  • Clear Creek falls late to Raiders

    On a sunny Saturday morning in mid-March, the setting couldn’t of been more perfect for the Clear Creek Golddiggers lacrosse team to play host to the Rangeview Raiders. Both teams struggled in their respective season openers and looked to avoid falling into an 0-2 start on the year. For Clear Creek, much more would be at stake, like an opportunity to get into the win column for the first time in over a year and the opportunity to do it in front of their home fans.

  • The insanity that is health care

    As the “Obamacare repeal” and the “Ryancare replace” drama continues to unfold, a diminishing few truly understand the conservative position and opposition.

    Simply put, an alarming number of Republicans (perhaps those In Name Only) dodge the two fundamental questions that should be driving the debate. Is health care a right or a privilege and what are we, as citizens of the United States, entitled to?

  • GOP plan has unintended consequences

    “I can’t imagine that they could just cut it off.”

    — Melinda Champion

    Melinda might want to re-imagine because they — congressional Republicans — could and would do just that. “It” being the $4,100 annual credit Melinda and her husband Robert receive courtesy of Obamacare to pay for her osteoporosis medicines and gastric sleeve and Robert’s blood pressure medicine, life-sustaining treatments for both.

  • Who is willing to take a punch?

While many are familiar with his father’s legacy and experience in developing New York City real estate, Roy Cohn first achieved a measure of notoriety as an aide to Sen. Joseph McCarthy.

He famously advised the Trumps that, “When they hit you once, hit them back a hundred times!”
