Months before an election, state and local election officials plan and prepare tirelessly to protect the safety and integrity of our elections. Now, less than 100 days before a general election that will take place amid a global pandemic, election officials across the nation are preparing to…

Few examples of systemic racism are more glaring than the African slave trade. British parliamentarian William Wilberforce led a grueling 20-year struggle to outlaw it. Inspired by a former slave trader, he became a model that current anti-racism activists could do well to emulate.

Mark 6:3 Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary and brother of James and Judas and Simon?

Back in February, caution was in order, as we knew little about the tiny COVID-19 virus whose threat loomed large. What else could we do but follow our leaders and public health experts?

Mainstream media publications are hammering fiscally conservative groups opposed to wasteful spending of tax dollars for accepting temporary financial help in the form of a publicly funded Paycheck Protection Program loan to counter COVID-19 shutdowns.

Deuteronomy 4:35 and 39: “Unto thee it was shewed, that thou mightest know that the LORD he is God; there is none else beside him. 39 Know therefore this day, and consider it in thine heart, that the LORD he is God in heaven above, and upon the earth beneath: there is none else.”

I cannot say what I want for fear of being condemned as a “—phobe,” or a hater or a bigot. Language has been weaponized in a way that I cannot remember in my lifetime. I am not for hate speech, real hate speech. On the other hand, if an educated nation allows its haters to say what they want…

I didn’t watch President Trump’s weekend speeches live. It was a holiday, so I chose to take one. As a result, I first learned about them from the reactions they elicited. As usual, it was like “Rashomon” for the Trump era.

Overcast skies did not dissuade visitors to Venture River Water Park’s season opening Monday on one of the hottest days of the year so far. Normally open for the season beginning Memorial Day weekend, the Eddyville recreational park was forced to hold off until late June due to COVID-19 rest…
