State Tournament Musings

Sub-State basketball tournaments are underway and by Saturday night there will be tears, sadness and shouts of joy ringing out of area basketball arenas as winners move on to the "Big One", the State Finals! Heartbreak and sadness will be the temporary accompanying ghost of many as there is nothing left but to turn to spring sports after a painful loss. That's the trouble with tournaments; all but one end their season on a sad note.

Ellinwood Eagle boys win first sub-state tourney game

The Ellinwood Eagles Boys team won their first sub-state tournament game versus Ell-Saline on Monday with a final score of 59-37.

Eagle scorers were lead by Senior Marc Waite who poured in 16 points. Waite hit the boards ...

To Defeat ISIS, Win the Peace

After huddling with his war council in Kuwait, Defense Secretary Ash Carter says we've got the "ingredients of the strategy" to achieve a "lasting defeat" over ISIS. Some Senate Republicans claim that ISIS is going to kill us all in our sleep even as the U.S.-led coalition has the Islamic State forces playing defense for a change, but killing bad guys is the relatively easy part. As we learned in Iraq and Afghanistan, the hard part is to win a peace that can last, and the strategy Carter outlined last week seems like a smart way to ...

Message. Message. Who's Got the Message?

Don't look now, but the Democratic Party is undergoing an identity crisis of such monumental proportions, the Dissociative Identity Disorder people have called and are requesting artifacts for their Hall of Fame. They're going to put Obama's basketball hoop right next to Sally Field's purple crayon.

The Iditarod And Brackets

This is the week. The week when the sporting world turns its' attention to..............THE IDITAROD! No, that's not a 7'2" center for North Carolina State! It's the name of one of the most grueling sporting events in the world. A 1,000 mile race behind a sled being pulled by a bunch of dogs. Now I realize that there might be similarities between this and how you feel the way your favorite basketball team has been playing but, seriously folks, this dog-sled race has been going on in Alaska this past week and the conditions have ...

Obama Screws the Middle Class Again

How would you like a free refund of your last three years' of taxes? A promise that you won't have to pay any possible back taxes or penalty? Would you have any objection if the IRS chooses not to ask for income verification?

Democrats Have a Corruption Problem

Senator Bob Menendez will soon be indicted on corruption and obstruction of justice charges stemming from his relationship with Salomon Melgen, a West Palm Beach eye doctor. Melgen thought he could get away with Medicare fraud because he gave Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid's Super PAC $700,000 and lavished Menendez with private jet flights to his luxury resort. Given the known public facts, Harry Reid should return Melgen's money to the taxpayers he stole it from and should ask Menendez to resign.
