Opinion | Self-defense class teaches us to build safety through community
Oct 12 2012, 11:03 AM
On my first day of Rape Aggression Defense training years ago, I was an instructor’s nightmare. I knew everything, and was anxious to prove it. I may have implied that I was there only to cover this new self defense class that my local police department was so excited about. And I thought I already knew plenty about protecting myself.
After all, I’d covered several self-defense classes for various papers, read a stack of books on the subject, and pursued, but not attained, a black belt in tae kwon do. I knew some stuff, had some skills, right?

Letters | Marriage referendum promotes freedom and families
Oct 15 2012, 8:03 AM
We find the well-funded opposition to Referendum 74, which allows marriage to all, very disturbing and surprising. It is difficult to understand how the commitment and love of one human being for another is a threat to anyone.
After over 35 years of marriage, we appreciate the value of a committed marriage and it would be very selfish and foolish of us to deny that opportunity to other citizens. R-74 promotes freedom, family, opportunity and equality, all core American (Republican and Democratic) values.
