Editorial: Explaining policies that cause job losses/growth is key to Obama victory

Posted on August 9, 2012 |
By Angelo Lynn



No candidate wants to embrace a national unemployment rate of 8.3 percent and suggest it is an accomplishment of a president’s first four years in office. On the other hand, it is imperative the president remind the nation how far the economy had fallen in the aftermath of President George W.

Games always prove gripping

Posted on August 9, 2012 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



As usual, the Olympics have hooked me. No, I haven’t watched the London Games 24/7. The need to stain our deck, get our new desktop computer up to speed and other household chores have gotten in the way. Oh, and they actually expect me to show up for work, too. The nerve.

Still, my family and I have watched a fair amount, some live on our desktop, some painfully parceled out by NBC in primetime, and some recorded on our DVR. The DVR is great because it allows us to skip through video of gymnasts and swimmers when they were kids, not to mention Super Pac ads.
