Editor: I think that Professor Winter Nie missed the mark in her column from Wednesday Feb. 8. She stated that China would win a trade war with the U.S. In fact, we already lost the trade war.
Calling all pack rats who are looking to reform, next Saturday we will have our quarterly Recycle It! Fairs as well as a Shred It!
The start of the Trump administration has been a vindication of the American nation-state.
It was, of all things, a call to jury duty that reminded me powerfully of the beauty of a sweet hometown and the joy that comes from staying put where the Lord put you in the first place.
Let's take the good with the bad about Donald Trump: On the positive side, he has rendered useless those clocks the news networks like to put up as part of their screen clutter. They count down the seconds till some major event occurs, days or even weeks away. But even when President Trump declares when he's going to announce some big decision, that can change the moment he needs to deflect attention from a mess.

His dad, incidentally, also has a PhD ...
Serving as a state senator is rewarding because I am engaged in the intricate legislative process that often affects and improves the lives of people in our community. When we reconvened this week, we addressed legislation that I believe would be good for individuals in our district.
This month is all about trees. Well, that is not exactly true. We are also all about recycling electronics and household goods and shredding records, too.
Editor, When the worst disaster in the history of Turner County struck on the afternoon of Jan. 22, the immediate response was beyond anything we ever imagined. Every county surrounding us that was not hit, sent emergency crews. Police, Sheriff and the various EMS responded. The linemen who came were simply amazing.
Editor: For the life of me, I can't figure out the mentality of the protests going on. We finally get a president who wants to protect us and people are complaining. Don't these people want to be safe? Don't they want an atmosphere where illegal aliens are not taking their jobs, or Silicon Valley is not hiring foreigners over Americans?
Editor: Why ask a question like that?
