Accountability for defying God's will

The atheists (secular humanists) hate the laws of God and reject God's authority over their lives. They have redefined when life begins and God's definition of marriage and are now trying to redefine gender.

They are also trying to replace our Creator with Mother Nature.

1) Psalm 139:13 "For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb."

Carson's integrity a winning quality

I have just finished reading Lin Warfel's Feb. 5 letter regarding Dr. Ben Carson, a presidential candidate.

Many people in this community know Mr. Warfel and of his intelligence, honesty and integrity. He has served our community in many ways.

Why are Windsor lanes still closed?

Can someone please explain why the eastbound lanes of Windsor Road between Race Street and Philo Road are still closed ?

The traffic lights at these intersections have been operating and fully functional for about two months now, yet the orange barrels and barricades remain.

Will we ever get our two-lane divided Windsor Road back?

No sympathy for draft dodgers

Last Sunday's front-page article about the draft profiled local men who were sent to Vietnam in the 1960s. Although the article was colorful, it was on the skimpy side when it came to doling out praise for those men who honored the call, served and survived deployment to Southeast Asia.

Sunday Extra: Free trade agreements present many problems

By Dr. George W. Ordal 

When President Obama rejected the Keystone XL pipeline, the company TransCanada sued the U.S. government for $15 billion under the provisions of NAFTA, the North American Free Trade Agreement.

State government earns zero rating

When elected representatives sat down to draft the U.S. Constitution, there were various legitimate concerns with many delegates on different sides of the issues. But they agreed as a group to prioritize: First establish a country, then work out other pressing issues.

TV, print are not covering the issues

Here we go again.

When Barack Obama was running for president, everything he did was "news." He was in my living room every newscast.

Same with the front page of the newspapers. If I wanted to find out anything about any other candidate, I had to hear or read what they could afford to buy time for. Or search the Internet.

Now we have Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.

Carson has skills to be president

"I think Ben Carson has the brains, wisdom, candor and heart to be a great president." So said a friend in D.C. who has known him for the past five years.

In the places where a president works, Carson has decades of experience and proven character that brought forth those assessments from my friend.

What are you waiting for? Get it done

Yesterday went much better than expected. Not quite a fun day, but in some ways a spa-like day.

Someone at my beck and call, warmed blankets, friendly, caring, helpful staff, concern for my comfort, mental peace and health. It was a surprisingly comfortable day. My experience was one I would encourage others to partake of.

And what did I do that was so close to pleasant?

Socialists covet others' wealth

Here we are again in another election cycle and the Democrats' platform has been how corporations and the rich don't pay their "fair share."

Millions of Bernie Sanders' selfish, unemployed teenager fans can't be wrong, can they?

I hate greed more than anyone and was sickened reading the Chicago public teachers contract and how NPR hosts make as much as heart surgeons.
