LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Endorsing Mark Hurt for U.S. Senate

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Make sure you are honoring God if you are a believer

Christian believer: If God is not first in your life, is He in at all? Is what you listen to, read or watch for pleasure God-honoring? Are our actions and speech God-honoring? (These are my 2 main struggles, so please pray for me on them) Is what we listen to, read and watch for pleasure ...

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Reader questions Mike Braun’s allegiances

JOHN ROSEMOND: You should support your child who chooses not to go to college

Q: Our 18-year-old son made only slightly better than average grades in high school and finished in the top half of his graduating class. He could have done better but has a history of underachievement which we explain as boredom. He managed to get into a second-tier state college but ...

RACHAEL MARSDEN: Returning jihadists need prison, not couches

PARIS — The Russian Defense Ministry and Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi made separate announcements last week that the Islamic State had been defeated. Of course, this doesn’t mean that these terrorists won’t be popping up elsewhere like bomb-toting, head-chopping ...

In 2003 a genetics paper revealed that one in 200 men alive in that year was a direct descendant of Genghis Khan (1162-1227). Khan was the Mongol emperor whose armies swept out of the north to conquer pretty much all of Asia. His successors took big chunks of Europe as well. When Marco Polo ...
