As Fayette County commander of the American Legion, I would like to thank all veterans who marched in the Veteran's Day parade. It was a bright sunny day a little breezy and warm for November. The city of Uniontown and American Legion Post 51 hosts this parade every three years. Next year, i…

Four years ago my daughter, Paige Nagy died from epilepsy/SUDEP. She was just 21 years old with her whole life ahead of her but now our family will only be able to just wonder what things she would have accomplished. Would she have been married and had children yet, had a great job? We'll ne…

Not long ago, I wrote a letter to the editor predicting that marijuana would be legalized for recreational use by the time governor Tom Wolf left office. My reasoning is that anything deemed illegal by the state could be made legal if the state benefits financially.

On Veteran's Day, my wife and I decided to grab a bite to eat before going grocery shopping. What a pleasant experience it was when we ended up at Applebee's in Uniontown. The receptionist greeted us with a genuine smile and a "thank you" for my service. Our waiter was a smiling, respectful …

As parents, we try to do the very best job we can raising our children to become law abiding, honest, upstanding, and self-sufficient members of society. We start from the day they're born by showing them unbiased and unconditional love. We do our best to teach them the difference between ri…

It is curious and disturbing that after recent elections in which many Eastern Pennsylvania jurisdictions that have traditionally voted Republican fell into the Democratic column, and as the GOP suffered blistering defeats in this month's elections, losing the governorship of Kentucky and co…

In response to Pastor Nicholson's letter published on Nov. 7, our country was and is made up from people of diverse cultures and beliefs. Wisely, the writers of the Constitution made no reference to Christianity or Judaism as being the basis for our laws, our culture, or our public education.

Six a.m. in the morning is not the best time to breakfast on the writings of William “Ed” Nicholson. His omelette offering in Thursday's Herald-Standard looked appetizing until he splashed onto it this dangerous hot sauce. “Secular Humanism" is the embodiment of this danger” (meaning, secula…

The Herald-Standard published a commentary a couple weeks ago by Terry Jeffrey that revolved around a speech given by the Attorney General of the U.S., William P. Barr. Barr's speech delivered at Notre Dame Law School cited a letter written in 1798 by our second President, John Adams. Regard…

The impertinence of Pennsylvanian Republicans injecting excessive and biased regulations on medical patients in our Commonwealth is lamentable by any measure. They are not doctors despite their deep desire to regulate how medical marijuana patients treat their disabilities and health needs. …

“The fact of the matter is I think Bailey Park looks as good now as it’s ever looked.” After reading that quote in Sunday’s Herald-Standard I had to pause for a moment and wonder if Mayor Ed Fike put any thought into that statement. Ed, you’re correct in stating that improvements to the park…

If past were prologue, and the Republican Congressional leaders were truly concerned about not wanting the country to be torn apart by impeachment, they would go to President Trump and tell him to resign, as Sen. Barry Goldwater, R-Ariz., House Minority Leader John Rhodes, R-Ariz., and Senat…

I've been doing this for a while. There was a time when I could sneak in one of these things every couple of weeks, but lately I've been limited to one a month. I guess that makes sense in a nonsensical sort of way. I mean, you have to read how the One-Trick Ponies say the same thing; week a…

Fall has arrived once more and true to their habit, spiders of all shapes and sizes are at it again, building spider webs across every path and gate opening I utilize during morning chores.

Each year, on the second Sunday in September, the 429th Engineer Battalion holds its annual Army reunion in Mill Run. This year marked the ninth reunion of veterans and fellow members who attended the event with service during the Korean War, Vietnam War and Desert Shield/Desert Storm, past …

I guess I'm tired of just about everything, so I'll just start with this. I'm tired of Congress and politicians collecting a paycheck for doing nothing except trying to impeach the president.

I occasionally watch the PCN channel and was surprised to see state Rep. Matt Dowling on. I felt good that a local rep. was on to talk about the conditions of Fayette County. Our schools, police hospitals, businesses and seniors are all in need of help in each of their own ways.
