I am a retired minister of the Church of Christ. I have spent much time in the past 50 years studying Bible prophecy. The confusion by religious folks over time promises, mostly in the New Testament, is immense. Let us deal with just one aspect of this subject.

The whole attempt to impeach President Trump by these Dems is a load of garbage. They just can’t stand the fact that Trump beat Hillary Clinton. It’s obvious that the Dems will never admit the fact that Trump has done more good for this country than Barack Obama could have ever dreamed of doing.

Oh swell. The Republican Senate’s so-called “moderates,” who combine big talk with little action and fuse noble rhetoric with hapless inertia, appear to be readying themselves for another year of deeming certain Trump desecrations as “unhelpful” or “unwise.”

I found the article titled “AACS opposes sale to charter school” in a recent edition of the Star Beacon to be more of an advertorial for a public institution than a news story. To be clear, my wife and I are financial supporters of AACS by way of federal, state and local taxes.  We have alwa…

Most rat and mouse poison kills more than rats and mice. Poison kills birds of prey like bald eagles, red-tail hawks, cooper hawks, kestrels and owls — all of which call Ashtabula County home. These poisons also could kill the family pet cat or dog.

Jeff and I would like to give a big THANK YOU to every who helped in any way with the benefit and silent auction held Oct. 19, 2019 at Jefferson United Methodist Church to help with the mounting medical bills Jeff as from hospital stays and surgeries. He still has more surgeries to come, but…

Impeachment is on the brain, and it would seem to the exclusion of everything else. But we had better make room for the Iraqi people. At the start of the month, Chaldean archbishop Bashar Warda of Erbil visited New York and spoke at the United Nations Security Council about the situation in …

Apple-converted-space It is easy to give thanks when things are going well.  It is harder to do so when life has dealt us difficult, demanding, and depressing situations.  But just as a smooth sea never made a good sailor, the most genuine expressions of thankfulness are created in the cruci…

With festive turkey-based feasts fast approaching, and having just re-watched a classic Thanksgiving-themed Steve Martin video, I thought it appropriate that I share a few of the things for which I am thankful. I apologize if the list is too predictable and schmaltzy, but please bear with me.

Another month, another Democratic presidential debate. It’s getting to where one anticipates these dreary, made-for-TV spectacles as one looks forward to a root canal.

On behalf of the Ashtabula County Board of Developmental Disabilities, we would like to publicly thank the voters of Ashtabula County for the passage of our levy. 

My family and I would like to express our thanks for the outpouring of honor, remembrance, and patriotism shown to our son-in-law, Sgt. Thomas C. Walker; and for the support and comfort given by the entire community to our daughter, and Cole’s widow, Taylor Walker. It was an honor to accompa…

On Oct. 16, I attended the Sustainable Cleveland 2019 Summit, celebrating 10 years of environmental accomplishments and setting new priorities for the Cleveland Climate Action Plan.

After 35 years of studying and researching evolution, I can honestly state that I can find NO evidence to support the theory of evolution.

I would like to send out a special thank you to the individuals who assisted making the dedication of my brother’s memorial plaque at the Conneaut Stadium Sept. 6. It was a pleasant and memorable experience for my family and myself. 

It was the end of a typical day at Jefferson Area High School; the sun was shining, the marching band was practicing, the buses were waiting and nothing could dampen Delightful Granddaughter’s mood. That is until she saw Principal Jeremy Huber walking to a lone vehicle parked in the wrong pl…

Billions of years in the making, but when trees branched off from the tree of life, life for us was possible. And later, when Chimpanzees did the same, were were on the horizon. We humans still retain over 25% of the DNA of trees and 99% of the Chimpanzee’s DNA (our closest relative). These …

Donald Trump stated he was “The Chosen One.” God help us all. As “American Pie” rhymed “The three men of I admire most, the Father Son and the Holy Ghost, they took the first train for the coast the day the music died.” Will you dance to Donald’s tune? Or ask the Trinity to take Donald with …

One in four women and one in seven men will be victims of domestic violence at some point in their life. On top of the abuse, 60% of these victims will lose their job as a direct result of this violence. This is because on average an individual experiencing domestic violence will miss about …

I wasn’t around at the time, but I am sure Ohio politicians did not consider bail outs for other failing technologies. I am sure a lot of ice companies went out of business when refrigerators were invented; what about the kerosene lamp and buggy whip companies. Coal and nuclear power plants …

Apparently I’m too dumb to understand people with smart phones. I have a flip phone with a slide-out keypad. To me that’s a new-fangled gadget, and, yes, the keypad is pretty slick.
