    Remember the sacrifice

    This week and next I step away from commenting in this column about the politics of our day and talk about the people who have ensured that people like you and I get the opportunity to enjoy our God given rights to live free and to express our opinions. God gave us our rights; the Constitution guarantees...

    Getting a pass

    Back in 1967 I was astonished at the reaction to the blockbuster movie, “Bonnie and Clyde.” It amazed me to hear folks cheering for the thugs of the Barrow gang and to hear folks talk about the final shootout that killed the two bank robbers ... one would have thought that superior...

    Never forget

    Auschwitz. Buchenwald. Dachau. Maulthausen. Treblinka. Sobibor. Belzec. Majdanek. Bergen-Belsen. Ravensbruck. Theresienstadt. The death camps. Nazi death camps. This past week, we saw the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Dachau by the Americans and this past Tuesday, we should have remembered...

There was nothing civil about that war as we saw brother fighting...

    Erna epitomizes the ‘American Dream’

    A Lifetime Achievement Award - let that phrase roll off your tongue and understand how much greater it tastes when it is presented to you by your peers. On March 9, one of our neighbors received that honor from the Fresno Chapter of the California Restaurant Association.

    Clintons and ethics

    When is enough enough? For years the Clintons have proven that they not only feel entitled to their power, and have proven time and again that they see themselves as better than the rest of us and above the law. My question for the Clinton loyalists is when are they going to say, “That’...
