Online Community @ The Saline Post for Week of Dec 31, 2017

Things got off to a slow start here this round, perhaps not unlike waking the morning after New Year's Eve celebrations indulged to excess. The first article of 2018 appeared just before 5:00am, not to be joined by the second until well-into the afternoon of January 3.

But when readers finally did begin to engage with the site, they did so in force.

Taking the number one spot was "Deep Freeze: Check on Neighbors and Make Sure They Have Heat, Says Police Chief," with nine Comments. Notably, reader Comments actually served to expand the subject matter and take it in a new direction. What should you do to care for your dogs in severely cold weather and how should you do it?

You Need to Start Thinking about Your 2018 Taxes Now. Seriously.

Originally published to The Saline Post on Friday January 5, 2018 at 5:17am—

The "Tax Cuts and Jobs Act" was passed into law before just about everyone went home for the holidays last month.

In some newsrooms, that provided fodder for stories on what the more informed and pro-active among us might and would be trying to do to maximize personal advantage. Other fronts saw a battle of political press releases.

But what does "tax reform" mean to you, personally? And when should you start thinking about a 2018 tax return that won't be due for another fifteen months?

If we take a look at the human existence, we notice that through the years, one pattern is clear. We strive to maximize positive emotions and minimize negative ones. We seek out delicious food, good friendships/relationships, and fun activities, and sometimes we turn to drugs, alcohol, or medications to find happiness. We look for happiness but we often cannot explain what the word “happiness” even means to us.
