Hate. A tiny, four-letter word with such big implications. I don't understand how, when or why this word became so powerful. What ever happened to love your neighbor? What ever happened to obeying and following the Ten Commandments? Why do people think they are so supreme that they are above…

What happened recently in Fayette County has caused me great concern. The power brokers in county government decided to move forward with "Fayette's Folly." That would be the new correctional facility that soon will become reality. It has been in the making for quite some time. Starting in 2…

I am a strong supporter of President Biden and Kamala Harris, and I am grateful every day for the civility, respect, decency, and honor that they have restored to our country.

The human race is a marvelous intricate unit. I believe we are resilient and adaptable. Some of us are headstrong; some are cool and calm. Some are leaders; others are followers. People follow for different reasons: some believe in the leader’s doctrines, some enjoy the company of others, wh…

I was saddened to read of the recent passing of Paul Lancaster. As a longtime basketball and baseball coach at Connellsville High School, I've come in contact with many sports officials. There was not another man in officiating that I respected more than Paul.

Our daughter gave us a plaque that said, "Live-Laugh-Love," that we placed on our wall to remind us to include these words in our life, by our actions. Since we have done this, it has helped to make our lives a little bit better. We see things in a more positive way. We all need some "positi…

I found Monday's article in the Herald-Standard describing our local legislators' displeasure with the vaccine rollout in Pennsylvania to be quite interesting. Had they focused their efforts on canvassing the areas they represent to determine the need and offering assistance to the state Dep…

It is disappointing and stunning that Gov. Tom Wolf would propose a massive tax increase, which despite a proposed increase in the exemption for lower income families, would hit countless middle-class families through a boost of almost 50% in the state's levy on income, taking it from 3.07 t…

Our country was attacked by armed insurrectionists who stormed the halls of Congress looking for government employees to kill or take as hostages. All those involved in this attack on our country, including elected representatives like Guy Reschenthaler, need to be rounded up and taken to Gi…

On Jan. 6, I watched events unfold from that afternoon until the early hours of Thursday morning. Watching the stultifying drone of congressional floor debate give way to images of Capitol police being pushed aside by a terrorist mob was jarring, to say the least. I felt the same knot in the…

I believe 2020 had more challenges for us as individuals and as a country than any other year in history. We lost a lot of well-known people for reasons ranging from accidents to virus side effects. We almost ended up in a war in the Middle East. We witnessed the burning of Australia and hor…

We have all heard of Central and South American countries being referred to as banana republics, lawlessness and dictators who grab and attempt to hold on to power with little regard for democratic institutions. We here in the United States would always condemn these actions. It's hard for m…
