Tragedy. Sometimes it feels like that’s all we hear about. In the news, from friends or, unfortunately, it’s something we ourselves have to witness firsthand.

Have you ever noticed the banners promoting city events on the lamp posts throughout Lodi’s beautiful downtown area? So have I. However, some of the banners just repeat the same thing. Here’s an idea. Instead of having multiple repeats, why not mix promotional banners with banners honoring Lodi’s own brave men and women of the armed forces?

Over the last few months the Obama administration has been at the center of much scrutiny. Scrutiny because this executive branch has been allegedly involved in several different scandals.

You haven't heard from me in a while. I apologize. No, I didn't get canned; no, I didn't quit the column; and no, I didn't move to Canada right after the presidential election, but thank you for your email concern.

We are thankful for a bountiful harvest of wine grapes. Many people enjoy wine, and the word is the yields were strong and the quality in the bottle is going to be great. There's even reliable information that prices are strong.

I want to comment on Wade Heath's column of Oct. 25, expressing his opinion on why he has lost faith in President Obama. Wade, you have a right to an opinion as well as anyone. As I read your comments your facts just didn't jive. What are your sources for news? Your statements sound like sound bites from Fox News.

You might recall that just a few months after President Obama took office I submitted that I was throwing in the towel. I didn't vote for him, but since he won, I was holding out that this out-of-nowhere junior senator from Illinois we knew nothing about was going to live up to the hype. I don't think any sane citizen fancies their leadership to fail thus, further hurting their country.

When is our time up? At what point do things simply implode?

The United States of America was born because men felt it burning within that they could rule themselves. That freedom wasn't something you were given by another man with a title, but something that you were born with.

The Bible and religion have been under attack by an anti-bullying speaker. The Occupy movement marched across America yelling stuff and breaking things while promising more action in the future and a socialist regime has risen in France. Ah, the future looks bright, doesn't it?

Regarding the column by Wade Heath in the April 5 edition of the Lodi News-Sentinel, I would like to point out the glaring inaccuracy in his opening paragraph.

The Department of Homeland Security posted in an announcement online on Monday that they would be issuing "unlawful presence waivers" to illegal immigrants in order to stop them from being deported. The catch is that the illegal aliens will need to prove they have a family member who is a legal American citizen in order to qualify for the waiver.

Every once in a while, I have this strange urge to cut loose on multiple topics. I call it the combo column.

Willard Mitt Romney. Where to begin? His tax personal income
rate? His horrible inability to connect with normal people?

Since last we met, a lot has changed in the GOP presidential
race. For one, the very left-leaning Jon Huntsman has "suspended"
his campaign, thus thinning the herd even more. Two more debates
have taken place, bringing the total to 4,291 or so, I've lost
count. And the coolest man alive, President Barack Obama, is
suddenly taking a "small government" stance, calling for more power
to help minimize the effect bloated government has.

Oh, my (yawns). I feel like I've been asleep for the last year.
I certainly hope you enjoyed my kumbaya-ish hiatus. It was nice to
switch things up and focus on nothing but the positive during an
otherwise bleak 2011. But friends, it's 2012, and there isn't
anything more important to me this year than the presidential
election and the future of this country.

It's that time of year when the world falls in love! And also
that time of year where I, your humble correspondent, score the
biggest interview of the season. Of course I'm talking about my
one-on-one with Santa Claus.

Multiple topics; one space. Time for a combo column.

I'm not buying it. Those, ahem, "protesters" down on Wall Street
are holding signs of Marxist, communistic dreams, calling for
guaranteed wages and complete debt forgiveness. I'm amazed at how
much of a platform the media has been giving these unemployed
revolutionaries. They work overtime to portray them as some sort of
genuinely frustrated everyman who just wants what's best for

As a country, we've changed a lot over time. Gone are the days
of the traditional four-member family where dad provided, mom
supported, and Beaver and Wally learned valuable lessons by the end
of the episode. Present are the days of singleor divorced-parent
homes where the parent works overtime just to survive and junior is
off teaching himself because there is no one there for him.

Born in the late 1980s, I only remember former President Ronald
Reagan as someone in my history book who called on Mr. Gorbachev to
“tear down this wall!” Even more irrelevant in my life was former
President Richard Nixon. I only knew of him because of the
paragraph or two demonizing him in my history book for the

Ah, summer. A time to relax, unwind and take a "you" moment or
two. Whether it is a trip down the waterslide or catching up with
an old friend, summer is the perfect season for it, with endless
days and comfortable nights.

On July 4, 1776, the world changed.
It was, until that time, unacceptable for man to govern himself.
To act on one's own free will and accept responsibility for one's
actions was but a dream.
But that dream was made real by men who were starving for
liberty and still had hope enough to rebel against a tyrannical
government and declare a new land, free from the shackles of
oppression they all once shared.
