The bigger they are, the harder they fall. My father taught me that when I was just a child. At the time, he was talking about schoolyard bullies, pushing the other kids around just because they could. I thought of it again when I started getting letters in the mail from Dominion Resources telling…

Stop look and listen! God really does belong in our city!

A little over a year ago the date for the march “God Belongs in My City” was set for Aug. 28. How were the organizers to know that it could be dangerous to gather anywhere in these days of unrest and violence?…

Who is going to pay for all the damages from Hurricanes Harvey and Irma? The answer is all of us.

How will we pay for it? Higher insurance rates, higher costs for building materials, higher labor costs, higher road taxes, higher gas prices, higher food prices, higher costs for almost everything.

Monuments erected in the South after the Civil War were bought almost exclusively by women's groups and for the expressed purpose of honoring their dead. Their inscriptions reflect this and do not include racial statements. They state variations of "to our Confederate dead," etc. These monuments…

Take down the Confederate monument? Why? It is wrong for one human being to be owned by another. It is also wrong to teach students history that is incorrect. Proving that the South was fighting only to keep slaves, as Andre Knight and Reuben Blackwell have suggested, is a hard case to make. At no…

Whenever people such as George Whitaker try to rewrite history about the Confederate flag or the Civil War and its causes, I always go back to the Cornerstone Speech delivered by Confederate Vice President Alexander Stephans in 1861. He did the politically incorrect thing and spoke the truth about…

I take umbrage to the remarks made recently by Ms. Koo on Aug. 30. She not only denigrated the entire white race, but also labeled their black friends as “token blacks.” So a leftist has self-appointed herself as a spokeswoman for the struggles of the entire race of black…
