  • Our nation’s veterans deserve recognition befitting of their sacrifice

    By Congressman Robert Hurt

  • Veterans deserve our respect every day

    America’s veterans know the meaning of sacrifice. They’ve spent weeks, months, and years away from home and loved ones. They’ve missed birthdays, anniversaries, Thanksgiving dinners, and first steps. Some have experienced physical trauma that we can see while others carry their wounds on the inside.

  • World War I: From boot camp to the battlefield

    By James F. Burns
    Professor emeritus
    The University of Florida

        Carroll Hosbrook, a farm boy from Ohio, found himself in a small French village on Nov. 11, 1918.

  • Why liberalism won’t work

    By Alan Denekas, MD
    Bedford

        Up until the late 1960s America was a pretty peaceful place.

  • Issues lost in the press this year

        If you care about public policy and the great issues facing our democracy, then you have to lament the fact that this crazy election never materialized into a serious discussion of those questions.
        Much of it had to do with Donald Trump’s insane candidacy, his preoccupation with nonsense like “building a wall,” and the media’s insistence that his antics and Hillary’s e-mails were all that was worthy of discussion.

  • Make America great again

        I don’t know, as of this writing, how the election went. I still can’t believe that both parties managed to cough up such horrible candidates and I’m sure that, no matter which of those two wretches won, we are in for an ugly four years. The only hope is that Congress will work as a restraining force, rather than an enabler for the winner. As both were nominated by a democratic process within their respective parties, they are clear indicators of the degree to which American society has degenerated.

  • Election Day Holiday

        The day after a presidential election should be a national holiday.
        It would give those celebrating the victory of their candidate the chance to recuperate. For those whose candidate lost, it would give them the opportunity to see that the sun will still come up, no matter who got elected.
        If President Obama had any sense, he would have declared that national holiday as an executive order sometime Tuesday, before all the votes were counted.
        The truth is we all deserve a break.
