I think we are at a point where enough is truly enough. It makes me sick that I have become desensitized to seeing that another shooting has taken place. Of course, I am saddened and haunted at the reality that these tragedies take place, but I would be lying if I said they shock me like the…

At this point I think we can all agree on how terrible our current president is doing at his job. Sure, we all get a few extra dollars in our paychecks, there are a few more jobs available out there, but at what cost, we all hate each other. This is his doing, not Obama's or anyone else, it'…

Growing up some of my favorite movie were 80s action movies, where one or two heroes took on the legions of evil henchmen as well as diabolical villains with their teamwork, countless weapons, and snappy one liners. In this same vein I also really like buddy cop shows where there was banter …

I don’t buy much new. And when I do, I try to buy it at smaller local shops. There was one item that I just couldn’t find without heading to a big-box store. It was a light-up watch with a timer. I needed it for a job. I asked at three local stores and called three more before giving up and …

“I didn’t know where you were going at first…” remarked one of my congregants after a recent sermon. Most people who listen to sermons have probably thought that before…and so have the pastors preaching them. I’m a “manuscript preacher,” meaning I write out my sermons every week. There are d…

Last night, my wife and I had a casual conversation like any other married couple about a very normal topic: God. I hope, dear reader, that you can pick up on my sarcasm a bit. I do realize that this is often not a common casual topic of conversation – especially when spouses differ in their…

Let me just start with Go Blackhawks! I love Baldwin and Woodville. But when we think strategically about keeping small towns thriving, I have no time for talking down a neighboring town over another. In fact, if someone is considering moving to the area, I’ll try to sell them on Baldwin and…

After reading last week’s letter it’s quite apparent the writer hates this President. But over the last three plus years, he has gotten this country back to being respected and not taken advantage of - 180 degrees from Obama. Despite every trick played by the left and the democrats in Congre…

I have been asked to submit a letter to the editor on my thoughts about the current events so dominant on the news presently. The President of the U.S.A. is very slowly alienating almost every element of the American society. Putting a tariff on a great deal of goods imported from China (rai…

If you have been to the theater lately or caught any commercials, you will see that Disney is remaking all their classic movies into live action movies. Some critics of Disney have said this is simply a cash grab by the company because many of these movies were fine when they were first aire…

Part of the fun of my job is that I get to go around the region and do a fair amount of networking. Recently, the job called me to a nearby college town with a population four times the size of Baldwin. At the event, a couple of area business leaders were lamenting that “it’s tough in a smal…

The day I write this, July 17 in 2014, a tragic death was caught on film that shook the nation. Then 44-year-old Eric Garner, an African American man in New York City, was confronted by New York City Police Officers after he was alleged to have been selling untaxed cigarettes outside of a St…

If you’ve read my column, you know I like to talk about supporting local businesses. I often meet people of a certain distinguished age who blame my generation for purchasing from Amazon too often. But I tend to think that, although there are differences between generations, most of our prob…
