Governor Walker of Wisconsin and four of his supporters won recall elections rather handily last week. I found it interesting that Yahoo News called his 53 percent to 46 percent margin of victory a narrow victory! In fact, this victory could even be considered a landslide, because the victory was by a larger margin than Walker's win in his original election in 2010. It is clearly a mandate by the people of Wisconsin.

CLAY CENTER – We are in the midst of an ongoing crisis within the ranks of our young men and what they are seeing is not inspiring them to become Men of Honor. Many are influenced by what they see in sports, music, television, movies and they are not seeing positive role models. Additionally, a growing number of young men, especially in our inner cities, are starved for good examples in their own home. Sadly, some just do not have a dad in their life. Indeed, a child who has grown up with a loving and honorable Father is blessed.
