Your View: Guest Column - Vote for those who will serve the people

Somewhere along the historic line political roles have been reversed.  I was always taught that every elected public servant from either political party starting from the President of the U.S. on down to the City Council member were to report and serve the people they represented.

S. presidents.

Your View: Guest Column - About this ‘end of life’ counseling ...

Those wild and wacky Progressives are at it again.  Years ago, one of their leading thinkers, Dr. Paul Ehrlich, wrote a book called "The Population Bomb" which predicted the Earth would run out of space for people by 1980.

Clarence Page: Obama's second-term slide mostly about us, not him

As President Barack Obama heads into the final half of his final term, many of us Americans wonder whatever happened to the fresh promise of that cheerfully charismatic optimist who dominated the political stage back in 2008.
