                    Dr. Mara Karlin’s academic credentials are a mile long. She is a summa cum laude graduate of Tulane University in political science with distinction in strategic studies and the Middle East. She earned a master’s degree in economics and a Ph.D. in international affairs from from Johns Hopkins University....

                      • Congress should vote on clean spending bills

                        If you remove the details of the latest U.S. government shutdown, I believe you can say tradition is the culprit. For too many years, Congress attempts to pass multi-purpose bills. It is not without a reason; that is why it never changes. Both warring political parties think it is to their benefit...

                            Gov. Ralph Northam used his first speech to the General Assembly to seek common ground with Republicans on workforce training, education and economic development, but he also forcefully called for expansion of the state’s Medicaid program as “a matter of basic economic justice” and challenged them...

                                A little is too much of the absurd and disgusting behaviors of Donald Trump (fake president). It’s time for Republicans to push the handle and send DT down the porcelain receptacle of which he is so well versed. It’s time to engage the exit strategy to rid our nation of this vile and repugnant...

                                    Mail problems When did the post office drop their motto and stop delivering without any notice? I haven’t had deliveries for the past six days, long past the snow. To make matters worse, when I went to the post office to mail a package, the drop-off bins were taped shut. And now Amazon is using...

                                        Snow days Five days without school for less than a foot of snow? Plus two weekend days between? Absolutely embarrassing. We have a serious infrastructure issue. Maybe the lawyers and high-profile school superintendent can be cut and the savings applied to plows and sand spreaders. I went shopping...

                                            Winter weather The writer of “Winter weather” must keep in mind that weather is not the same as climate. A spate of exceptionally cold temperatures over the minuscule portion of the world’s surface that the eastern U.S. represents does not mean the Arctic’s ice is not melting, that alpine glaciers...

                                                Back at school Students need to practice using their “toolbox” in school so they will be equipped to solve bigger problems down the road.
