Horse therapy (07/01/02)
There's something special about kids and horses. And special kids need a special horse. As soon as she hits the saddle, little Courtney, a resident at the Faith, Hope & Charity home for profound mental disability children, sparks to life.

She is full of questions and so many pats and hugs for her patient mount that she can hardly be convinced to make way for the next rider...

Common sense in religion issue (07/01/02)
We look to parents and churches to pass on out religious beliefs, and would hardly want the public schools to be responsible for making our choices of religious beliefs for us.

TO THE EDITOR: The president and our other leaders should please support an appeal from the ill-considered decision of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in ruling that "in God we trust" renders our Pledge of Allegiance unconstitutional.
