  The mixed martial arts community was a buzz on March 25 as former UFC lightweight and featherweight champion Conor McGregor announced his retirement from MMA competition. I’m not going to go into McGegor’s list of MMA accomplishments and his impact on the sport like I had my previous column...
  Thanks to everyone that has asked questions, and offered your additional insight and perspectives on the proposed LCSD bond issue. I offer the following thoughts based upon those communications:   1. The proposed bond issue is far reaching; extremely far reaching. Simply, the enrollments in the...
Why must it always be thus - the “haves” versus the “have nots”? In this case it is vice versa. Big government, i.e., the state of Washington, wants more tax revenue so it can spend more money. The “Tax and Spend” Democrats are flying their colors high indeed. Governor Jay Inslee wants $10B more in...
Call it a loophole if you want. But I call what Talos Tactical owner Matt Cieslar is doing in West Richland a moral win for rural residents and 2nd Amendment supporters ... albeit temporary. The owner of the gun shop at 4096 W. Van Giesen St. vowed last week to continue selling hunting rifles to...

Is this year's crop of Democrat candidates for various local, district-wide and national offices marching under the banner of socialism?

Free trade promised that we could buy goods for less. Programs like Nafta promised to bring us cheaper products from our neigbors while opening the world to quality goods from America. It was the classic win-win. The problem is it doesn’t work. Sure we we’ve been able to buy cheaper cars, cell...
Picture this angle on what just happened in Helsinki: Our man "T" thinks he is still with the Queen of England having high "T" (it might have been low, but that's another story). Three days later, Vlad sees this unbelievable zombie-like caricature of Trump as himself, sipping Tetley's from painted...
