Good Thinking: A tribute to August

by Dr. Don Kuehle

Pity poor old August. Unless one has a birthday or an anniversary in August, there is absolutely nothing spectacular or notable about this summer-is-almost-over month.

Originally this month was called Sextilis; it stood in the sixth place on the calendar. Then, as changes occurred in the calendar, Sextilis was moved to the eighth position in the year, and was renamed August.

In the days of the

The Name of the Game

ShepherdCalls_WPShe was born shortly after midnight in Manila, Philippines, on Sunday, July 27, 2014. She became the 100 millionth citizen of this Southeast Asian nation. While her birth was cause for celebration, and someone served cake; there is concern about her future. One hundred million people are a lot to care for, especially for this small country.

As you might imagine, someone dared ask, “What can we do to assure

Capital Report: Amendment 5

Protecting the right to bear arms

by State Sen. Brad Lager

The U.S. Constitution serves as the foundation of our democracy. This structure, established by our founding fathers, was based on the belief that government should function to protect the rights of its citizens while ensuring their fundamental liberties are guaranteed. Shaped through their experiences to secure their independence, among the most cherished freedoms they prescribed in the Constitution was

Why Incumbents Keep Getting Reelected

by Lee H. Hamilton

It’s no news that Congress is unpopular. In fact, at times it seems like the only real novelty on Capitol Hill would be a jump in its approval rating. In June, a Gallup poll found members’ standing with the American people at a historic low for a midterm-election year. Which might have been notable except, as The Washington Post pointed out, that “Congress’s approval rating has

Capital Report: A Proposal on Immigration

by Congressman Sam Graves

A wise person once said, “the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, expecting a different result.” Well, if you look at the current approach of not enforcing our laws, not securing our borders, and ignoring the will of the people, it is nothing short of insanity. Unfortunately, this is the approach we have come to expect out of the Obama

The Writing on the Wall

Dw.cdrIt bothers me that so many of our public schools no longer teach cursive writing. I guess that’s because I relate back to the times of “B.C.” …before computers.

It’s true few of us handwrite very much of anything anymore; I know I don’t. I wouldn’t want to write this weekly column without the speed and convenience of a computer. And if you were forced to decipher my thoughts from

Good Thinking: Proud to Be an American

by Dr. Don Kuehle

Some things come my way that are soooo good that I have to pass them on! This is one of them.

Some time ago, a notice appeared in a Pakistani newspaper: “A reward will be given to anyone who kills an American, any American.” An Australian dentist, living in Pakistan, wrote this reply: “I’m writing this to let everyone know what an American is, so you

Capitol Report: A Surge at the Border

by Congressman Sam Graves

I’ve often said, “You can’t fix a leaky faucet with the water still running.” That’s not only good advice in your kitchen, but the same principle holds true for immigration reform and dealing with the current situation at our southwestern border. We’ve seen more than 50,000 unaccompanied alien children have crossed into the U.S. in recent months.

The reason we are witnessing this surge at the

Hummingbirds

ShepherdCalls_WPFor years I have hung hummingbird feeders so I can see the birds from inside the house. The speedy little fliers are not only beautiful they are fascinating. They can hover or fly backwards, even upside down and judging by their visits to my feeders, they are quite ravenous. As I watch I wonder if they know I am inside, in an air-conditioned dwelling watching them (with binoculars even) toil
