  • Obama opens himself up for criticisms

    Anyone who is familiar with my writings/ranting, knows that I have been critical of President Barack Obama.

    I do not apologize for my criticisms, because I feel they are justified. President Obama opens himself up for criticism through his behavior, and more often, his speech.

  • Free speech does not exist in Islam

    I recently saw another “Coexist” bumper sticker. The car had an Obama/Biden sticker, also. The news from France and around the world proves that Muslims do not believe, teach or practice this motto.

    The driver of that car has deceived herself by any attempt to believe that motto. That person has placed herself at a severe disadvantage with the Muslims. She believes something that is not true and will not happen. It is the feeling that matters.

  • Rural mail will suffer with more mail plant closures

    A friend of mine from South Dakota noted that the U.S. Postal Service delivered a lump of coal to many small towns last Christmas when it proceeded to eliminate overnight mail in most of the nation in 2015. That was a good description.

    USPS will slow delivery officially by one day for first-class and periodicals mail. Many members of Congress have asked it to hold off. But USPS is plowing ahead.

    It is time for lawmakers to consider how rural and small town mail is suffering.

  • Noble twisted facts to defend Obama

    This is my first letter of the new year and my New Year’s wish didn’t come true. I wished that all liberals would be sent to an island up near Greenland, where they could sit around a campfire and blame former President George W. Bush for all that is wrong in their lives. Well, maybe next year.

  • Christmas basket fund exceeds $10k goal

  • Lady Vols edge Cheraw girls, stay unbeaten in region play

     In a pair of Region IV-AA games which went to the wire, Andrew Jackson split its road games with Cheraw High on Tuesday, Jan. 13.

    AJ girls coach Dennis Farmer said the Cheraw girls would be very quick, aggressive, athletic and a challenge for the eighth-ranked Lady Volunteers.
