    National Dog Bite Prevention Week

        In April, the United States Postal Service promoted National Dog Bite Prevention Week.
        I am writing to ask our customers to extend their efforts and help make this “National Dog Bite Prevention Year.”
        Pet owners’ efforts are critical when you consider the number of Postal Service employees attacked by dogs last year reached 6,755 - more than 200 higher than the year before.

  • After 100 days: A strange, failed presidency

        It was President Franklin D. Roosevelt who established the standard of measuring a presidency by what is accomplished during its first 100 days.
        FDR had promised to tackle the problems of the Great Depression immediately upon entering office, and he did exactly that. He’d made it clear that he’d use every available tool of the federal government to ease the suffering of the people.

  • Don’t be complacent

        Last month I saw a news story about Russia’s plan to build new class of aircraft carriers. Right now, Russia only has one carrier, the Kuznetsov.

    Hope for the Heartland

        Early this spring, massive wildfires swept thru the rangelands of western Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas and Colorado. Hundreds of thousands of acres of pasture, thousands of miles of fence, thousands of cattle, numbers of homes were burned and 7 people lost their lives. Local families with friends and relatives that live in that area kept them informed of the situation. I would like to give some credit to the many people that helped out in this awful situation.

  • Christians, Fox News and sexual harassment

         Last week, conservative hero Bill O’Reilly, of the much hallowed “Fox News” network, was finally fired after settling numerous sexual harassment lawsuits for millions of dollars.
         Naturally, it was a case of a conservative icon being “persecuted” by liberal women. They unfairly accused him – charges he called “unfounded” – the same way such charges were lobbied at our “Make America White Again,” president, God’s own Donald Trump.
