  • Sleazy tactic crosses line

    Editor’s note: The following editorial is from the Providence (R.I) Journal and was originally published Aug. 24.

    Nobody expects a presidential campaign to be conducted by Marquis of Queensbury rules. It has long been clear that there are areas in the backgrounds of both major party candidates that lend themselves to attack advertisements. And there are plenty of issues to be exploited.

    But the ridiculous campaign that the Donald Trump forces have been running about Hillary Clinton’s health is sleazy even by the low standards of politics.

  • Work of Art: What’s so funny?

    I almost got my lights punched out, as a child over something that I swear was unintentional and unexpected.

    By Beth Urech

    Aldo Brito is a serious, well-spoken and responsible young man. In June he graduated from Northeastern Illinois University in Chicago. He’s now a qualified teacher.

    Then the horrific details of the crime began to emerge, and the full magnitude of the evil that was visited on little Victoria Martens left us stunned.

    The Albuquerque Journal detailed the horror in its Friday edition, citing police affidavits as its source:

  • Another Perspective: No more babies born in Vegas

    A very small infant in her mother’s arms was getting one of her first looks at the world in Traveler’s Coffee Café in Las Vegas.

    I couldn’t help but goo and coo at her. I began a conversation with the young couple. Where was the little one born?

    What are women doing in regard to the Alta Vista Regional Hospital Maternity Ward closure? That question has been on my mind since the hospital’s CEO, Mr. Chris Wolf, announced in March that due to “market conditions” he was forced to close the OB-GYN unit at Alta Vista.

  • Just a Thought: You just need to grin and bear it

    By Rick Kraft

    I have walked a bear down the streets of Atlanta. I stood by and watched a live bear tackle a Clemson Tiger mascot, laying him out flat on his back and then crawling on top of him. I watched a bear dragging a mini trampoline run onto the football field at West Point while a play was occurring on the field.
