  • The Affordable Care Act: Unsustainable and unlawful

    By Congressman Robert Hurt

  • Growing an economy that works

    Pencils, notebooks, backpacks, calculators – all of the essentials for heading back to school. You probably wouldn’t send your child to the first day of school without going over the check list and making sure they had everything they needed for a successful year. Likewise, when they finish school and head out on their own, you’ll want to be certain that they have the benefit of a strong economy.

  • Exploring the roots of ‘Trumpism’

        After Mitt Romney’s loss in the presidential race of 2012, the Republican National Committee carried out what it called an “autopsy” to determine how the party could produce better results in the future.
        Pardon me, but autopsies are for dead bodies, aren’t they? Well, if Republicans suspected they might be dead after 2012, what will they think if Trump goes down to the repudiating defeat he seems likely to reap?

  • We are no longer safe

      
        We have been treated to a spate of Muslim terrorist attacks and harassments aimed at Christians and Jews in the last few weeks. Last week, a Jewish Rabbi in France was stabbed by a man shouting “Allahu Akbar” during the attack. Last month, a French priest was murdered in his church, while conducting mass, by two knife-wilding Muslim unholy warriors.

        Tom Garrett — no relation to Delegate Scott Garrett — made a campaign swing through Bedford last week.

After winning a multi-candidate race for the Republican nomination, Garrett is seeking to replace Congressman Robert Hurt, also a Republican, who announced, back in late December that he would not seek reelection.

        A crowd filled the Elks National Home, Thursday afternoon as English Meadows marked the facility’s 100th anniversary. The Elks national organization sold the home to English Meadows three years ago.

  • Bench Mark

        A new bench has been placed in Centertown Plaza and dedicated to the National D-Day Memorial and those who served on D-DAY.

  • Extra Points: August 24

        The NFL has instituted new rules for the 2016 season - not too many and most won’t really make a difference.
        First, the injured reserve list. Teams no longer have to designate an injured player to return, however if a player is put on the injured reserve they have to stay there for a minimum of six weeks.
        I believe the only change there is players no longer have to be designated to return.
