''Abortion'', we just did not believe that something like this would ever happen. Then Roe vs Wade happened. Even when we began to feel and see the impact, a lot of us just stood by and let it continue to get worse. Some endorsed it and others voted for their Party when they knew that it sup…

Do you think that Warren Buffet or Bill Gates or the other super-wealthy men are as hesitant to let go when they make an error in judgement as the ordinary man? The way of the rich should be our way -- if they make a mistake, they can afford to forget about it, move on and take pleasure in t…

It has been a year since my son Jeffrey passed away due to addiction. As any parent who has lost a child knows, it is a day that you relive every minute of every day. I look back and try to figure out what I could have done differently. When the power and evil of addiction takes over the lif…

I was afraid that finding a highly skilled surgeon in a smaller town like Uniontown wouldn’t be possible — that I would have to go to Pittsburgh for treatment. I was wrong. Dr. Mike Reilly is world-class. He lived here. He worked here. And he’s a major blessing. He approaches surgery like an…

This will not be the commentary you are expecting, nor will it be to everyone's tastes. However, it is from the candidate’s mouth, and not through friends, or some back-channel political operative. Important people, voters, are watching me, will read this, will discuss it. My friends, family…

Last Sunday when I came in from my early morning chores, my cereal bowl was not on the counter where it usually is on Sunday mornings. (We do a few things on Saturday evening to facilitate getting ready for church on Sunday. Filling cereal bowls is one of those Saturday evening preps.) Assum…

As is every four years, we elect three commissioners. As I see it, Vicites and Lohr will be retained for another term. Leaving one spot open. The person must be intelligent, honest, have endless energy and have some workings with government business. There is only one candidate with all of t…

The year was 1965 and my 16th birthday was rapidly approaching in the month of March. My mother and I used to frequent what would be called a "convenience store" in today’s world, located on Morrell Avenue in the city of Connellsville near Greenwood Heights. The owners of the store were a hu…

It was reported by Fox News this week that ISIS-affiliated gunmen had attacked a wedding ceremony in Iraq and slaughtered over 50 innocent people. Some see this as a new attempt by the Muslim radicals to reestablish an Islamic Caliphate. Yet the reports were scarcely mentioned or wholly omit…
