Column: The truly awesome power of music
The majority of the songs and poems were written by those who had been in the camps and the ghettos, many of whom did not survive their ordeal.

Councillor's column: Community mailboxes are unfortunate reality
As most of you know, mail delivery is changing from door-to-door delivery to street mailbox pick-up. In 2015, this initiative is starting across the Hamilton Mountain, including Stoney Creek, and will be coming to lower Stoney Creek afterwards.

Column: The faulty transmission in my head
Now I know what you’re thinking: last day of vacation, still asleep at an appropriate time to receive a phone call, not quite with it… You’re all thinking that I spent the night before celebrating a little too much and was reaping what I sowed by way of a bout of brown bottle flu. Well, you’re all wrong. My previous evening was a dry as a temperance meeting in the desert.

Column: My Christmas traditions, old and new
When I was a kid, my Christmas morning alarm clock was always the sound of my brother’s running feet, bursting excitedly from his room to run down the hall to peek into our parents’ room where Santa was kind enough to bring our stockings. He’d then run back and get me out of bed so we could both hurry to get our sister before descending on our exhausted parents like a pack of crazed dogs.
COMMUNITY COLUMNIST: Managing your grief at Christmas
We feel it several weeks before December arrives, and once that date is here, the anxiety we feel tends to heighten as we realize we must find a way to get through this Christmas season while dealing with the death of our loved one.
Column: Only six thinking days left ’till Christmas
Every year I’m asked: “What do you want for Christmas,” and every year my answer is usually the same: “I haven’t really thought about it yet.” You could see how frustrating that would be in late November, or early December, but when the 20th hits and I still don’t have an answer it’s downright infuriating.
