  • Pay tribute to Daddy on Father’s Day

    Our Daddy, Jack Caskey, left this world on May 15, 2015, after having been in hospice care since September 2014.

    First of all, my sincere prayer is that every daughter has a wonderful father in their life. I know that I am looking through rose-colored glasses, if I think this is always true, but my sisters and I were the blessed ones.

    Daddy was an amazing man, to his children, to many, many Boy Scouts, to many children and young people whom he worked with in his beloved church.

  • Fathers need to be present every day for their children

    Sadly, too many Americans are growing up without the presence of a father. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 24 million children live in homes without their biological fathers.

    The positive impacts of having dad around are numerous, such as better social/emotional and academic functioning and fewer behavioral problems.

    Children in absent-father homes are almost four times more likely to be poor. In 2011, 12 percent of children in two-parent families were living in poverty, compared to 44 percent of children in single-mother families.

    Some of the best times I had as youngster was tagging along with my father, the late Jim Howey, as he called high school football games every Friday night during the season.
