Brock: Remembering the assassination of President Kennedy
Next Friday marks the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. People of my generation all seem to remember when they heard the news. I was a 7-year-old living on Elmendorf Air Force Base in Anchorage, Alaska, where my dad was stationed. I don’t remember...

Brock: Winter wisdom comes from experience
They say there is a fine line between genius and insanity, and since I consider myself one of the five smartest people I know, it makes sense...

Brock: Shutdown isn't working, time to move on
Humorist Will Rogers once said, "Don't let yesterday use up too much of today," which certainly are commonsense words the U.S. House of Representatives should consider. Obamacare may be a good or a horrible law depending on how you look at it, but it is a law that was passed by...

Brock: Board avoids duties by learning how to avoid media

Brock: A summer vacation without the words 'if' and 'could'
By the time you read this on Friday morning, despite gobs of sunscreen, I should be slightly sunburned. Mosquitos will have ignored the world's...

Brock: A lot of impossible has happened at Dickinson State
Since I moved to my new house three years ago, most of my mornings begin with an hour walk on a route that includes the perimeter of the beautiful Dickinson State University campus. Thursday morning, as I admired the finely manicured grounds, two thoughts came to mind.

Brock: Thank you, Roughrider Commission
Roughrider Days Fair and Expo truly is a rodeo and so much more. This year's event began with a youth rodeo on June 8, got into full swing with the carnival and concluded with last night's fireworks. Roughrider Days is a true community event with something for everyone. Anyone...

Brock: White House scandals aren't exactly a new development
Scandals, cover-ups, half-truths and lies coming from the White House are nothing new to this child of the '60s. Judging by the time spent on...

Brock: Remembering my 3 mentors on Father's Day
Three of the best mentors I've had are the fathers in my life. Good mentors are folks who you learn from, not so much what they say but more about the way they live their lives. My dad, rest his soul, taught me a man's word is his bond and to treat others like you would want to be...

Too much time spent on speech
President Barack Obama's speech to schools across America last week was welcomed by Republicans and his opponents like an indoctrination speech from Karl Marx himself. Opponents believed his was a diabolical plan to embed liberal views to a captive junior audience free from parents,...

Don't forget about all of the good
This year has been an extraordinary year when it comes to local hard news on the front pages of The Dickinson Press. There have been countless stories that would qualify as what I would consider the story of the decade. Most of which have not portrayed our communities in a positive...

Changes in race relations
When I moved from Alaska to Arizona at the age of 8, I noticed a few things right away. Tucson's "dry heat" was hotter than any day in Anchorage, cactus needles were sharper than pine needles, and not everyone looked like me. Compared with Alaska 1964, Arizona had a larger blend...
