President Trump disappointed most of the people that voted for him last week when he failed to veto the Omnibus Spending Bill brought to him courtesy of our spendthrift Congress. It seems the Republicans are bent on self-destruction to the delight of the Democrats who are willing to bankrupt the...
Nerves are still raw as I write this editorial. Angry children and adults are screaming for someone to do something – even if it’s wrong. Mostly, they want a law to ban guns. And their anger is so intense they are blind to the inadequacy of that solution. The truth is we have tried banning guns...
With Democrats in control of the legislature it seems two things are the priority. Creating new entitlement programs and increasing taxes. Let’s review a few of the bills on the agenda in Olympia: 1) Free tampons and pads for community college students Yes, you read that right. Probably won’t...

Getting ready for a new year causes all of us to take stock and look at what we need to change. The same is true for our business. Carol and I will be starting our 18th year as owners of NCW Media in 2018. We have been through a lot of changes during that time but the most significant change is...
Judge Roy Moore is still being vilified in the media but there are growing claims that some of his accusers may have lied. It seems some of them had been in his courtroom or had relatives the judge sentenced. But of course I’m sure their memories are vividly clear after 40 years of suffering the...
