  • More than almost any other state, Indiana has been deeply impacted by the effects of methamphetamine. The drug has ruined thousands of lives, but we are finally starting to see a decline in meth labs across our state.

  • I believe we are on the verge of a revolution in health care that will make people glad President Trump is doing away with Obamacare.
  • We just finished the General Assembly session for this year. And for those who are lovers of liberty like I am, it was tough. The General Assembly once again thought it understood our rights better than we did. Luckily for us, we had a defender of liberty in the Indiana House.
  • Health insurance in America is a prime example of why you cannot run a government like a business.
  • When one considers the increase in knowledge in today’s America (as opposed to 200 years ago), how can anyone not believe that the United States, as a whole, has been dumbed down?
  • California is once again demonstrating what utter flakes they are. They cut off the water supply to some farmers because it was endangering some insignificant tiny little  fish and consequently put hundreds of people out of a job. This is another example of how deluded they are.

  • Chuck Schumer is a complete a**. His fake crying is so Hollywood.
  • When I was a kid, everybody was looking for the first robin for spring. Not anymore. Now I watch for Gold Wings, convertibles with their tops down, garage sales, auctions no longer inside but outside, or wearing baseball caps instead of sock caps.
  • Just because you don’t want to do something doesn’t mean it’s impossible. For years I have written about possible ways to prevent computer hacking and nothing much has been done, it seems.
  • America is off the bench and leading the charge.
  • I would like to respond to the statement Mayor Thallemer said: "To have a library that's been here for 100 years, providing free services to those that want to take advantage of them, it’s amazing."
  • The cross is an ugly, cruel and costly death.
  • The Indiana State Senate stripped a cigarette tax increase from the state budget proposal, which the House of Representatives included in their plan.
  • What a treat a membership to the Lakeland Community Concert Association was last Saturday night which was held at "oh, such a wonderful venue,” the Warsaw Community High School stage.
  • Since 1900 the average life expectancy in the United States has risen more than 25 years. However, despite our greatest breakthroughs, death is still most people’s greatest fear and enemy, the inescapable and inevitable fact of life. Nevertheless, there is hope. The good news of Easter is there is life after death!
  • As we are almost done with the legislative session this year, I wanted to do a follow-up on a piece I wrote earlier this session regarding State Representative Curt Nisly.

  • Remember when movies that were supposed to take place in the future had the Cubs winning the World Series?
  • The following is part IV of my letter on the right of self-defense and its various aspects.
  • After reading the article on the front page of the Times-Union titled “Malicious Mischief,” about someone who is HIV positive.
  • They have had how many years now to compose a replacement for what most of the population of the United States kept screaming – Obamacare is bad and must be repealed and replaced?
  • Democrats rejoiced when the health care replacement plan was pulled in Congress. Many Democrats say health care is a right. They're wrong. Rights are free. Obamacare is not free. Illegal aliens receive free health care in ERs and federal pri­soners also receive free health care.
  • On Nov. 19, 1863, President Lincoln said that to ensure the survival of America's representative democracy: that “a government of the people, by the people, and for the people, shall not perish from the earth.” Nevertheless, a government of the people, by the people and for the people is vanishing, or has vanished from America.
  • Relay For Life is about a community coming together for a greater cause. Nearly 3.5 million people come together to celebrate the lives of those who have battled cancer, remembering loved ones lost, and empowering individuals and communities to fight back.
  • During the 2016 elections, Trump supporters were chanting, "Jail her" and "Hillary for Prison." But after the election, Donald Trump said that she had suffered enough and would not pursue charges. And how did the Clintonites repay Trump for his generosity?
  • The “American” Health Care Plan, or TrumpCare, is just another form of Orwellian doublethink. It is a terminology of deception, and it truly does define what “America” is made of. Why? Because to these rich and powerful reptiles, when they say “American,” they mean the rich and powerful. The “American” Health Care Plan is the healthcare plan of the rich and powerful, you see … they are “America”, and this is their plan.
  • For millenniums, pain has been handled by narcotics. In the future, electronic pain management will allow people to turn off pain signals before they can reach the brain.
  • Driving on  Commerce Drive in Warsaw, you see many huge potholes. They have been filled many times, and it’s time for this road from Staples past McDonalds and Audi's to U.S. 30 to be paved.
  • The Indiana General Assembly has learned a lot from President Obama and Democrats that were in Congress on Obamacare. The American people didn’t want Obamacare and didn’t understand the law.
  • Washington Democrats are like high school bullies. Only they think they are the good guys and their opponents are bad.
  • The following is the third part of my letter on reforming the Electoral College and popular vote. The first two parts, which were printed in the Jan. 25 and 27 editions of the Times-Union, listed background information on the 2016 election results. This part of my letter will begin with a proposed solution to the disparity between the electoral vote and the popular vote.
  • Our new congressman, Jim Banks, has not updated his web page, nor has he scheduled any town halls. He has not even opened a Warsaw office.
  • Over a century ago we had a problem with anarchists. They bombed Wall Street, killed people and wanted to overthrow the government. Today, with all the people opposing Trump as presi­dent and wanting him to be thrown out of office, we are having problems with neoanarchists. They probably fear that Trump will keep his promises and do a great job.
  • The $1.50 cigarette tax increase is in jeopardy.
  • I just learned of the death of Dave Fulkerson and it saddened me. Although I was only in Warsaw about three years, Dave was one of the memories I have of my time there.
  • In 2014, as a youth, I decided to get involved in state politics. I campaigned for my state representative, who was not re-elected. At that point, I really didn't have anyone I could call on as a mentor for state level politics. Luckily, I met Representative Curt Nisly. 
  • How would these celebrities like it if people would boycott their movies? Oh, there would be outrage and indignation among them. Tit for tat, as they say.
  • Editor, Times-Union:
    With the start of the new year means the start of another session of the Indiana General Assembly.
  • Editor, Times-Union:
    I keep getting fliers from KCH listing all the health care services they provide. They cover all the age groups from child care to seniors. Good for them! I think KCH provides great benefits to our community.
  • Editor, Times-Union:
    Correcting decades of problems caused by progressives will take more than 100 days, but Donald Trump can start by rescinding many of Barack Obama’s executive orders.
  • The coming New Year's resolution should be pretty obvious, particularly when it comes to diet: 2017 will go down in history as the year when plant-based meats have revolutionized the food industry.
  • As the New Year begins, determine to make 2017 the year that you quit smoking or chewing tobacco.
  • Editor, Times-Union:
    God created man in his image, if one is to believe the scriptures. I do believe them, and it follows that babies are indeed the image of God.
    “WE,” you and I, by tolerating a morally corrupt judicial system, have accepted and even encouraged the slaughtering of some 60 million unborn babies since the time of Roe v. Wade.
  • Editor, Times-Union:
    Dr. William Remington is absolutely correct that these flashing yellow left-turn signals are a terrible idea, and can be the major cause of terrible accidents.
  • Editor, Times-Union:
    This is concerning the article on the front page of the Wednesday paper.
  • Editor, Times-Union:
    Thank you, Ron Shoemaker, for being a steward of taxpayer money. Ron has been a great addition to our city council. His preparation and understanding of the issues brought before the council are commendable.
  • Editor, Times-Union:
    It’s fairly easy to look back upon horrible historical events and ask oneself, “How could that have happened?  Why did decent people not do something to stop it?”
  • In the words of Dr. Seuss, “It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled ’till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store? What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more?”
  • Editor, Times-Union:
    Contrary to rumor, I have not met a councilman who is against providing fire station services to the south side of Warsaw.  The concern I hear from people is about the cost.  When I vote, I vote for people who assure me they are fiscally conservative.
  • Editor, Times-Union:
    Voters can take a major step in changing the culture in Washington, D.C., by enacting term limits for all three branches of government through the means of a constitutional amendment, which would help increase rotation of office and break up the entrenched power culture in D.C.
  • Editor, Times-Union:
    I attended the last meeting about the new fire station and left with lots of questions. In talking with my neighbors and friends, it seems we all have the same concerns:
  • Editor, Times-Union:
    Significant problems concerning the new fire station: increased property taxes, a heavy burden that many cannot afford.
  • Editor, Times-Union:
    Mr. Kolbe:
    I’ll begin by enumerating some of the points you stressed.
  • Editor, Times-Union:
    In 732 AD the Muslim Army, which was moving on Paris, was defeated and turned back at Tours, France, by Charles Martell.
  • Editor, Times-Union:
    What a travesty of the murder of this beautiful child, Adalin Stamper, by Christopher Grimmett.

  • Editor, Times-Union:
    Since the number of fire calls is going down and the vast majority of calls are rescue calls, why not build a rescue station instead of a fire station?
  • Editor, Times-Union:
    This letter is for Rhonda Miller about honoring our veterans. I would like to express my thanks for honoring our brave men and women.
  • Editor, Times-Union:
    In the future of medical technology, treating brain disorders will be accomplished by various means. Implants will take care of such things as epilepsy, cerebral palsy and Parkinson’s disease. But it will take possible reconstruction of the brain to take care of Alzheimer’s and dementia.
  • Editor, Times-Union:
    I want to say what a great letter that Bob Burris wrote that was in the Nov. 8 Times-Union paper. I also have had some relatives that were in World War I and they had it very hard, but never once did I?ever hear them complain about being in the thick of battle.
  • Editor, Times-Union:
    In the months and weeks leading up to the election, Franklin Graham sounded a call to all Americans to gather at the steps of our state capitols and pray for our nation. The call went out to all, regardless of color, race, gender or political party. The common thread that brought this diverse

    Trump won because he said he would:

  • Editor, Times-Union:
    A few days ago we elected a new Republican president of the United States. Hoosiers elected a new Republican United States senator, a new governor and Indiana’s 2nd Congressional District re-elected Jackie Walorski and elected state Senator Jim Banks as the congressman from Indiana’s 3rd District.
  • Editor, Times-Union:
    I would like to thank Representative Curt Nisly for attending Nappanee’s Second Saturday luncheon for our veterans.

  • Editor, Times-Union:
    The following is part III?of my letter on the right of self-defense and its various aspects. Part II was printed in the Oct. 4 edition of the Times-Union.
  • Editor, Times-Union:
    In response to “Flag Flip-Flop” in the Monday, Nov. 7 issue, it is important to remember that our country’s official “Pledge of Allegiance” states:
  • Editor, Times-Union:
    I often think “What would it be,”
    if it were not for the veterans, who fought for me.
  • Editor, Times-Union:
    Does not Ecclesiastes 10:2  say, "A wise person's heart inclines to the right, while the fool's heart to the left”?
  • Editor, Times-Union:
    This election is one of the most exciting and intense in recent memory. Most people are wondering who the next president, next governor, next whoever is going to be. 
  • Editor, Times-Union:
    A number of letters to the editor this election cycle have been critical of both presidential candidates, to which I agree. We could do better than these.
  • Editor, Times-Union:
    If you are a potential Trump voter, justifiably angry at being left behind economically and socially in an America that is no longer great for you, and if you haven’t already decided that God has anointed Trump to be the next president, I urge you to consider the potential for a Trump win to lead to shredding of American values we take for granted and to diminish peace and tranquility at home and abroad. 
  • Editor, Times-Union:
    So many issues, so little time!
  • Editor, Times-Union:
    I’m not saying Trump is like Jesus. That would be almost blasphemous. But the similarities between Jesus and Trump are interesting.
  • Editor, Times-Union:
    I would like to respond to Mr. Zachery Morgan’s letter about having a disability. Everybody has a disability or a handicap. There was an individual that was perfect, but we nailed him to a tree.
  • Editor, Times-Union:
    As I see it, the coming presidential election is not about two people. It doesn’t matter if you like one or dislike both. If you don’t vote for either, in effect, you are voting for the other. If you vote for a candidate that cannot win, in effect you are helping the candidate that you dislike the most.
  • Editor, Times-Union:
    Following is my commentary with the national/state general elections less than two weeks away:
  • Editor, Times-Union:
    With this upcoming election, most voters are focusing at the top of the ticket. Who is going to be the next president? Who is going to be the next governor? Who is going to represent us in Washington?
  • Editor, Times-Union:
    This is a thumbs up for Ron Ogden in his article (A Nation At Risk) in Wednesday’s (Oct. 26, 2016) paper.
  • A storm is coming, and who we elect for president will determine if it is a passing shower or a hurricane.
  • Thank you, Sacred Heart and Grace College, for all those white crosses you put on your lawns in memory of all the countless babies killed by abortion. Now Hillary and the Democrats are so sure of an election win, they don’t care what Catholics or evangelicals believe.
  • There is nothing new here, just things that need repeated. Life leads us to many moments where we have to make a decision for what we regard as the "lesser of two evils.”
  • It is crisp today, the crystal blue sky devoid of clouds. The sun, now hanging lower in the southern sky, casts long shadows over the earth that will soon be cloaked in brilliant white snow. Red, orange, and golden leaves on tall trees seem to flash their colors as a tempting young maiden.
  • Editor, Times-Union:
    I have learned from reliable sources that there is quite a large population of Muslims in Topeka, Ind. My first thought is, why Topeka?
  • Editor, Times-Union:
    On Monday evening, the “Trump for President” sign in my front yard was stolen. My first emotion was outrage – someone intentionally stole my property. The second was sadness ­– this person was a thug attempting intimidation by taking away my First Amendment right.
  • Am I too late to ask the Times-Union and Mr. Badman who they will endorse for the offices of governor and the Senate?
  • Editor, Times-Union:
    I can say that the best candidate currently in the race to represent the good people of Indiana's third district in Washington is State Senator Jim Banks.
  • Editor, Times-Union:
    It appears the Democrats are prepared to go deep into the gutter with their tactics. They had better beware, because when they go there, Hillary’s proclivities could be brought to light. Her own husband has said that she has slept with more women than he has. Is this what we want for president? I don’t think so.
  • Editor, Times-Union:
    The Trump did blow! DID YOU HEAR THE NOISE? Did You Hear The Noise? Did you hear the noise?
  • Editor, Times-Union:
    The presidential election this year could be the last election we have for president, depending on who is elected. I see too much going on that points toward the period called the Tribulation, which makes me believe the election of Hillary Clinton will be a sure sign of Christ’s soon appearance called the Rapture.
  • Editor, Times-Union:
    Eight months ago, on the evening of Feb. 19, 2016, an elderly woman went into cardiac arrest at the North Pointe movie theater lobby in Warsaw.
  • Editor, Times-Union:
    Thank you, Glenda Ritz!
  • Editor, Times-Union:
    Trump says he knows how to bring jobs back to America. Lowering business taxes and punishing companies that move out of America with tariffs when they bring products here is a start. There are other things that could be done to bring jobs back to America and create replacement jobs.
  • Editor, Times-Union:
    Actually, my letter is to Jeff Bridges of Avon, Colo., and those of leanings of which he wrote, in response to his of Tuesday, Oct. 18, 2016.
  • Mr. Trump may think that the election is rigged or fixed, but both parties have denounced that theory. The problem is most elections are fixed one way or the other.

  • Comparing words to actions is like comparing a summer breeze to a tornado.
  • As one of the directors of Northern Lakes Skating Association, it was very nice to see that progress toward some type of seasonal ice skating facility is being looked into. As a nonprofit group that has worked toward such a goal, the NLSA would like to pledge whatever resources that we have toward such a project.
  • Mrs. Clinton: You don’t know me, and I am truly thankful that I?only know of you, but I?don’t know you personally.
  • The election that is going to happen on Nov. 8, 2016, is like no other in our political history. It is my opinion that this country will not survive another four years of the type of government that Obama has unleashed on us. It was done on purpose to bring the USA out of world leadership.
  • A year ago, friends and supporters held a rally in support of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality rights here in Warsaw. We faced opposition and different views, but we all have something in common – our desire for a better Warsaw community.
  • Editor, Times-Union:
    I have had enough of all the stupidity promoted by our nation’s corrupt news media.
  • Choosing the lesser of two evils is still choosing evil. The election of 2016 was determined as early as 1992, when Bill Clinton was elected by the vast minority of voters.
  • The following is part II of my letter on the right of self-defense and its various aspects. Part I was printed in the Aug. 11 edition of the Times-Union. The first section of the right to self-defense is listed below, along with one of the lesser-discussed aspects of self-defense – the right to alter, abolish, petition, veto or leave the authority of one’s government.
  • I’m a 48-year-old single man. I’ve lived in the Warsaw community since 1993. I’ve been in trouble a few times and have many regrets. I would like to speak now on the Drug Court program in Kosciusko County.
  • Do either one of our presidential candidates have a moral compass to guide them?
  • The absolute idiocy and hypocrisy of it all!
    Did you hear the loud complaints about Jimmy Fallon's "interview" with Donald Trump? You didn't? Good. It's not worth your effort.
  • History can be like a bully. It can punch you in the gut, and if you don’t learn your lesson it can punch you in the gut again, only harder. I’m afraid history will punch us in the gut again, only harder, if we refuse to learn the lessons of 9/11.
