Mike Espy has a history of surrounding himself with shady characters, many of them right here in Madison County. A simple Google search will lead to his scandalous tenure as Secretary of Agriculture during the Clinton administration.

  • EDITORIAL/Dewey Arthur for judge
    Conservative Dewey Arthur is in a run-off for Circuit Court Judge with a liberal trial lawyer.
  • GIBERT/Do the Republicans really control the federal agenda?
    When President Trump emerged victorious in 2016, along with Republican majorities in both the House and Senate, many hailed the night as ushering in a new era of government.  Where the path was seemingly paved to achieve key legislative priorities for conservatives:  Repeal ObamaCare, defund Planned Parenthood, build the wall, defund Sanctuary Cities, and cut taxes.  Easy, huh?
  • DUNCAN/Like Father Like Son
    Turn to Genesis 26:1-17. Chapter 26 of Genesis tells us more about Isaac than any other of the sections which speak of this son of Abraham. In this passage, we have three distinct scenes set before us. First, a description of Isaac’s sojourn in Gerar and God's confirmation of the covenant made with Abraham is presented in verses 1-6. Next, Isaac's repetition of the same sin that his father previously committed is presented in verses 7-11. Finally, a description of God’s blessings on Isaac’s life and the envious behavior of the Philistines is presented in verses 12-17.  
  • GETTING THE MESSAGE/Isaiah 66:2
    Last week we saw Moses implementing a governmental structure for the people of Israel. He acted in response to some good advice from his father-in-law Jethro. The heart of the structure was for Moses to focus on teaching the people the Word of the Lord and choose men who feared God to be helpers in judging and leading the people.

  • In the overtime of the 2018 elections, the left can’t decide whether it opposes casting doubt on election results or insists on it. 
  • Did former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg just take a page out of the playbook of Sen. Ed Muskie from half a century ago?
  • It’s appropriate that the U.N. special rapporteur devoted to adequate housing has visited encampments in Mexico City, Buenos Aires, Mumbai — and San Francisco, Oakland and Berkeley.
  • EDITORIAL/Reforming health care
    No one is guaranteed a tomorrow, but expectations run pretty high for happy days in the here and now. Americans consider first-rate health care a right tucked somewhere in the Constitution, between baseball and free hot dogs. 
  • Saturday, in Pittsburgh, a Sabbath celebration at the Tree of Life synagogue became the site of the largest mass murder of Jews in U.S. history. Eleven worshippers were killed by a racist gunman.
