Democracy is dying a slow death. As the incumbent U.S. president Donald Trump battles in the courts to contest his Nov. 3 election loss, it feels like we are watching the slow-motion train wreck of our democracy. What took 240 years to build has been gradually dismantled over the past four y…

We all know the effects coronavirus has had. At one point or another, each state has been shut down to stop the spread of the virus with good intentions to help stop the spread of the virus. Unfortunately, that comes with unintentional consequences for people who already felt stuck.

The people in this region are phenomenal. Throughout this pandemic, we have witnessed an outpouring of community support in the form of much appreciated personal protective equipment, meals for our employees, monetary donations and handmade masks and cards. We can never express our appreciat…

Thank you to my home state for returning some intelligence, dignity, and trust to Washington. The decision you made to not give Donald Trump four more years was not easy for a typically red state to make. I appreciate that you chose decency over dollars, calm reasoning over constant chaos, a…

I'll tell you how old I am. I'm old enough to remember when politicians (regardless of party) treated each other with respect. I remember when the president of the United States was treated with respect by both parties. I remember when the news media reported (mostly) the truth. They told th…

Tom Ridge voting for Joe Biden! Rich Bower becoming a Republican! Analyzing why these unexpected, uncommon decisions were made is curiously interesting to surmise. Both gentlemen seem to be admirable individuals of sound mind and body. Two very infrequent divergent political paths. What is t…
