The Trumpenstein Monster

For at least 30-plus years the GOP has pushed a white supremacy agenda to divide and conquer the electorate. Lee Atwater wrote that since outright racial slurs weren’t selling the party platform like hotcakes anymore, they needed to switch to code words all too well known today as dog whistles – meaning anything liberals approved. […]

Greatest Climate Change Event Ever

“Tell me not, in mournful numbers, life is an empty dream!  Dead is the soul that slumbers and things are not as they seem.  Life is real and the grave is not its goal; from dust thy art, to dust return, this was not spoken of the soul.” (Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, A Psalm of Life) […]

First Amendment Defense Act

Representative Sam Graves is against The First Amendment Defense Act (H.R. 2802) that would prevent the federal government from discriminating against individuals, businesses, and organizations, based on their beliefs that marriage is the union of a man and woman or that sexual relations are reserved for marriage. The bill simply affirms that the federal government […]

More Outsourcing?

Dr. Tobler talks a good game, doesn’t He?  But when it comes down to what upset me – the outsourcing of jobs our community needs and that should be done onsite in our own hospital – I can’t agree with him.  And, if my information is correct, there are other jobs that may be lost […]

Re: Climate Change

It is astonishing how little perspective many people have about our place in expanse of the universe. There’s only one planet in the universe that supports life as we know it. Our interplanetary probes in this solar system have proven we are alone on Earth. And we don’t have the technology yet to search other […]


Most folks have probably already heard about the FCC’s plan to expand lifeline broadband to all low-income households in the very near future, even those without school-age children in the home.  That’s a good thing for seniors, many of whom are already too isolated in their communities, and it will enable them to keep in […]

Hospital Business Office

I had the pleasure of talking with Ms. Armstrong on the phone after she logged a complaint with our business office about a courtesy call she received from the hospital’s extended business office. I’m thankful that she took the time to have a conversation over the phone, rather than throw us under the bus on […]

Hospital Billing

To the taxpayers in Scotland County:  Did you know that a portion of the billing department at the Scotland County Hospital has been outsourced to a company in Jefferson City???  Do you care that you support the hospital with your tax dollars and your money is paying for someone’s wages in Jefferson City instead of […]

Climate Change

Dear Editor, I was intrigued to see the article in last week’s paper with the provocative title “The American People Aren’t Stupid Enough to Buy the Man-Made Climate Change Crisis Narrative.” I, too, believe in the collective intelligence of the American people as they weigh the facts and draw their own conclusions about human-made climate […]

Everything You Think You Know About Republicans and Climate Change is Wrong

Everything You Think You Know About Republicans and Climate Change is Wrong

by Mark Reynolds Here’s what we know about climate change: 97 percent of climate scientists are convinced, based upon the evidence, that human-caused global warming is happening. The popular narrative in the media these days, however, is that Republicans in Congress don’t accept this fact and that the GOP is in denial about the science […]
