Country needs a president who will hold true to country’s foundation

Editor, Let's knock off this foolish pettiness and start talking about what this country needs: jobs, legal immigration, a strong military, a government that believes in and follows the Constitution, a government that believes in the separation of church and state, a government that believes in the sanctity of marriage between a man and a woman, and - above all - a government that believes that we are a great nation, indivisible under God.

Families make many sacrifices during times of deployment

As many families are out choosing Halloween costumes and trying to decide how to decorate pumpkins, others in our community are preparing to say goodbye to their soldiers for nine to 12 months.
