Government budgets are similar to family budgets in that sometimes you have unexpected expenses. Your children get sick? You spend whatever is necessary. Same with government. Terrorist attacks, national banking crisis, and an unexpected virus are all reasons we have to spend more than was o…

Everyone seems to have a big problem trying to figure out how the documents got over to the Penn Biden Center and also to Joe’s house. We all know that Joe being the President surly wouldn’t lie about a thing like that. But for some reason he don’t know how they got there and his press secre…

The current procedure to elect a Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives has been referred to by so-called experts as a “clown show” (along with another type of show which, out of respect for the reading public I will refrain from including herein.) For much of my adult Life I have cons…

So members of the U.S. Congress are calling for newly elected New York Congressman George Santos to resign even before being sworn in? All he did was make up a life story with apparently no direct connection to reality.

Disillusioned is the only respectable term I can think of to describe it. In another spurt of responsible adult behavior, I attended my second-ever Jones County School Board meeting. Having no children, school age or otherwise, it was primarily a showing of support for Buck Torske and the Fr…

I would like to inform everyone of the problem with Jones county Adult Dentition center. As of today 237 people are in a 130 person jail, with no mats sleeping on concrete floors, in a 8 man cell they’re putting 16-20 in there. Now cause of overpopulation the flu is hitting them. Telling the…

What can we do about violence so prevalent in our nation today? I believe the answer that would help the most is simple. “PUT BIBLE READING and PRAYER” back in our schools and allow the “TEN COMMANDMENTS” to be exhibited in public places.

As a kid I loved “Bear Bryant” and into a young man. I lived in “Camden Alabama” and “Fairhope” for a while. I love Alabama. My Dad subscribed for “Sports Illustrated” many years for me. I remember reading an article that the “Late Great Frank DeFord” wrote, he said, “You can’t mention but t…

A lot of people are scratching their heads wondering what happened to the Red Wave which was supposed to sweep the nation. Well, now we know. We aren’t exactly who we thought we were.

Had a good little chuckle to myself in the wee morning hours of Wednesday as the Red Wave evaporated before my eyes. Seems like not too long ago the LLC saw fit to label me as a, and I quote, “legitimate right-wing extremist” for DARING to imply that our insistence on exercising our biyearly…

I know the Laurel Leader Call has a problem with me because of my comments and my concerns that they are not dealing with black concerns in a proper manner in their newspaper but I have been to the City Council meeting with concerns that Northfolk Southern is putting one side of this city in…

I have had a bad feeling for the last few weeks that the republicans were making a big mistake when they kept braging about the tsunami and the big red tide coming. I was hoping they would calm down on all this braging.

On the fox news sunday show they were giving a new reason for global warming. Now they are blaming it on dogs. I happen to have two dogs and now they have got my dander up. I didn’t want to have to do this but now I’m going to have to let the cat out of the bag.

First, jobs: Since Reagan, America has seen four decades of decline as manufacturing jobs have been shipped offshore, or south of the border. Biden and the Democrats have created nearly 700,000 manufacturing jobs in two years and the Infrastructure Bill, the CHIPS Act, and the Inflation Redu…

Being the responsible adult citizen that few, if any, responsible adults during my formative years would ever have predicted, I attended the October 3 meeting of the Jones County School Board as a member of the Free State Citizens Action Union. Buck Torske was on the agenda to make a present…

Last March, 2021, I wrote a letter to the editor about how city government “should be” customer service. HOWEVER, the same non-response to my calls, texts, and emails are never answered by city administration – from the mayor, department heads, assistants, council members. Are they all that …

Jim must be REAL desperate to sell papers trying to bring in “opposing voices,” but what’s the reality of this? Conservative Americans are routinely silenced, censored, persecuted, and imprisoned for trying to speak the truth, something that cannot be said of the Left in any capacity, even i…

After yet another unpleasant extended wait to make a purchase during what was originally planned to be a quick stop at the store, I have to wonder: Am I the only one who wishes that the individual(s) who decided that placing lottery and scratch-off cards in what used to be considered “conven…

The tragedy that took place in Smith County this week when a Raleigh high school football player lost his life hit so close to home for me (and those in the West Jones community) that it brought me to tears for several hours on Wednesday and while writing this, I still am shaken up.

It seems as though about half of the people want to be able to abort a baby right up to the time for it to be born.  I’m in the half that believes there should be no abortions except in the case of rape, incest, or to protect the mother.  On the other hand about half of the people want to le…

Sir, you just hit the nail on the head. Great opinion piece (Jim Cegielski column of Sept. 10). Biden’s Independence Hall speech looked like it came straight from hell, and it probably did just that. Shame on this would-be dictator. Judas Joe Biden, and his Democrat denizens, are now operati…

Mrs. Flints letter last Thursday is the greatest piece of evidence I can present for the erosion of my faith in “American Democracy.” This is what we have to contend with: Low information voters who willingly believe endless falsehood’s under the pretense of “Our Democracy.”

I am writing to pray for wholesomeness for our nation under siege continuously with COVID sicknesses. Thank you, dear Lord Jesus for Your healing warmth to encircle and eradicate this heavy burden that has stayed way too long.

I’ve been waiting impatiently for someone else to say something about the incident at the New York subway station. They have said plenty, but not about what I saw. This officer was having a dangerous fight with a 16-year-old, large for his age. It appeared the teen was going to kill him. His…

The very first letter I wrote to the paper a year and change ago was a response to Jim saying something along the lines of “Obama ushered in an age of socialism to America.” I rebutted that no, he didn’t usher it in, Obama is just when y’all started paying attention. Here I am again to say t…

I was shocked when I watched Outnumbered on Fox News today. Richard Fowler was the non-child producing person on the program. and while the program was on President Biden spoke about abortion rights.

Who needs a high capacity magazine on a pistol or rifle? Not everyone for sure. Some people don’t need a homemade sling-shot. I don’t have all the answers to the problems of mass shootings. I do think there should be not soft targets. We need more security, security, security, for our childr…

I call on someone in our Legislature to introduce a bill that would have “enhance penalty” for killing or harming an animal that’s a “registered” mascot. Cousin Wiley said: “Ocean Springs” is the home town of “Walter Anderson.” Walter would have water colored “Carl” for sure. “Walter” and “C…

I was really embarrassed when I read about the “Mother of the Year” assaulting the young lady umpire from Ellisville following a youth softball game. I have played in hundreds of baseball and softball games and never once saw or heard of one of the umpires being assaulted.

I didn’t for the longest time understand why there was such an uproar from teachers over Florida’s “Parental Rights In Education” bill, but as I’ve seen a flurry of articles about teachers molesting kids, it all started to make sense: These people are groomers.

I am writing to you to commend one of you staff members, Mr. Bradshaw. During a recent visit to Ellisville to locate my father’s grave, Mr. Bradshaw went above and beyond to assist me to find the location. Having only just learned of my father’s identity, my sister and I planned a trip to El…
