The Old Farmer’s Almanac said it was time for me to plant my potatoes and corn. But the weather forecast called for a gullywasher. That’s a fancy weather term for a lot of rain.

As I sit at my Royal manual typewriter and look out the window while the weather tries to work-up some rain and a sparrow goes into my Purple Martin House (the sparrow has to go…the Purple Martin Scouts should come any day), a week of sunshine would be welcomed to our area.

The solution to economic problems is not government taxing or spending. Now there are those who think that government money can reverse economic decline and put people back to work. Actually, we have over eighty years to show that this Keynesian approach to depression does not work. In fact,…

The Bible says in Proverbs 27:1, “Boast not thyself of tomorrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth.” Many years ago, a group of travelers traveled west during the early spring. In this group was an elderly minister who had made this trip before.

A few days each week we can either see or feel conditions that turn our thoughts toward gardening. When I recently read the following in an old farmers’ almanac it even moved me to consider gardening.

Money is in the news these days as budget proposals, deficits, taxes, and inflation loom large in city, county, state and national deliberative bodies (that is another term for city councils, county commissioner’s courts, and both state and national legislatures) debate and decide what to do.

To honor the memory of Kirk Douglas, who died last week at 103, I watched “Lonely Are the Brave” on Thursday night. The 1962 classic is about a 20th-century cowboy at mortal odds with modern life — a roaming spirit who won’t be stopped by wire fences, prison bars, search helicopters or sadis…

My last article dealt with the growing crisis with Iran and the history of American presidents using missile attacks on their enemies. Based on those acts, House Democrats have passed a war powers resolution ordering the president to stop all hostilities with Iran within thirty days. This br…

AMES, Iowa — For six months, some of President Trump’s most implacable foes have invested great hope in two Republicans — former Rep. Joe Walsh and former Massachusetts Gov. William Weld — who are challenging the president for the GOP nomination. Could they do some damage to Trump’s re-elect…

Think about the person you love the most. Would you say it was your child? I know it can be a hard choice, especially when you have more than one child. We would never admit that we love one of our children more than another. We just say we love them in different ways. And that is true, for …

Loving God is a great subject but loving Him extends beyond mere verbal assent. We need to realize that love expresses most clearly in our actions. Men, your wife or girlfriend like to hear about your love, but if you never show it, they will eventually stop believing. The love for God in a …

Before he was Maverick or Jim Rockford, actor James Garner was a gas station attendant.

All of us are individuals and we place values in different happenings and events as well as our day to day living. I realize “things” happen, however I know that we are responsible for many of the situations in our lives. As I have advanced in years, I can see more of what happens in the are…

We are being hypnotized by rhetoric emphasizing change and condemning President Trump as racist, sexist, liar and any number of other bad things. I’m for change when it is clearly and absolutely necessary for the betterment and prosperity of the whole society. I am not for lying, cursing or …

Barbara Boxer minces no words when it comes to describing the people usually known as the Bernie Bros — a subset of Bernie Sanders supporters who hope to take over the Democratic Party and remake it in their image.

Regarding President Trump’s peace plan for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the instant conventional wisdom is that it’s a geopolitical nonstarter, a gift to Benjamin Netanyahu and an electoral ploy by the president to win Jewish votes in Florida rather than Palestinian hearts in Ramallah.

“Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.” [Ephesians 4:29]

Jesus takes it for granted that believers are going to pray. Matthew 6:5 says, “When thou prayest…” If you believe that prayer is not important, you have not read the Bible enough. We find prayer in the first book of the Bible, the last book of the Bible, and we find prayer today.

Dangerous menaces are spreading from mainland China to the United States. Surgical masks and Big Pharma vaccines, however, won’t protect this nation from its infiltration. The problem doesn’t lie with bats. It lies with America’s batty pursuit of globalization at all costs.

There were only a handful of people in the world who knew what was about to happen. My friend was one of them.

Gardeners across East Texas are anxious to get the season underway, a planning date that all gardeners need to consider (that is all we can do) Easter will be April 12 and usually, not always, around Easter we have our last killing frost. I believe that all gardeners could be more productive…

Much of life is spent learning distances — a sense of proportion, size and proximity; the distance one should keep between good and evil things; the distance involved in physical separation; the distance of social propriety, that is, you don’t just walk up and slap President Trump on the bac…

Donald Trump is a lawless president and revolting person who richly deserved his impeachment and, in a better world, would be convicted in the Senate and removed from the White House. That’s my view, as it is the view of a plurality — albeit a narrow plurality — of the American people.

Bill Weld, the former Massachusetts governor and current long-shot — make that, loooooooong-shot — candidate for the Republican Party’s presidential nomination, is a keen student of New Hampshire politics. In an interview with me this week, he noted the following fact: Every time an incumben…
