain to win more than one Oscar at this year’s Academy Awards.

    Being near a voodoo temple might be unsettling for some, but Elizabeth Zarantonello is looking forward to it.

    Elizabeth, 15, a sophomore at Bethlehem High School, is in Haiti with her father, Joe Zarantonello, his friend and his friend’s daughter to take supplies to St. Francis Xavier Parish, which twins with St. Joseph Parish, Bardstown. St. Joseph School raises money for St. Francis Xavier every year through Pennies from Heaven, and Elizabeth said she is looking forward to seeing how the money helps the remote area.
