'The Good Catholic': It's a Matter of Faith
By Michael S. Goldberger,
02:01PM / Friday, September 15, 2017
Filmmaker Paul Shoulberg's "The Good Catholic" is a convenient, pocket-sized edition of ruminations just right for the soul in search of a quick philosophical challenge. While there's nothing new about this tale of temptation and the emotional tumult it sets in motion, the general quality of the human beings it brings to the fore proves most arresting.    There is a cathartic honesty in the story's perplexity ... an interesting look at faith as an improver of self and society.   Meet Zachary Spicer's Daniel, the nice young man who became a priest just in time to give his dying father last rites.

By Bill Schmick,
03:46PM / Thursday, September 14, 2017

The cumulative cost of weather continues to escalate and with good reason.   Before you leap to the conclusion that global warming is the culprit, let me lay out some facts. Coastal storms are no more (or less) frequent an event now than they have been throughout our history. So what gives?   The answer lies in population growth and demographics within our own society. A few years ago, a study funded by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, found that although
