    Gas price hike warnings

    Here we go again with gasoline price hike warnings being issued. The wholesale price has been declining for weeks and has dropped over 40 cents in cost as of now but in many areas around St. Clair County the price remains where is has been for the last 2 years. In that time outside of the St. Louis...

    Hypocrisy and heresy

    In the 1960's and early 70's our Congressmen spoke all around the country pledging support to end the conflict in Vietnam. The audiences were mostly college students who were predominately incoherent due to their extra-curricular activities. With the words of support from these Congressmen still...

    British are OK

    Regarding Joseph (let's blame the Brits for every bad thing that ever happened in the history of the world) Reichert's letter. Wow! What a distinction! Worse than Hitler! Worse than Stalin! Idi Amin! Tojo! Ghenghis Khan! But that's OK. We can handle it. The British are very broad-minded, in fact...

I would like for you to explain to the citizens of your districts why you believe that we should not be able to vote for limited terms for our elected officials. You and the rest of the democratic leadership in Chicag...er, I mean Springfield...

    Affordable Care isn't

    I saw in the Aug. 17 paper both sides of the Affordable Care Act, and I wanted to respond to the part that claimed ACA is working for people and their premiums are down, or something to that effect.

    Obligation more like a life jacket

    A lot of Catholics bemoan "holy days of obligation," especially when these days fall during the week, because some feel it poses an inconvenience. The reasoning goes that after working all day people just want to come home and rest. And some believe this "obligation" imposes an undue burden upon...

    Robin Williams needed God

    Robin Williams was an amazing man. It looked as though he "had it all" -- talent, money, wit, fame -- he was a comic genius. But the one thing he didn't have is the most important thing a man can have -- a close, loving relationship with God, his Creator. And that would have made all the difference...

    Obama taking over

    Thank you Professor Turley, of George Washington University, for your courage and forthrightness in explaining to the House Judiciary Committee how Obama has knowingly and repeatedly violated the Constitution.
