Your view: Oppose radar/lidar for local police departments

I urge all state senators and representatives to vigorously oppose SB 279 and SB 251, which will allow local police departments to use radar and lidar. Enacting these bills will spawn a huge increase in speed traps in cash-strapped municipalities desperate for more money at the expense of real highway safety. Ninety percent of the […]

Their view: Trump just pushing back against media bias

Is this my lot in life for the next four (or more) years? The night Donald Trump won the White House, I strapped in for an expected journey of defending his administration when I wished, and criticizing it when warranted, following the pattern I had set during the campaign.

Your view: Some songs for the inauguration

The editorial cartoon for Wednesday, Jan. 4, 2017, depicting the Red Army choir singing at President Trump’s inauguration struck a chord in my memory bank of melodies. Perhaps the choir will sing the Russian navy song: “Red Sails in the Sunset” or the choir will change “Let’s All Sing Like the Birdies Sing, Tweet, Tweet, […]

Your voice: Country needs to turn back to God

Reading the article last Sunday “Changes in American religion” by James A. Haught reminds me of reading Time Magazine in my high school library stating, “God is Dead.” I know you don’t “shoot the messenger,” but that was a wake-up call. Twenty-five percent of Americans have no religion. That is higher than any religion in […]

Your voice: Left-wingers showing their hypocrisy

Left-wingers showing their hypocrisy President Obama has stated: “Because when you try to sow the seeds of doubt in people’s mind about the legitimacy of our elections, that undermines our democracy. Then you are doing the work of our adversaries for them.” Hillary Clinton has stated: “We’ve been around for 240 years. We’ve had free […]

My Corner, Your Corner: Reflecting on loved ones lost in 2016 and new beginnings

As I look back at 2016, I say good-bye and good riddance. There are many who had a great 2016, and to those I say good for you and I hope 2017 is even better. Losing my mom this past April really put a damper on the rest of the year. As someone recently said […]
