A Thanksgiving wish

Let’s keep this simple, and let’s keep people safe: Thanksgiving is upon us, and painful as the thought may be, it can’t be a holiday the same as any other.

A nose for the news

You can learn a lot by following the news. Even if you’re following it somewhere else.

Healthy debate

With the Obama Administration turning its attention to health care reform, a point you’ll no doubt be hearing in the weeks and months to come is that federal health insurance programs already are broke or will go bust sometime soon. Because of this, the argument goes, it would be the height of folly for the government to assume even more responsibility for the nation’s medical bills. We just can’t afford it. Why take on more costs when you can’t cover the obligations already on the books?

Let the races begin

With Tuesday’s qualifying deadline for School Board having come and gone, competitive races are set in all three districts (2, 3 and 6) that will be on the ballot this fall. Two districts will produce a newcomer regardless of who wins, as current trustees Steve Anderson and Mac McDowell are stepping down. In Election District 3 incumbent Arthur Reynolds will face a challenge from Kim Farson of Vernon Hill, making her first try for public office.

News & Record endorsement: Deeds and Signer for Virginia

The News & Record enthusiastically endorses Creigh Deeds for governor and Michael Signer for lieutenant governor in the Democratic primary Tuesday, June 9.

What a pleasant surprise — this week The Washington Post endorsed Creigh Deeds in the June 9 Democratic primary for governor. The Post’s editorial is available on-line at www.washingtonpost.com and is well worth reading in full, but I especially liked this part:
