Great New Books

Everything Trump Touches Dies by Rick Wilson

Scalpel in hand, a conservative strategist dissects Trumpism, the Washington, D.C. swamp, and the new GOP. The autopsy report isn’t pretty. Wilson’s insider take is hilarious, smartly written, and usually spot-on.

Tailspin by Sandra Brown

Early in this suspenseful romantic thriller, “freight dog” pilot Rye Mallett agrees to fly a small plane in foggy weather into a remote area of northern Georgia to deliver a black box which some people are willing to kill for. The adventure unfolds as a laser beam causes the plane to crash. Brown’s many fans will be pleased.

The Money Shot by Stuart Woods

Blackmail drives bestseller Woods and Edgar-finalist Hall’s exciting second novel starring former CIA agent Teddy Faye. Teddy is working as a stunt man on an action film and sets out to identify and take out those behind the scheme. The authors slyly upset the readers’ expectations in a number of scenes. A tight plot, distinctive villains, and a neat resolution make this a winner.

The Washington Decree by Jussi Adler-Olsen

This book by this Danish writer is set in America. Democratic senator Bruce Jansen is elected president. When Jansen’s wife is assassinated, Jansen cracks down hard. Congress is shut down. Undocumented immigrants are deported, borders are closed, and the press is censored. This nightmarish portrait reveals how easily democracy can slide into autocracy, scaring the apathy out of readers.


Because of age-related changes to the eyes and diseases such as cataracts, diabetes or glaucoma, older people are susceptible to problems with night vision. First, talk to your optometrist about night-driving glasses even if you don’t wear glasses during the day. If you’re getting new glasses, consider an antireflective coating to help reduce glare. If you are having cataract surgery, ask about getting an aspheric intraocular lens, which improves contrast sensitivity-though it’s not covered by Medicare or insurance. When you are driving at night-make sure that your headlights, windows and mirrors are clean, use your window defoggers in bad weather, slow your speed, and turn on your high beams more often.

Stingy Schobel Says

Fees to watch out for when buying a home, especially with mortgage rates at a seven-year high: Lender fees include appraisal, credit report and processing charges. You may also be charged flood certification, tax service and other fees-ask what they actually pay for and if any can be eliminated or reduced. Escrow fees pay the agent who takes in money, disburses it and records paperwork. Title fees pay to make sure that your home has no ownership issues-but other fees may be included which can possibly be reduced or eliminated. Government fees are transfer fees which can vary widely. Real estate fees may include pest, home, well and septic inspections, soil reports and other services and are paid by the buyer or seller. Transaction coordination fee pays for someone to handle all the real estate paperwork and usually is not negotiable, but you can ask your real estate agent to pay it.

Library Laugh

A Sunday school teacher was discussing the Ten Commandments with her five and six year olds. After explaining the commandment to ‘Honor thy father and thy mother,’ she asked, ‘Is there a commandment that teaches us how to treat our brothers and sisters?’

Without missing a beat, one little boy answered, ‘Thou shall not kill..’
