    Have you heard the saying “strong is the new skinny”? What if you could have both? It may be as easy as taking a fresh look at the past. The Paleo Diet, or the caveman diet, means eating and acting like a caveman. To sustain the diet, you can only eat things you gather, hunt or pick. Pinecrest resident Thad Foot, 38, said the diet gives him strength to do stand up paddle boarding. “I want to get stronger,” he said. Tara Grant, 37, did the same diet for a different reason. “I had polycystic ovarian syndrome,” said Grant. “Now,...

    Things change, sometimes for the good, sometimes for the bad. For example, your kids health. Every parent wants healthy kids. But are the "times" making it harder to keep your kids healthy? Maybe. Let us take a stroll back in time. Healthy kids may just mean getting back to basics.

    Karl Rove offered comforting words to grieving Republicans in an article published Thursday: “History will favor Republicans in 2010. Since World War II, the out-party has gained an average of 23 seats in the U.S. House and two in the U.S. Senate in a new president’s first mid-term election. Other than FDR and George W. Bush, no president has gained seats in his first mid-term election in both chambers.” Conservatives can only hope so. Early indications, however, point ominously the other way. Like the economy, the Republican party will most likely get sicker before it gets better. There are at...

    Barry M. Goldwater, Jr. endorsed Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul for president. “America is at a crossroads,” said Mr. Goldwater. “We have begun to stray from our traditions and must get back to what has made us the greatest nation on earth or we will lose much of the freedom we hold dear. Ron Paul stands above all of the other candidates in his commitment to liberty and to America.” “Leading America is difficult, and I know Ron Paul is the man for the job,” he added.

    It is time for the Republican party to get back to basics and once again reclaim our mantle as the party of vision, ideas and reform. Though reaction to the President's State of the Union address will no doubt initially be focused on his strategy in Iraq, I hope that proper attention is given to some of the other initiatives that the President discussed. Other initiatives that he outlined including balancing the budget, making private health insurance more affordable, personal and accessible to Americans, and replacing our dependence on Middle East oil with new sources of American oil and American...

    ANKENY, Iowa - Republicans can avert a disastrous midterm election this fall by returning to basic conservative themes that set them apart from Democrats, New York Gov. George Pataki said Saturday. "There will be a lot of change between now and November," Pataki said in an interview with The Associated Press. "I understand that it will be a tough year, but we have to get back to focusing on what Republicans stand for." Pataki was visiting Iowa, where he campaigned and raised money for legislative candidates, and tested the waters for a possible bid for the Republican presidential nomination in...

    Abraham Lincoln is one of America’s most beloved leaders. He was an advocate for the abolition of slavery, a skilled orator and a passionate defender of the union. He was also the first Republican to be elected president of the United States. Lincoln will be honored Feb. 5 during the Benton County Republican Women’s annual Lincoln Day Celebration Dinner. The event is the group’s primary fund-raiser of the year, and the money raised will go toward various community service projects, including its biggest project, donating dictionaries to fourth-graders around Benton County. In the last two years, the Benton County Republican...

    Democratic petition asks Steele to retract support for book on GOP, race Lierman calls publication 'divisive commentary' By David Nitkin Sun Staff June 10, 2005 The Maryland Democratic Party has launched a petition drive asking Lt. Gov. Michael S. Steele to repudiate his support of a book on the racial history of the Republican Party. Democratic Chairman Terry Lierman said Michael Zak, author of Back to Basics for the Republican Party, used inflammatory language during a Lincoln Day dinner in Southern Maryland last month. "Mastery over blacks has always been Democratic policy," the Calvert Recorder quoted Zak as saying during...

    The idea for implementing such a motion probably originated with an Internet posting on a conservative Web site written in 2003 by the author of “Back to Basics for the Republican Party,” Michael Zak, who has done extensive research on the GOP’s historical support for civil rights. The article brought Mr. Zak to the attention of the director of outreach at the Senate Policy Committee, Barbara Ledeen. Mr.Zak later explained his idea to a policy adviser in the office of the Senate majority leader, Senator Frist of Tennessee. Mr. Zak also sent his option idea by e-mail to several key...

    Bay Village Is a Fantastic Community We Plan To Make It Affordable Again It saddens me to see families - both young and old alike - to put up For Sale signs in the yards due to high property taxes. I am running for mayor because I am convinced Bay families need Tax Relief and they need it soon! Seniors are facing a daunting tax burden that I am convinced is disproportionate. The average families here in Bay are weighing whether or not they can afford to reside here much longer. We are losing people, who are otherwise quite happy...

    A ZENIT DAILY DISPATCH GENERATION X AND THE TURN TO CHRISTIAN ORTHODOXY Journalist Colleen Carroll on a Surprising TrendWASHINGTON, D.C., APRIL 29, 2003 (ZENIT) The growth of evangelical "mega-churches" has long been a focus of media attention. Much less noted has been the embrace of traditional Christianity by Generation X and the rejection of the religious and cultural values of that generation's parents, the baby boomers. A Gen-X journalist, Colleen Carroll, set about to document this trend. The result was a highly acclaimed book, "The New Faithful: Why Young Adults Are Embracing Christian Orthodoxy" (Loyola Press). Carroll described the...

    After SCOTUS and vouchers: The LEFT now rushes to embrace the RIGHT's "Back to Basics" movement for education by summer - a former Dem, now an independent and a FL certified teacher I had to chuckle to myself as I read the editorial, below, written by an unknown liberal and posted on one of the many Dem sites. The author is screaming out against the SCOTUS's recent voucher decision because, according to this angry liberal: Schools should ONLY teach the basics. Sound familiar? Oh, and by the way, according to this author, "the basics" does NOT include religion. People on...
