DIANA BOGGIA: When yelling at your child doesn’t work, try something else - On a recent trip to the grocery store, I found myself shopping alongside a young family: a mother, father and their young boy, who looked to be around 3. As we shared the aisles together, I noticed that everyone had a job. I watched as the dad pushed the cart, the mom chose and placed items in the cart, and they both took turns yelling at their son, who moved a few paces ahead, grabbing food from the shelves, looking back at his parents, and laughing. Up and down each aisle, as they tried to grab him, they yelled “STOP!” By Diana Boggia, Canton, Ohio.

BRIAN MACKEY: A horror-filled decision over horror films --- A confession: I have never seen a zombie movie. In fact, to the best of my knowledge, I’ve only seen three horror movies to completion in my entire life. No. 1, early 1990s: “Candyman,” about an urban legend in which the title character can be called forth by repeating his name in front of a mirror, “Bloody Mary”-style. The State Journal-Register (Ill.)

STAY TUNED: Let's hear it for the girl? Maybe not - An early draft of this column started out as a review of the new fall shows that feature women in main roles. These include “Prime Suspect,” “Revenge,” “Ringer,” “Pan Am,” “Charlie's Angels,” “The Playboy Club,” “2 Broke Girls,” “Whitney” and “New Girl.” But by the time I sat down to work on a second draft, “The Playboy Club” and “Charlie's Angels” had been canceled. One minute I'm questioning the authenticity of female empowerment on a show where a male voice on the telephone gives orders, and the next it's “sorry Charlie,” you're dropped. Over at “The Playboy Club,” the only revolution happening was apparently less about sexual equality and more about the right to turn the channel. Why did these shows fail? By Melissa Crawley, GHNS.

I know it, you know it and, of course, Mr. Know It All had to see it coming, too. Clarkson is back, and this time she’s even “Stronger” than before. By David T. Farr, Sturgis, Mich.

KENT BUSH: Two Republican parties could mean two terms for President Obama - A fissure is beginning to divide the Republican Party, and that split could make life much easier for Barack Obama and the Democrats in 2012. The tea party movement helped Republicans retake the House of Representatives in the 2010 midterm elections. But it did very little to help them govern because those new tea party members are completely disgusted with the Democrats and their policies but they are also almost completely disgusted with the establishment Republicans and their policies. By Kent Bush, Augusta, Kan.

GEORGE LITTLE: B&C trophy-worthy bucks on the rise -- There are several theories on why the number of B&C trophy bucks is on the rise. One is that hunters have become more selective. The surest way to start seeing more mature bucks is to stop shooting little ones. Hunters are also taking advantage of extended seasons and manage the herd by harvesting more does. The State Journal-Register (Ill.)
