Back to Work

After two long holiday weekends, we can go back to the real world and get busy! So do I write about Obama taking gun control into his own hands? How about Donald Trump saying he'll behead ISIS? Or do I even start to wrap my brain around affluenza? (For the ones of you that have not caught the ...

Make a Resolution to be More Involved

As I volunteered via the Rugby Lions last Sunday evening at the Lyric Theatre I thought, "Do I want to have a New Years resolution this year?" Of course, there's the typical save more money, lose some weight, blah, blah blah all good things in theory, however not easy to stick to and seriously ...

Warm Tidings to You

The hustle and bustle of Christmas is here and it actually feels like it with this new blanket of white snow! Yah! 'Tis the Season is here and here to stay!As I write, there are only eight days until the big day. My presents are purchased, sitting beside the tree and waiting to be wrapped. But ...

One Last Rant…..

To those of you that have taken being politically correct to an art form, I hope you can live with the blood that now drips from your soiled hands. With the 14 dead and 21 injured in the ISLAMIC EXTREMIST SAN BERNARDINO TERRORIST ATTACK, you are now part of the problem. The signs were there, ...

That being the case, as you know, I didn't write an editorial on a weekly basis. It was my intent, when I used the ...

The Enemy is Amongst Us

Last week our President said ISIS is shrinking and thus their threat to the United States is diminished. Then this same shrinking Islamic Extremist Terrorist group attacks Paris and the aftermath is unconscionable.How does this affect us here? There are many that think it will come here also ...

Just Dead Wrong

In so many ways Tuesday night was good night in the City of Rugby. The Volleyball team continued their winning ways. The City Council had their budget meeting to explain why there was need to increase taxes this year for the city's part of the real estate tax levy. All the council members ...

Just Saying…

If I hear one more time from a talking head, or from an old-time politician who hears a new idea or an outside the box thought, but automatically dismisses it out of hand because it has never been done, I am gong to implode. All you have to do is look skyward and remember July 21, 1969, when ...

No Matter The Messenger, the Value Is In the Message

It is a well-known and almost instinctive response to attack the messenger when one feels that the message being delivered is incorrect, unwanted or unfair. Why? Isn't free thought the first step of learning and honing an idea, even if someone's idea is not what you feel is the best? Isn't it ...
