No sane local official who has hung up an empty stocking over the municipal fireplace is going to shoot Santa Claus just before a hard Christmas.
I've also committed my time and resources to many local organizations like Christmas in April Catholic Community Services and Hudson County Meals on Wheels.
In most communities it is illegal to cry 'fire' in a crowded assembly. Should it not be considered serious international misconduct to manufacture a general war scare in an effort to achieve local political aims?
I intend to travel to Okinawa and to visit with Okinawa officials and the citizens of Okinawa at an early date. I will send my best analysis of that situation including the local attitudes back to Washington to the government there.
Greater personal choice individually tailored services stronger local accountability greater efficiency - these are all central to the new direction of travel we have set for our public services.
You know among people who kind of travel a lot and have exposure to the United States and some other countries they do have accounts but you know Russia is not exactly the place with multiple language skills so local networks kind of have an edge.
The best way to travel abroad is to live with the locals.
Local economies are suffering as people spend more on fuel and less on consumer goods and travel.
As both a local resident and a parent with a CF-afflicted child I'm thankful for companies like Canon Chase and Outback who believe that giving back to the community is critical to their role as corporate citizens.
Pretty soon we'll have robots in our society you're going to have a lot of automated processes that used to be done by people - this is happening. Society and technology is changing so fast and the impact of the change on society and technology is global not local.
I was very inspired by my mother. She was a vocal teacher and sang in a band and my first memories of her were going out with her on the local circuit.
There are ways we can go do a better job of educating young moms and dads about the vital role they have as the child's first teacher. I think there are ways in which we can partner with local school districts and states to do a better job to provide nutrition options at school.
Intensity like signal strength will generally fall off with distance from the source although it also depends on the local conditions and the pathway from the source to the point.
I really think more fledgling novelists - and many current and even established novelists - should get out into the real world and cover local politics sports culture and crime and write it up on deadline.
I grew up in Baltimore. And yes I am a big sports fan especially when it comes to my local teams.
Traditional Albanian society was based on a clan system and was further divided into brotherhoods and bajraks. The bajrak system identified a local leader called a bajrakar who could be counted on to provide a certain number of men for military duty.
Something's happened in our society which I don't think is beneficial and that's that you see the public being fed box-office news. Newscasts now every local station - I've been traveling around the country a lot and you see the local news and they give box-office reports.
I applaud the American Cancer Society for all they do to eradicate smoking. Their local state and national efforts help to discourage young people from taking up this deadly habit and the resources they provide have helped numerous smokers quit.
I've traveled around the country and I read local newspapers and all of that and it's a sad sad thing to go from city to city and see the small newspapers and they're tiny. They're tiny not only in size but also in scope.
Anyone working for a big company might be skeptical that a large business or even a strictly online business can form the same kind of friendly loyal relationship with customers as a local retailer. I'm saying it's already been done because I lived it.
Just about every children's book in my local bookstore has an animal for its hero. But then only a few feet away in the cookbook section just about every cookbook includes recipes for cooking animals. Is there a more illuminating illustration of our paradoxical relationship with the nonhuman world?
Appreciate the power of rumor often malicious no matter how preposterous within the local populations you are seeking to help.
If we can produce more ethanol and bio-diesel to help fuel our vehicles we will create jobs boost local economies and produce cleaner burning fuels. This will keep dollars here at home where they can have a positive impact on our economy.
I think he was absolutely right not to go to UN last week... First things first - that is values and people here in their local communities and remembering all politics is local and trusting people more.
