Dear Annie: I am a 23-year-old man. I served in the army and deployed to Afghanistan. I was medically discharged for PTSD about two years ago.

Dear Annie: Six years ago, I divorced my alcoholic, workaholic husband and became a single parent. My ex has regular visitation, but I am the one who handles all the sick days, school conferences, injuries, etc. He never bothers. Shortly after the divorce, I had to take a job at a much lower salary. There […]
Our annual decorating contest saw many wonderful entrants, and we at The Enterprise are grateful to the families who have provided us with so much holiday cheer.

Known as The Cutest Man In The World (TCMITW) to those of you who’ve followed this thread for the last decade or so, Joe is proof positive that soulmates really do exist. I know I’ve found […]
DebraDeAngeloW The best part of last week’s story about my adventures in radio commercials is the part I didn’t tell: getting there. But first, some context. I have the bladder of a hamster. And my urgency ratio is directly linked to my stress level. The higher the stress, the greater the urgency. If I’m anxious […]
Enterprise columnist Whenever I have pictured myself as a soldier, something IÕve done many times over the years, especially during the Vietnam era, IÕve imagined myself feeling totally out of place in war.

Articles in The Enterprise are forever warning us of the imminent destruction of civilization by the coming global climate catastrophe. Yet Davisites seem reluctant to make the necessary draconian changes. So I would like to offer some suggestions. The Davis City Council should outlaw air-conditioning. The Native Americans survived for centuries without it, and so […]

It’s time for kids to head back to school and parents to a more regular routine. While some of us are always super-glad for fall, others are deeply saddened by the end of summer vacation.
