Wolfe’s Woofer: Forgive Your Enemies
It’s time for you to do your good deed for the year,” Sherry said to me. “What do you mean by that?” My mission, as Sherry explained it, was to give old Ms. Gannet a ride to church and bring her home when the Sunday service ended. “Why do I have to do it?” “Because I promised to and I forgot that I’m going to Jim and Lisa’s wedding.” I got the old lady safely to church where she bullied me into coming in with her. The sermon for the day was “Forgiving Your Enemies.”
Letter to the Editor: The bottom of the crab bucket in football
Dear Editor, As owner of the San Pedro Pirates F.C., 2018 - 2019 closing season champions of the Premier League of Belize, I shake my head, look down, close my eyes and wish the football community and present events was just all a bad dream. Through my ﬁrst hand experience, I have seen hate, jealousy, greed, violence, corruption and backstabbing. All this from one community and one sport. I'm appalled by the difference this community, clubs, teams and individuals have against each other in this sport. It has given me no other choice but to throw out my "red card" at these circumstances.
Doctor Love: Pants on Fire
Dear Doctor Love, My marriage is in trouble, and it’s my fault. I have a habit that I know hurts my wife, yet I don’t stop. I promise to stop, but I don’t, she finds out I’m still doing it, and then I tell a lie or make an excuse to get out of it. Naturally, this hurts her even more. It has become a terrible cycle of lies and hurt. I’m disgusted with myself when I fail to stop, but I constantly look for new ways to hide my actions. Then I feel even worse when I see the look in her eyes when she knows I’m lying to cover it up.
