Today is the first anniversary of the horrid Parkland shooting. It coincides with Valentine’s Day. For the love of our children, we need changes! 17 dead kids, 17 more people injured, BECAUSE of (1) America’s long-standing neglect of our mentally ill and (2) the Supreme Court did not understand the words “A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State” in the 2d Amendment … or they simply...

Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman convicted: Notorious drug lord once deemed Chicago’s Public Enemy No. 1

Jordan, who was incarcerated in a state prison...

Letter to the Editor: The time has come for recreational cannabis

Posted by on Feb 10, 2019 in Featured, War on Drugs | Comments

It is just a matter of time, but the time is NOW! Yes, our governor echos the same dumb comments made by some legislators. The Letter: I attended the Smyrna Town Hall meeting on Jan. 30 and asked our governor about the potential for legalization/regulation of cannabis in the First State. What I heard in response, though, left me with cold. He seemed to ignore any financial benefits of a well-designed program that could bring much-needed funds...
