    Tourist season

    They’re coming - They’re coming. Yes, the tourists are coming and the summer season is upon us. I know there are a few in the area who complain about the impact of tourists but they seem rather narrow-minded, at best. You even hear the old joke, “If it’s tourist season...

    The Boys of Normandy

    “Get off the beach. You’ll die if you stay on the beach. Get off the beach to make room for the next wave. Get off the beach.”

    What a week

    What a week for pundits. Hillary won’t talk, won’t meet, will talk and meet, but won’t say anything. Barack Obama and his folks declare that the strategy in Iraq is working even while ISIS takes over Rimadi and the leaders of Iran are the ones being able to visit Baghdad. George...

    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.

    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...

    Judas and Hillary

    A few weeks ago I opined in this column my distrust of Hillary Clinton. A friend of mine chided me that he read my column and as he read he kept waiting to see something positive about her. I told him after his comments that I was positive she wasn’t to be trusted.

    Making earth better

    Yesterday was Earth Day. I did not celebrate it. Frankly I find the whole notion somewhat silly. The holiday came about in 1970 with a couple of people who were self-proclaimed environmentalists who decided that we needed to do something to save the world from us

    Lessons learned?

    On the 9th of this month America passed a milestone. That day marked 150 years since Generals Lee and Grant met at Appomattox Court House and signed the papers that ended the bloodiest war ever waged in our history - the Civil War. There was nothing civil about that war as we saw brother fighting...
