STAR PARKER: The Trump, GOP economic recovery

Commentary

When I read that the economy is growing strongly, it makes me happy. But in politics, good news is not enough. You have to decide who gets credit for it. President Ronald Reagan, no ordinary politician, kept a plaque on his desk that said, "There is no limit to what a man can do or where ...

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Here we go again

Commentary

Here we go again. The yearly call for “hate crime” legislation is upon us (News-Sentinel editorial, 8/2/18). This was a stupid idea last year, the year before last, and every year before those. Why should it be any more desirable now? Indiana should steer clear of all attempts at social ...

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Reader: Editorial on abortion is flawed

Commentary

I read Kerry Hubartt’s column in the Saturday July 28 edition, and I have a number of concerns. I understand that abortion is an emotional issue for many in our community, and while Kerry’s column attempts to enlist both science and justice in the pro-life position, I think that the ...

The Rant for August 1, 2018

Commentary

BETTY STEIN: A little bit of this, a little bit of that

Commentary

As of this writing, the Baltimore Orioles have lost 74 games this season. I wondered if that was a record, so went to an old faithful friend Google, and no, that’s far from a record, but they are on pace for one. A team called the Cleveland Spiders back in 1899 lost 134 games in one season. ...

KERRY HUBARTT: Both science and justice explain when life begins

Commentary

Two news stories this week highlight the basic difference of opinion in the great abortion debate — when does life begin? The 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Wednesday affirmed a preliminary injunction issued last year by a U.S. district judge that blocked an Indiana mandate to force ...

The Rant for July 25, 2018

Commentary

Why on earth would you argue with a request from a flight attendant. Sounds like a deliberate try to make trouble to me and I saw nothing menacing about the flight attendant in the video that apparently went viral. Being civil goes both ways and I see so little civility. I wonder if being ...
