Have you noticed it, on the west side of Hwy 27, four miles south of Ladysmith, facing travelers heading north?  A white baby, its head wrapped in a stars-and-stripes bandana, is pictured on a billboard beside the words, “Born in the U.S.A.”.  The words are printed as if stamped on a GI’s do…

On October 2016, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Justice presented, a vile, deceitful dossier to the Foreign Intelligence Act court. The 35 page report was compiled by British former M.I.-6 intelligence agent Christopher Steele, and paid for by Hillary Clinton’s pre…

This is in reply to Ms. Ohmstead’s letter a few weeks ago reminding us that Donald Trump is the 45th president of the United States. That is a fact.  It would be nice if he starting acting more like that and less like the reality tv star persona that carried him through the election cycle.  …

President Trump, addressing CPAC recently, asked, “When was the last time we won a war?”  No kidding. That topped his list of WHAT WE CAN EXPECT TO START WINNING AGAIN under his leadership. Mind you, he wasn’t talking to some losing NFL team he was pledging to take to the Superbowl. He wasn’…
