LIFESTYLES

ELIZABETH DAVIES: Take time to appreciate beauty - I didn’t always have a room with a view. I grew up in suburbia, my window looking out at a neighbor’s house. By Elizabeth Davies, Rockford, Ill.

LOOKING UP: Iapetus - one strange moon - One of the oddest moons of the solar system looks like a walnut. Maybe it is. But it is a black and white walnut. Actually, we’re sure it isn’t a real nut, but pictures from the Cassini spacecraft orbiting Saturn sure make you ready to grab the nutcracker. By Peter Becker, Hawley, Pa.

SUZETTE MARTINEZ STANDING: Teens do seek the sacred - Teenagers do seek the sacred. When coming of age, the big questions feel urgent. Why am I here? Why would it matter? Intern minister Erik Resley fans the adolescent embers of spirituality at First Parish Unitarian Universalist Church in Milton, Mass. By Suzette Martinez Standring, The Patriot Ledger.

KENT BUSH: Life shouldn't be about checklists -- Like many things we try to do to impress God and our neighbors, it doesn't do any more to secure salvation than tinting the windows on your car. Jesus didn't die to give us holy checklists. He died to give us freedom. Augusta Gazette (Kan.)

http://www.gatehousenewsservice.com/features/x1495153503/Kent-Bush-Life-shouldnt-be-about-checklists

LINCOLN'S FAITH: Abraham Lincoln's religion is not easily defined -- Today, 146 years after his death, the religious beliefs of Abraham Lincoln remain difficult to define and continue to be the subject of debate among scholars. Lincoln’s writings contain references to God — or a Supreme Being — but he was not baptized and never joined a church. Chris Young / State Journal-Register (Ill.)

TRAVEL: A few bites of the Big Apple -- On the corner of 5th Avenue and 36th Street in New York City, the Setai Fifth Avenue awaits. A luxury hotel/residence inside of which the decor oozes in sophistication and high style — as a Fifth Avenue residence should. Charlene Peters/ Wicked Local (Mass.)

SARA LOPINSKI: Don't trust all study results  -- When you read beyond the headlines, a different story often emerges.  Nutrition is an evolving science, so we will continue to read conflicting advice. State Journal-Register (Ill.)

http://www.gatehousenewsservice.com/features/x1950124871/Sara-Lopinski-Dont-trust-all-study-results

BERNARD LIM: What is a heart monitor? -- Dr. Bernard Lim, a cardiologist with Prairie Cardiovascular Consultants in Springfield, Ill., provides the answers on how heart monitors are used and the different types available. State Journal-Register (Ill.)

CARRIE SKOGSBERG: Strokes can strike anyone, any age -- It's hard to think in your early twenties that you may fall victim to a stroke later in life, but the American Stroke Association has found that many young people think they are a lot healthier than they really are. State Journal-Register (Ill.)

ENTERTAINMENT

JOHNNY DEPP: Alexander Stevens: Johnny Depp's fatal flaw - Remember how admirable it seemed when Johnny Depp ditched a conventional matinee-idol movie career for something edgier and more adventurous? Now, more than 25 years deep into his career and on the verge of opening another “Pirates of the Caribbean” movie, it’s a good time to look at his body of work. Upon closer inspection, not only may his career appear less impressive than you imagined, but it may also reveal what could be considered Johnny Depp’s fatal flaw — his alarming inability to truly connect with his costars. By Alexander Stevens, The Patriot Ledger.

‘PIRATES’ MOVIE REVIEW: New ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ is same old shipwreck - There’s less swash and more buckle in the treasure-free waters of the latest, and the least, “Pirates of the Caribbean,” subtitled “On Stranger Tides.” And it is indeed “strange,” but never in a good way. Perplexing is a more apt description of a movie so dark, dank and devoid of coherence that you’d swear it exists only to pillage gullible buckos of their bucks. By Al Alexander, The Patriot Ledger.

AUTHOR INTERVIEW: The Readers' Writers: Award-winning author Rick R. Reed - Rick R. Reed, to the casual observer, appears to be an unassuming, polite, and sometimes shy man unobtrusively residing in Seattle with his life partner and a Boston terrier named Lily. What lies beneath this man’s calm exterior is a mind capable of producing unforgettable tales of horror, romance and tragedy that have been compared to Stephen King, called “an established brand,” won awards and are constantly evolving. By DA Kentner, Freeport, Ill.
