  • Column: Listen as Clinton parses words on Comey’s e-mail testimony

    At a hearing in early July, members of Congress asked FBI Director James Comey why he had not recommended indicting Hillary Clinton for mishandling classified information in her e-mails.
    Comey said he didn’t believe Clinton’s reckless, negligent handling of e-mails – his description – rose to the level of lawbreaking. He was asked if Clinton had lied to the FBI during its investigation, which would have been a federal crime in itself. No, he said.

  • Column: Finally, Phil Noble and I can agree on something

    I would first like to congratulate Phil Noble for Sunday’s article headlined “Buckets of highway money, corruption aplenty.”
    Mr. Noble has written many articles that my neighbors and myself read and question where he is coming from. However, this one article gives me some encouragement for his future writings.
    I am a registered Republican but vote according to the person in question.
    From 1960 through 2012, I demonstrated, sold and trained customers with the use of high-quality measuring tools in the South.

  • Letter: U.S. has never been so divided

    I have never seen America – that’s every town and state – in such a warring way. No one seems happy. They are all mad.
    Do you not see this? Turn on your local TV station and see all the horror in your own town. It’ll scare you!
    There is no unity. America has never been so divided.
    Don’t blame Donald Trump. This has happened under Democrats. Phil Noble, y’all were going to unify us. What happened?

  • Letter: Set aside Trump’s behavior problems

    The case against Donald Trump can be summarized as follows:
    He is a “mouthy” New Yorker.    He is rude. He doesn’t listen to advice. He is not a true Republican. He is a loose cannon. We just don’t like him. His hair is disgraceful.
    I think we can ignore the last two charges.
    As to the others, here are some thoughts to put them in perspective.
    Don’t ignore the message because of the messenger. His message resonates with a large number of Americans, so deserves to be considered.

  • Letter: Truth suffers when perception is reality

    Parrots only repeat what they hear. They do not know or need any facts about the things they hear and repeat.
    Greg Summers’ great news report on the Let’s Talk forum in Lancaster confirms this truth.
    The Black Lives Matter crowd has created a narrative and refuses to allow facts to enter the discussion. Our local citizens and their leaders also do not want the truth to enter their discussions. They repeat only the narrative that the TV news reports.

  • Column: Mulvaney didn’t back flooded S.C. farmers

    Mick Mulvaney is not fit to serve in the U.S. Congress. After he was first elected, hundreds of his supporters became what I refer to as political trash.
