ROBERT MANN: Aspiring to be a fool - In my dog-eared and ever-expanding notebook of quotations, one statement by St. Francis of Assisi has consistently been revisited: “For the Lord said to me, that he wanted me to be a fool and a simpleton, the like of which was never seen before.” The words of Paul in the letters to the Corinthians echo a similar line: “For the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.” By Robert Mann, GHNS.

MARKETTA GREGORY: Coffee can prayers - In downtown Bloomfield, N.Y., just a stone’s throw away from the post office, sits a bench with an old coffee can on it. On the outside of the can is written an offer that many can’t refuse – it’s a place for people to put their prayer requests. By Marketta Gregory, GHNS.

FAMILY MATTERS: Is your child bossy — or a bully? - I am now concerned that her leadership skills have evolved into bossy, demanding behavior, with the potential of bullying when she doesn’t get her way. How can I help her to stop being bossy, while continuing to nurture her spirit? By Diana Boggia, Canton, Ohio.

DAN SEABORN: Kids aren't 'handling' divorce -- That’s what I find interesting about this whole story and what I want to focus on. Everybody believes kids today are so resilient that they can handle their parents living together or getting a divorce, but often times they don’t handle it well at all. Kids want security! Holland Sentinel (Mich.)

VET RECIPES: Vietnam vets remember the ‘ambogo’ burger -- We have Vietnam vets pestering food writers for umami recipes, especially around Memorial Day when memories are stimulated. The advice is to fly out to Little Saigon in Los Angeles. Or, try to replicate one at home. (It’s cheaper, no bag fees.) Canton (Ohio) Repository

JIM HILLIBISH: Try Armenian Potato Salad, and forget the mayonnaise  -- Armenians love grilled meats, especially lamb in olive oil and rosemary or mint. They set up portable charcoal grills on roadways to feed travelers, often in kebabs. Canton (Ohio) Repository

GEORGE LITTLE: The best things about the outdoors are the friends -- Friends like that take pictures of your “big moment.” They don’t compete with you. When you’re doing something you learned from one of them, their voices are plain as day, even after they’re gone. The State Journal-Register (Ill.)

MEN IN BLACK REVIEWS:
- Movie review: Will Smith energizes a weak-scripted 'Men in Black 3' - Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones reprise their ancient roles as Agents J and K in an adventure in which the renowned alien hunters travel back in time. Josh Brolin plays a younger, meaner version of K. By Al Alexander, The Patriot Ledger.

- Movie review: 'Men in Black 3' is a little musty - "MiB3" has its moments, and better than "MiB2," but the alien-fighting franchise doesn't seem so fresh. By Bob Tremblay, MetroWest, Mass.

FARR SIDE: Hall, Aiken equally deserved ‘Apprentice’ nod - If nice guys do finish last, it was fitting to see Clay Aiken and Arsenio Hall sitting together in front of Donald Trump on the finale of “Celebrity Apprentice.” By David T. Farr, Sturgis, Mich.

STAY TUNED: Real 'Mad Men' on 'The Pitch' - On AMC's award-winning series “Mad Men,” the advertising business of the 1960s is populated by angst-filled men (and a few women) in sharp suits who toss back drinks mid-afternoon while creating clever ways to sell things. The series and its characters have made an impact on popular culture from reigniting interest in ‘60s design and fashion to stirring debate about nostalgia for the era. It would seem easy then, to imagine that AMC's new docuseries “The Pitch” is meant to capitalize on the idea that ad agencies are intriguing places to work. After watching a few episodes, I have to agree. By Melissa Crawley, GHNS.

Business

MAKING CENTS: Planning for succession of the business - Small businesses are often credited as being a strong driver of our economy, and many are owned by one person. You may own one yourself, or have at least one solely owned business as a supplier of products or services for your home or business. In my experience, very few of these have a plan to deal with the succession of the business in the event that they can't come to work some day.  By John P. Napolitano, The Patriot Ledger.
