  • It’s time for America to reassert political dominance overseas

    There is no doubt that ceding international diplomacy to China and Russia would be highly detrimental to U.S. national security.
  • Biden's budget unaffordable
    Americans have now experienced well over a year and a half of inflation above 5 percent. Costs of rent, groceries and services continue to rise. Wages cannot keep up. Last year, the Administration committed to working in a bipartisan fashion to address this serious problem, noting the budget must complement monetary policy. Instead, Democrats rushed a reckless tax-and-spend agenda through Congress rolling out $500 billion of subsidies and hundreds of billions in new tax increases.
  • Nikki Haley to Iowa: GOP can't afford to miss in primary
    The first presidential primary debate is four months away. The Iowa caucuses, nine. Looking in on the country from outside in the Washington Beltway, some have already concluded that it’s too late and that the primary is already two-man race. Trump has more than 10 times the support for Haley in the RealClearPolitics average. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who hasn’t yet declared, leads the former ambassador by a factor of six.
  • Report: Biden’s energy plan costs jobs, ratepayers; losses would be in the thousands for jobs, investment
    The Buckeye Institute, an Ohio-based policy group, examined what it called Biden’s idea to revive the Clean Power Plan. This was initially an Environmental Protection Agency rule issued during the Obama administration, rolled back by former President Donald Trump and eventually vacated by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2022.
  • History and education in those Highland hills of yore, Part 7
    Ladies and gentlemen, we've reached the seventh offering in this series on history and education in Highland County back in the early 1800s.
  • Just stop it
    I thought adulthood would let me make choices as long as they were within my means.
  • A sermon for Divine Mercy Sunday
    Christians around the world are celebrating the "Divine Mercy Sunday." How did this come about? Why is it important? 
  • Friends of the Highland County Dog Pound grateful for Greenfield Eagles’ donation
    A huge thank-you to the Fraternal Order of Eagles, Paint Aerie #1325 of Greenfield for their most generous donation to Friends of the Highland County Dog Pound.
  • We need a new Magna Carta
    Too many people fear a Convention of the States under the mistaken impression that it will lead to a loss of rights, but with Democrats already targeting the First Amendment’s free speech and religious rights, and aiming to eliminate the Second Amendment altogether, we need to focus instead on what we could lose if we do nothing.
  • The Lower Energy Costs Act
    From the gas pump to the grocery store, the energy crisis caused by the Biden administration’s disastrous policies has hit everyone’s pocketbook and threatened our national security. From day one, the administration has been hostile to domestic energy production, killing projects, delaying permits, and forcing capital out of the market for carbon energy projects.
  • Rural America needs permitting reform
    H.R. 1 updates our broken permitting process to actually let Americans mine, farm, manufacture, process, and build infrastructure so we can get shovels in the ground and move this country forward. For far too long, we’ve sat idle and let bureaucrats in Washington and radical activist lawyers hamstring American workers by suing at every opportunity, long after decisions have been made and permits have been issued.
  • How the buckeye got its name
    Once I learned that chocolate-covered, peanut butter candies were called moose eyes by folks in the northeast, I began to wonder how the candy really got its name in my neck of the woods.
  • Learn to 'hold your holt'
    Do what is right. Stand up, immovable, for what is good and true, and refuse to change. Edmund Burke, a famous British statesman once said, “All it takes for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.” Guess we are now seeing living proof.
  • An Easter sermon
    We are praying for all the suffering. We can give you only our fellowship and our prayer and say to you: “Courage! We accompany you!” And also to say to you the greatest thing we are celebrating today: Christòs voskrés! Christ is risen!
  • GOP House opens the door for prescription drug reform
    Voters made clear in November that they want more action on what really matters to them. The new Congress has a chance to notch a major victory for average Americans by going after the real source of high prescription drug costs in this country: middlemen companies known as pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs).
  • He has risen: An Easter celebration
    Happy Easter. This is the most blessed weekend of the year for Christians, and one we anticipate all year long. While Christmas is of course a holy season, Easter is the most meaningful one of all.
