So, I voted for Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election.I can hear it now, "Boo, hiss," and punches getting thrown in the air. But, I'm proud of it. I have no regrets whatsoever. It's strange how we "deplorables," as Hillary Clinton called us, have to keep our enthusiasm for our president restrained or face ...

CAMDEN, S.C. -- While recently perusing unread books gathering dust on my shelves, one tome caught my eye and, upon being loosed from the grip of neglect, fell open to a random page from which leapt the following sentence: "The ancestors of a critical and growing mass of present-day Americans ...
Are you really, really good at something? That question came to my mind yesterday morning when contemplating what to write about this week.

"I think we've got the House," one California Democrat said to me not long ago. "It's the Senate we need to focus on." I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. Cry, I think. This is how Democrats lose the House. I don't know that there has ever been a time, in my lifetime anyway, in which perceptions varied so ...
Today the Catholic Church in the United States celebrates what many celebrated Jan. 6 -- the Solemnity of Epiphany. St. Matthew tells us: "When Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea, in the days of King Herod, behold, magi from the east arrived in Jerusalem, saying, 'Where is the newborn king of the ...
After reading the recent column by Jennifer Rubin of The Washington Post, I can only say the insulting, self-righteous remarks she made were outrageous. She made guidelines for "staying sane in 2018" and one of them was to stop paying attention to Rust Belt diners. Evidently, they are part of the ignorant ...

Nothing gets the creative juices flowing like bitter cold temperatures that will stop you in your tracks.

But it did give me the opportunity to sell a weekend getaway to Colorado as a ...
Indeed, there were almost none, if we are to believe an anonymous witness who testified before the Washington, D.C., grand jury that has been handing down indictments in special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Donald Trump's campaign and administration. New York Post columnist Richard ...
I'm typing these words on the morning of New Year's Eve 2017. Each sentence is punctuated by a coughing fit. Once again, Betsy and I have found ourselves sick during the holiday season, something that has become a pattern in recent years. The over-the-counter medication we're taking claims in big ...

Every year at this time I join a growing number of journalistic flagellants in enumerating things that I got wrong in the previous annum's worth of columns. When I started the practice, the annual audit sometimes felt a little bit too scrupulous, like picking nits with my own work. But the last two years have been ...
I asked my fellow op-ed columnists and our editors here to choose one piece by each columnist that's worth revisiting at year's end. They're listed below, along with each columnist's most-read column of the year, according to our digital metrics. You'll notice that President Trump dominates the list of ...
On Wednesday, the 335th day of his presidency, Donald J. Trump did something most extraordinary and uncharacteristic. He told the truth.

Not surprisingly, Donnie Johnston is in the hot seat again. Maybe he never left. There are many negative comments about what he says, but we are overlooking the beauty of his place in the Free Lance-Star. Donnie is a conversation-starter by the coffee pot at work.

We journalists like to boast about how many clicks our stories get, or how our columns go viral. Fair enough, but today let me show off my clunkers. These are pieces I wrote that nobody read.

I was introduced to Gary Abernathy, the publisher and editor of The (Hillsboro) Times-Gazette, twice. My first introduction came through his writing, particularly his "Did I ever tell you my Roy Rogers story?" The second, more formal introduction came through his wife, Lora, who was editor of the Wilmington ...
The darkness we curse in December makes that month an appropriate ending for the old year, its joys, and, more to the point, its sorrows. Our ancestors could have chosen any season as the transition from year to year, as both the Romans and the Babylonians did. For them, the new year began in the ...
On this shortest, darkest day of this longest, darkest year, we look in longing for light. The light of the internet blares the truth my spirit has already sensed.

From traffic to appointments and drive-thru to the checkout line, life demands patience. And patience is one thing that is so hard for our little ones.

As a professional in the field of parenting education and teacher training for the past 40 years -- roughly the same amount of time as John Rosemond -- I once again must respond to the arrogant psychologist-bashing and parent-shaming diatribes he regularly spews onto the page.
