James Traficant R.I.P. Rush Limbaugh was right. He called former Youngstown, Ohio sheriff turned Democrat Congressman Jim Traficant “A one-in-a-million character.” I’d forgotten this: Jim Traficant played quarterback at Pitt and was a teammate of Mike Ditka. Traficant tried out for the Pittsburgh Steelers and Oakland Raiders, also holds two masters degrees. He was an unforgettable guy.
Look what Barry Goldwater and Ronald Reagan had to put up with - constant abuse from their own party. Establishment Repubs hated both, tried to sabotage both, says Mark Levin - true! Later on Goldwater tried to destroy Reagan’s campaign, but that is another story. Barry wasn’t right mentally in his final years. That was when liberals began to praise him. When Barry was sharp in 1964 liberals hated him, which tells us a lot about liberals.

Retiring Attorney General Eric Holder wasn’t new to Washington, D.C. (District of Corruption). Left-winger Holder previously served as deputy Attorney General under Bill Clinton during Clinton’s second term. Remember when the media left assured us that Clinton was a “moderate” or Southern “conservative” Democrat during the 1992 campaign?

How would you feel if people were constantly throwing trash in your yard? I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t like it one bit.
We should feel the same way about people polluting our county. The majority of the time, it’s our own citizens doing the polluting. If you are one who pollutes, please realize what you’re doing. It doesn’t take much time to dispose of your garbage the proper way, pick up the garbage you see in town or even recycle it if possible. By doing so, you could be saving an animal’s life, making our county look beautiful or even starting your garbage’s journey to a new product if you recycle!
Something we don’t realize is the fact that littering and polluting has a negative effect on animals. Picture a plastic bag, a bottle cap or a Coke can floating down a river or in a pond. All kinds of animals in the river use it as a source of drinking water or to get their prey from it. What if a fish mistook that plastic bag for something that it eats? It’s going to get sick and die. Animals often confuse litter thrown in their environment as food that they usually eat. Sometimes the animals can even get entangled and injure themselves in the garbage people leave behind. That could change if we disposed of our garbage properly instead of polluting the rivers and ponds. [Full Story »]

Last Sunday, hundreds of thousands marched throughout the world demanding action on climate change. One hundred twenty world leaders gathered in New York for the United Nations (U.N.) Summit on Climate Change. What can we do?
A 2006 U.N. report estimated that meat production accounts for 18 percent of man-made greenhouse gases. A 2009 article in the respected World Watch magazine suggested that the contribution might be closer to 50 percent.
The meat industry generates carbon dioxide by burning forests to create animal pastures and by combustion of fossil fuels to confine, feed, transport and slaughter animals. The much more damaging methane and nitrous oxide are discharged from digestive tracts of cattle and from animal waste cesspools, respectively.
In an environmentally sustainable world, wind, solar and other pollution-free energy sources must gradually replace polluting fossil fuels. Similarly, vegetables, fruits, nuts and grains must replace polluting meat and dairy products. The large variety of widely available plant-based entrees, lunchmeats, veggie burgers, cheeses and ice creams can certainly help.
Our next trip to the supermarket is a great opportunity to start the transition to a sustainable world. Our favorite Internet search engine offers ample product lists, recipes and dietary tips.
To all citizens of Dodge and surrounding counties,
The purpose of my writing is to offer my support of Breast Cancer Awareness every month, but especially as we promote that awareness during the month of October.
A heartfelt thanks goes out to Rose Clark and Faith in Action Church, of which Ms. Clark has been a long-time member. Through the actions and efforts of Ms. Clark and the church, awareness has been raised as to the importance of screening, which leads to the early detection of breast cancer.
Approximately one in eight women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some point in their lives. The good news is that breast cancer can be treated if detected early. Many people may not be aware of this, but breast cancer also occurs in men. More than 2,000 men are diagnosed with breast cancer each year. So let’s help spread the word, encouraging both men and women to be screened regularly.
