There is no doubt about why President Barack Obama tapped Chuck Hagel for his second-term secretary of defense. They were …
More to projects than equipment
Dec. 3, 2014
There are many costs attributed with a project. Regulations make up a considerable amount of these costs — sometimes more than the machinery on site.
Republicans aren’t creating jobs
Dec. 3, 2014
I listened to John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, etc., talk about Obamacare as the No. 1 job killer in the U.S, and I have no reason to doubt the validity of the statements they are making, as who would know more about not creating jobs than our esteemed Republican leaders.
Work together to decrease deaths
Dec. 2, 2014
It is with a growing sense of unease that I continue to read stories about pedestrians being struck by a vehicle and suffering either serious injury or death. An act as simple as walking down the street should not …

Perhaps a better idea is to start all over again rather than patching immigration acts that are now 90, 49 and 28 years old.
Be vigilant, but be constitutional
Nov. 27, 2014
In a recent letter (Religion, politics must be separated, Nov. 13), the writer claims the separation of church and state is written in our Constitution. There is nothing in the U.S. Constitution that mentions the separation of church and state.
Idea of plutocracy in U.S. is nauseating
Nov. 27, 2014

Motivation needed for education
