Broken

Friday, April 27, 2018 by The Press in Focus

Broken homes.

The title to a household where the ruckus is over. No more arguing, just broken hearts.

But what if the household isn’t broken? It’s in the process of breaking. Endless nights of

arguing.

Endless hours of distraction. Hearts breaking. Piece by piece.

The thought of the end is stuck in your head. Not only when you

Can switch from breaking to broken,

But when you can come to closure.

Finally accept the fact that things will change. People go, but all your worry does not. Remain.

Q. Our 19-year-old son has failed out of two separate colleges. Since he came home, we have noticed that he is constantly on his phone or laptop, which he admits interfered with his college success. He is an adult, and we want him to be responsible for himself, but he thinks he may be addicted to electronics. Are there any resources available for him?

ELEMENTARY SCHOOL The American Flag

Friday, April 27, 2018 by The Press in Focus

Stars and stripes are more than a pattern

They show that we are free

These make up the most valuable symbol

That will ever be

We should honor and respect it

Each and every day

So we can wake up

Free in every way

This is more than a piece of fabric

It is honored each day and week

So we can be here

To learn and be free to speak

What our flag means to me

Is more than you would expect

It is a symbol of freedom

For all that fought to protect

Like the many people

Who died to let us be free

Review: ‘Isle’

Friday, April 27, 2018 by PAUL WILLISTEIN in Focus

Wes Anderson is a very idiosyncratic film-maker.

Consider the titles of feature movies Anderson has directed.

From his first feature, “Bottle Rocket” (1996), to “Rushmore” (1998), “The Royal Tenenbaums” (2001), “The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou” (2004), “The Squid and the Whale” (2005), “The Darjeeling Limited” (2007), “Fantastic Mr. Fox” (2009), “Moonrise Kingdom” (2012), and “The Grand Budapest Hotel” (2014), Anderson has created worlds of personalities, locations and emotions that defy description.
