Tribune Publisher Bob Werner remembered

About 10 years later he took over the helm at the Tribune as publisher where he led our organization until his retirement in 1996.

Then the time came when we had to say goodbye to her.

Trump takes aim at his own feet

Like the previous week and every one since February, the last seven day period has been a perfect example of why the current administration gets less traction than a flamingo wearing galoshes on an ice rink. The problem is Donald Trump: King of the unforced error, who shoots himself in the foot so many times, it's amazing he has either of his knees left.

Virginia Governor’s race is the establishment’s revenge

November's off-year Virginia governor's race is what conservatives would have faced in 2016 if Trump had done a Hillary as he descended the escalator for his announcement and wound up in A Place for Mom instead of the Oval Office.

Is “Trunk or Treat” a Halloween Heresy?

My family will be participating in two or three "trunk or treat" activities this month, but I've learned that the trend of going from car to car in a designated parking lot to collect candy is still very controversial.

Rex Tillerson shouldn’t have gone full ‘moron’

Here's the deal: You don't start out by calling someone a "moron." That's a final exclamatory heave after exhausting all other slanders. Fool. Jerk. Pinhead. Nitwit. Idiot. Nincompoop. Until finally... moron. It doesn't quite scale the heights of "total moron" or "banana faced monkey dribbler," but it's close.
