To The Editor: By John L. Lengemann

For the past 5 years I have listened to liberals, pundits, talking heads and political leaders describe the intellect of Barak Obama as being beyond compare.

This “shield law’ legislation was purportedly written to protect journalists from being compelled by the federal government to disclose information about…

A Common Core Education by Roger Harris

There is a lot of people and legislators that are encouraging us parents to agree to our State continuing with the Common Core Curriculum.  Their basis for this appears to be “Independent Standards” that all of our schools and teachers can be compared to, and the need to give our youth the best education possible.   I think most parents and citizens want high educational standards to be set for our schools.  What I don’t think we want is to give our Federal Government the control over all of…
