    The mother of a 7-year-old who was raped and murdered got some measure of payback by helping firefighters burn down the Orange Park, Fla., home once owned by the convicted killer. The man is now serving a life-sentence, and his residence, where the crime occurred, was torched as part of a training exercise for local firefighters.

    I saw this movie a couple of days ago and am still reeling from its presentation. It is the story of a family torn apart by the Korean war and how they work from being dirt poor to successful. It is a story of a family losing and finding its loved ones. It has the sweetest scene I have seen in ANY movie, but it's not staged or recorded. It's a real recording from history, which has a tremendous effect on those watching. It really happened. This movie is worth watching

    HOLLAND TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) – Two suspects accused of attacking a 21-year-old Holland Township man with a pickaxe and baseball bat have been arrested. Codi James Antoniello, 19, and a 16-year-old male were arrested Thursday at an apartment complex in Holland Township. Antoniello, who authorities say was trying to shave his head in order to alter his appearance when he was arrested, was arraigned Friday on charges of felonious assault and first-degree home invasion. The 16-year-old suspect will be charged as an adult in the case, according to the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office. He is currently being held in...

    LINCOLN, Neb. -- Bo Pelini was fired on Sunday, ending the seven-year run of the polarizing figure as Nebraska's football coach. "We weren't good enough in the games that mattered," athletic director Shawn Eichorst said in his meeting with the media that lasted nearly 35 minutes. "I didn't see that changing at the end of the day." Eichorst said he will not use a search firm to assist him in finding the next coach. "This isn't a day of celebration for me," he said. "We've got a lot of good, young people in our program who are hurting." Eichorst said...

    Back in the Reagan days the Republicans were the BLUE Party; the Democrats were the RED Party. Somebody changed it after Reagan left politics; the switcharoo has been attributed to Tim Russert. At the time I didn't like it, but, judging from today's politics, it may have been a good move. The Democrats are acting like the typical blue-bloods of history. Those were the elitists who made their own laws and own law enforcement system. They, as an aristocracy, kept a safe distance between their own properties and lives and those of the common man. This is what we have...

    NEWPORT BEACH – Two people were in the Orange County Jail this week, after police stopped them in a van with automatic rifles and ammunition. The van contained seven AK-47 assault rifles, six 30-round high-capacity 7.62 caliber magazines, two 10-round magazines and more than 350 rounds of 7.62 caliber ammunition inside, Newport Beach police spokeswoman Jennifer Manzella said. Manzella said the arrests are significant because of the weapons seized. All of the guns were modified to fire in fully automatic mode, and one had a barrel less than 16 inches in length in violation of California state law, she said....

    After already receiving a controversial $1.6 billion construction loan from U.S. taxpayers, the wealthy investors of a California solar power plant now want a $539 million federal grant to pay off their federal loan. "This is an attempt by very large cash generating companies that have billions on their balance sheet to get a federal bailout, i.e. a bailout from us - the taxpayer for their pet project," said Reason Foundation VP of Research Julian Morris. "It's actually rather obscene." The Ivanpah solar electric generating plant is owned by Google and renewable energy giant NRG, which are responsible for paying...

    "“Dear White People” is set at a fictional Ivy League school, Winchester University. The story centers on a group of mostly black students and their experiences. But Simien is quick to point out that Winchester is not Chapman. Instead, he says, Winchester is a microcosm of the larger society. Still, Simien’s first few drafts were based on what he terms a “thinly veiled” Chapman – “the black experience when you are in a non-black world.” He says it’s a subject rarely depicted in films. “I just thought it was an interesting and nuanced experience, and I wanted to talk about...

    Texas created enough jobs last month to help the state set a 12-month record. The Texas economy added 36,400 jobs in September, according to data released Friday by the Texas Workforce Commission. Over the past 12 months, employers added 413,700 jobs — the most ever recorded by the state. The unemployment rate fell to 5.2 percent in September, down from 5.3 percent in August. A year ago, the rate was 6.3 percent. “We’re having a broad -based increase in job growth in Texas, and sooner or later we’re going to have to see wage increases,” said Trinity University economist David...

    Thousands of protesters were marching through downtown Chicago on Sunday in support of Palestinians as Israeli forces continue a ground invasion in the Gaza Strip. Protesters were carrying Palestinian flags and signs reading “Save Gaza's children” and chanting “Free, free Palestine.” Salam Khatib, 19, of Valparaiso, Ind., participated in the march with seven of her family members. "We just hope people will expand their knowledge of what's going on in Palestine," she said. "It just doesn't make sense to me."

    If you fancy yourself as a .guru or any other newfangled Internet address, Google wants you to try out its new domain name registration service. The search giant quietly launched Google Domains on Monday as an invite-only beta service. It’s being billed as an easy way to set up an address on the Web with simple management tools. Until now, Google has told people looking to register that it “doesn’t register or host domain names.” It referred them to partner companies including GoDaddy and eNom. Google Domains, though, has features that might make people think twice before going with other...

    I realize that the late Sen. Goldwater is anathema to liberals, even to those who only know him as the unfortunate victim of a famous TV spot in which a little girl picking a flower appears to be vaporized by a nuclear bomb. The vile message in 1964 was that Goldwater was a nutburger who was anxious to get us involved in a nuclear showdown with the Soviet Union. Because most voters 50 years ago were just as dumb as they are today, 61% of them voted for LBJ, who took that as a signal to sink us even deeper...

    Time Magazine ^ | 6/11/2014 | Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
    Sports plays a role in perpetuating sexism and misogyny—and it can play a role in ending it. The most moving reading I’ve done in the last six months has come from the anguished tweets on #YesAllWomen that followed the Elliot Rodger shootings in Santa Barbara. Even more depressing than his horrific actions is the feeling that the national debates about cultural misogyny, mental health care, and gun control that followed have already lost momentum — shoved back into their dusty corner, awaiting the next bloody tragedy. Public outrage has a short half-life. Fist-shaking and finger-pointing quickly degenerates into helpless shrugging.

Tuition has increased at a rate double that of medical care, usually considered the most expensive of human necessities. It has outstripped any reasonable expectation people might have had for investments over the period. And, as we all know, it has crushed a generation...

    A magnitude 8.0 earthquake off the Solomon Islands has sparked a tsunami warning for the island nations of the south Pacific, with houses reported damaged in the Solomons.

Villagers had gone to higher ground as a precaution. The tsunami formed after the earthquake hit near Lata on Santa Cruz in Temotu province, the easternmost part of the Solomons a three-hour flight from the capital, Honiara. The region has a...

Asked what the Republican plan was to end poverty, he replied: In a nutshell, work works. It’s all about getting people to work. And when you were one of the leaders of welfare reform in the 1990’s, we got excoriated for saying that as a condition of welfare, people should go to work and it should be a bridge not a permanent system. And it worked very well, but there were dozens of other welfare programs that...

And how is it that the GOP hasn’t forced the Supreme Court to rule on the constitutionality of what he’s doing? No one is going to convince me that he has the legal authority to grant waivers to big businesses while forcing individuals to toe the line. Obama reminds me of the sort of sneak who...

    Last week at more than 200 colleges and high schools across the nation, students came together to arrange memorials on campus featuring thousands of flags representing each victim of Islamic terrorism on that date. Who could find that gesture offensive? Five student protesters at Middlebury College in Vermont, brainwashed by multiculturalist nonsense, that’s who. “The 9/11: Never Forget Project has been an annual nonpartisan event at Middlebury College for the past ten years,” writes Hillary Cherry, Program Officer of Public Relations there. The flags have been posted at Middlebury annually in a joint effort between the College Republicans and Democrats....

    The red, white and blue still flies happily but only in Russia. Russia still has St George defeating the Dragon with the symbol of the cross on its' flag. The ACLU and other atheist groups in America would never allow the US flag with such religious symbols. Lawsuits a plenty against religious freedom and expression in the land of the free. Christianity in the U.S. is under attack as it was during the early period of the Soviet Union when religious symbols were against the law.

    During the great depression, when there were even fewer jobs than there are today, there were still a great many men who refused to go on the dole, which was what welfare was called under FDR. That was only 75 or 80 years ago, but today, as you’ve probably noticed, their kids and grandkids can’t wait to start living off the efforts of others. Whether it’s seniors in Florida signing up for food stamps they don’t need, young people in the inner-city assuming they’re entitled to be supported by others because clowns like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson keep telling...

    I realize that's a provocative title, but let's face it, as things stand, the third Monday of January would be better used to celebrate grandmothers or our beloved pets. By devoting a national holiday to Rev. King, we're only highlighting the abyss that exists between his hope that we begin judging one another by our character rather than by our skin color and that inconvenient thing called reality. As we saw during the entire Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman brouhaha, the majority of blacks see everything in terms of black and white. And why wouldn't they when their so-called leaders, including the...

    I have long thought that we needed an radio show to address politics from a constitutional angle, one that educates the people on the benefits of our design of limited government and set a foundation for arguing with liberals. Hearing no such shows, I started my own. My second radio show airs tomorrow, Tuesday (August 6, 2013). We will be discussing the constitutional duties of the Executive, his fulfillment of those duties (not!), the cult following that he surfs, the lack of knowledge of his followers, and how to argue these points with the liberal. This is on latalkradio.com The...

    Running out to a 10-0 lead to start the game, the 2013 USA Basketball Men’s U16 National Team (1-0) left no doubt early that it was the dominate side and cruised to an eventual 130-31 victory over Mexico (0-1) to open play at the FIBA Americas U16 Championship in Maldonado, Uruguay. En route to the win, the U.S. set or tied three FIBA Americas U16 Championship and four USA U16 team records, including tying the highest point output in the two previouys U16 tournaments (2009 and 2011) held to date.
