Hey, Mom: When Will I Stop Missing You?



Connie Schultz
If I could snap my fingers and travel back in time, I'd be 11-year-old me standing on third base in the field behind our house, cupping my hands around my mouth and yelling for Mom to hit me home.My mother, like most mothers, was all about coming through for her kids. Evening games of softball in our neighborhood, where she was usually the only parent who played, were no exception. Whenever she was at bat, she'd stand poised over that cardboard triangle itching for release from the pent-up frustrations of a young mother's life.

Multi-Talented: Six-Passenger Mazda5 is Parent-Friendly on a Budget



2012 Mazda5

Don't call it a minivan just because it has sliding side doors. The Mazda5 is a "multi-activity vehicle" well suited for those active families who resist the "M" word, Mazda says. And while some refer to this model as a "mini" minivan, it is actually longer than the first Dodge Caravan that launched the segment.The compact size of the six-passenger Mazda5 makes it ideal in the busy, young family's rush-about day. And while smaller than a "full size" minivan, there is complete flip-and-fold creativity to the storage space, simple step-in to all rows and a comfortable footprint for parking lots and the garage.

Bargain Priced Gas



Last week, the price of crude oil jumped to $113 a barrel, and suspiciously soon afterward, the national average for regular unleaded gasoline leaped over the $4 a gallon mark. Lost production in Libya was blamed for the gas price hike, yet even at $4 per gallon, it's really a bargain. Before you start sending me hate e-mail, let me explain. Even at $4, we are not paying the real cost of gasoline. Our federal government subsidizes the oil industry with numerous tax breaks, price protections, and research and development funding that totals billions of dollars every year. These subsidies help keep domestic oil companies competitive with international producers, and keep gas relatively cheap at the pump.

Born To Remember 9/11


 


Connie Schultz
