    The audience applauded Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz's withering criticism of President Obama. Photo by Isaac Epstein/ DOVER — More than 150 people visited David and Lydia Scott’s farm off Back Road in Dover on a misty, perfect Sunday morning, to meet Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz. Although the majority were New Hampshire residents, folks like Conrad Baldini made the trek from Salem, Massachusetts. “He is really dynamic,” explained Baldini. “I really look forward to seeing and hearing him in person.” If elected president, Cruz said he would tackle the IRS, illegal immigration, education and the Affordable Care Act, otherwise...

    In a stunning move just two days before the season-opening Daytona 500, NASCAR suspended Kurt Busch indefinitely on Friday after a judge said the former champion almost surely strangled and beat an ex-girlfriend last fall and there was a "substantial likelihood" of more domestic violence from him in the future. NASCAR said Busch would not be allowed to race or participate in any NASCAR activities until further notice given the "serious nature of the findings and conclusions" made by the Delaware judge. "Kurt Busch and his Stewart-Haas Racing team are fully aware of our position and why this decision was...

    A school board member in one New Hampshire city is looking to bring an end to the high school's football program. In a meeting on Monday, Paul Butler, a retired physician and member of the Dover School Board, claimed that trying to stop football both at the high school and throughout Dover was the "moral" and "ethical" thing to do in light of recent studies on the sport's impact on overall health and well-being. Butler reportedly cited literature that draws a connection between concussions incurred during football and long-term cognitive impacts in his argument. The former physician also claims that...

    The policy was in place for four years after being introduced when Labour was in power, but never disclosed to Parliament. It was implemented because the French complained about congestion in Calais caused by backlogs at passport control. Ministers discovered the scheme earlier this month and ended it ten days ago when the Border Agency official in charge of the southern ports was suspended, along with Brodie Clark, the director of the UK Border Force, who was accused of relaxing passport checks at airports on non-European Union citizens without ministers' permission. The Dover scandal has the potential to be bigger...

    The Dover Air Force Base mortuary for years disposed of some dead troops’ body parts by burning them and dumping the ashes in a Virginia landfill, a practice that officials have since abandoned in favor of burying the remains at sea. The Dover mortuary, which is the main point of entry for America’s war dead, sent remains to the landfill from 2003 until 2008, according to Air Force officials. The manner of disposal was typically withheld from the relatives of fallen service members. The disclosure comes in the aftermath of several federal investigations into mishandling of remains at the mortuary....

    Federal investigators said Tuesday they uncovered “gross mismanagement” at the Dover Air Force Base mortuary that cares for America’s war dead after whistleblowers reported horror stories of lost body parts, shoddy inventory controls and lax supervision. The former mortuary commander and two other senior officials have been disciplined – but not fired -- in response to separate investigations conducted by the Air Force Inspector General, the Secretary of the Air Force and the Office of Special Counsel, an independent federal agency that also received the whistleblower complaints. The grisly findings at Dover echo a similar scandal at another hallowed repository...

    Leadership: Disrespecting grieving families, the president sneaks a photographer into the ceremony honoring the SEALs who died in Afghanistan. The presidential scrapbook and campaign are more important. We thought perhaps the White House had received a sufficient dose of condemnation as well as some sensitivity training over a planned Sony film hyping President Obama's "gutsy call" regarding the successful Navy SEAL mission that killed Osama bin Laden. The film was to be released three weeks before the 2012 vote. We were wrong. When 30 U.S. Special Operations forces, including Navy SEALs from SEAL Team 6, the unit that got the...

The court has overturned a judgment by the state's Human Relations Commission that 23 black cinema goers should each be awarded $1,500 for being told to be quiet by David Stewart. Carmike 14 Theatre, in Dover, was told to make the payouts after 'insulting, humiliating and demeaning' patrons during a showing of the Tyler Perry movie Why Did I Get Married? in October 2007.

    In an interview with Fox News on Sunday, Rush Limbaugh suggested that President Obama's recent visit to Dover Air Force Base was nothing more than a staged photo-op. This elicited a torrent of outrage from pundits in the liberal mainstream media. Conversely, when Obama made similar remarks about former president Bush, the mainstream media didn't even bat an eyelash. As I noted in my previous post, in March of 2007, President Bush toured Walter Reed Army Medical Center after he had learned of the dilapidated conditions there and the poor quality of care that the patients were receiving - which...

"It was a photo-op precisely because he's having big-time trouble on this whole Afghanistan dithering situation," Limbaugh told "Fox News Sunday." "He can create the impression that he has all this great concern," Limbaugh charged. Obama said his overnight trip to view the returning flag-draped caskets of 18 Americans killed in Afghanistan at Dover Air Force Base Thursday will "bear on how I see" the war. He is expected...

    DOVER AIR FORCE BASE, DEL. -- When the first Bush administration banned the media from covering the arrival of the fallen at Dover Air Force Base during the Persian Gulf War nearly 20 years ago, the stated reason was to protect the families' privacy. But in the six months since the controversial ban was lifted and 258 families were allowed to choose whether they wanted the media present, 60 percent said yes, according to the military. In August, the Pentagon quietly amended the policy so that families were given a third option for coverage. Now they can have military camera...

    (SNIP) And then there's Phoenix International Raceway, the iconic desert mile nestled at the base of the Estrella Mountains outside of town. While it's renowned for producing great racing, the 44-year-old facility lacks most of the comforts of the other, newer stadiums in the greater Phoenix market. The vast majority of its 76,812 grandstand seats are simple aluminum bleachers. With the exception of suites spanning the first two turns and a tunnel that replaced a pedestrian bridge, this rather austere facility still looks very much like it did decades ago. In a city famous for its sports stadiums, Phoenix's racetrack...

    A packet for educators issued by the Public Broadcasting System (PBS) in conjunction with the NOVA program "Judgment Day: Intelligent Design on Trial" encourages teaching practices that are probably unconstitutional, a conservative organization stated on Tuesday. "The NOVA/PBS teaching guide encourages the injection of religion into classroom teaching about evolution in a way that likely would violate current Supreme Court precedents about the First Amendment's Establishment Clause," said John West, vice president for public policy and legal affairs at the Discovery Institute, in a news release. The 22-page document is a companion piece to the two-hour NOVA docudrama, "Judgment Day,"...

    Breakpoint with Chuck Colson ^ | 2/2/2007 | Chuck Colson
    Judge John Jones once told the Philadelphia Inquirer that he became a judge hoping that someday he would have a chance “to rule in matters of great importance.” Well, last year he got his chance. He ruled on Kitzmiller v. Dover, holding that you could not teach intelligent design in public schools. But given what’s leaked out about his decision, Judge Jones is not likely to be remembered as “an outstanding thinker,” as Time magazine called him. Instead, we might remember him as the judge who let a litigant write his opinion. Maybe I am an idealist, but going back...
