Let me just point out up front that “Good Boys” may be about three sixth-grade boys, but it’s definitely not a kid film. It carries an R rating for good reason, primarily an inordinate use of a certain four-letter word that has become such a mainstay of the contemporary American lexicon that…

Q. Dear Neil: The enclosed plant came into our yard beneath our backyard fence. It grows about 3 feet tall and I’m wondering how to stop its spread. What is it?

In 2008, I discovered my mother’s three-volume diary from a family journey taken in 1969. Mom was widowed with five children under the age of 20, and yet planned the trip herself at a time when European travel was just beginning for Americans. 

Many pet owners have found themselves in difficult situations in which they know something is wrong with a pet, but the veterinary clinic is closed. How do you know when it’s a true emergency?

As hunters and lovers of the outdoors, we all have places near and dear to our hearts. These are places that the mere thought of brings a smile and rekindles great memories. Red River County in northeast Texas is such a place for me.

The Berean Bible Club met Sept. 3 in the Fireside Room at First Baptist Church at 2 p.m. with eight members present. Those present were Melonese Bonner, Doris Bryant, Joan Grimes, Donna Komma, Brenda Learned, Betty Moss, Gloria Reynolds and the Rev. James Barnes. President Moss started the m…

Years ago, when Paris had two or more video stores like Hastings, Blockbuster, etc., I used to occasionally write an extra long video column, divided into three categories somewhere along the lines of “Great,” “Good” and “Real Dogs.” This column, I discovered, was popular with my readers, ma…

Heart failure is a major concern in human medicine. It is a leading cause of death and enormously expensive. Mapping out the genes that play a role in heart failure provides science with a foundation of understanding which can be built on and may lead to new treatments.

The Hunting Club Membership was gathered in the large round corner table in Doreen’s 24 HR Eat Gas Now Café by the time I arrived on that gloriously rainy morning. It had been hot for the past month, and triple digit temperatures was the weatherman’s main topic until a little cool front drop…

Q. Dear Neil: In doing some trimming last week I removed a branch from low on the trunk of a tree. I found a hollow core filled with “goop.” It seemed to follow the limb up a good ways. I’m concerned another tree may be similarly affected. What should I do? I’m worried about structural damage.

OK, so I have a confession to make: I thought I would review “Angel Has Fallen” because the two preceding it (“Olympus Has Fallen” and “London Has Fallen”), both starring Gerard Butler, I thought were incredibly mediocre, by-the-numbers action thrillers. And I was sure this would be the same…

OK, so I like to review at least one shark movie every summer. It just doesn’t seem like summer if I don’t. And I thought for a while we weren’t going to get one, and then came “47 Meters Down: Uncaged,” which seems like a terribly unwieldy title for any film. But see it and you’ll understand.
