    Get over it, Trump is our president

  • Time to come up with reasonable solution

    What if the debate over health insurance was about what we support instead of what we oppose? What if the discussion included all 535 members of Congress instead of just those who happen to belong to the party in power?

    Memories rush back for veteran after honor flight
    Editor:

    As I watched the Memorial Day Concert every year, this one — May 28, 2017  — had more of an emotional effect than ever before. I had more memories of my tours in Korea and Vietnam as a young Marine now that I’m an older retired U.S. Marine.
