  • Don’t hold your breath

        Left-wingers looking for impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump will probably have a long wait.

  • Spiritual darkness lifted Donald Trump

        When Pope Francis met with our man-child president last week at the Vatican, the leader of the universal Catholic Church looked as though he’d rather be anywhere else in the universe except where he was.
         Trump was grinning like the proverbial Cheshire cat, but the Pope wasn’t smiling; not at all. We know, of course, who – among the two of them – is most respected around the world, and it certainly isn’t Donald Trump.

  • Essentials to have on your boat for a day on the water

    Being prepared for each time you are out on the water will give you peace of mind, make you a better boater, and assure a more enjoyable boating experience.

  • Rebuild our Navy

        The cruise missile attack on a Syrian airbase early last month was amazing. In a precision attack, the base was hit by 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles in 60 seconds. According to a Wikipedia article, 60 missiles were launched, but one fizzled and fell in the sea.
        Syria was able to resume launching air strikes from the base but the advance warning we gave the Russians, so they could get their personnel out of the way, also allowed the Syrians to shield some of their aircraft, reducing the damage that was done.

  • Poor baby; he’s so ‘unfairly treated’

        The appointment of Robert Mueller as Special Prosecutor over the Trump/Russia investigation certainly got the attention of the beleaguered president.
        It didn’t take long before he was feeling sorry for himself, and saying that he was being “unfairly treated,” which was actually a familiar refrain from the campaign. He’d often complain of his “treatment” for one reason or another.

  • A check-up from the neck up

    By Art Cournoyer

        Spring is here and lots of outdoor activities are suddenly competing for our time.  Grass and other landscaping needs attention, outdoor living areas need all that pollen cleaned off, and the dock and boats need to be de-winterized and readied for all the fun times with family and friends that summer weather allows.

  • We must defend our arctic claims

        May 9 is Great Victory Day in Russia. It celebrates the end of the Great Fatherland War, the European phase of what we call World War II. It marks the day Nazi Germany surrendered. The instruments of surrender were signed on the night of May 8, 1945, but the Russians celebrate Great Victory Day on May 9 because it was already after midnight, Moscow time, when the documents were signed.

  • For many, it’s Watergate all over again

        Last week, Donald Trump did his best impression of Richard Nixon yet, firing the respected FBI Director who just happened to be investigating him, and then “explaining” it about five or six different ways.
         Yes, the Greek tragedy that operates out of the Oval Office – thanks to “angry whites” – took on possibly historic new dimensions with the latest crazed antics of this bizarre regime.

  • A labor of love

        The Bedford area’s Love Letters were unveiled last week and you should really make a special trip to the Welcome Center to see them. They are beautiful! The art work on the letters is great and the center of the O is clear Lexan featuring the Peaks of Otter apparently etched into it.
