    Conservative Ralph Norman has beaten the more centrist, establishment candidate for the Republican nomination for an open U.S. House seat in South Carolina and now faces the task of keeping the seat in GOP hands. The State Election Commission certified the results of this week’s runoff election after a recount Friday. Not a single vote changed from Tuesday’s count. Norman finished with a 221-vote win out of more than 35,000 ballots cast. Norman defeated Tommy Pope, the second-ranking Republican in the state House and a prosecutor who received national fame for prosecuting child killer Susan Smith nearly 23 years ago....

    A city councilwoman is asking homeowners in an Oklahoma college town to rename a street honoring a prominent former university professor and Ku Klux Klan member. Norman Councilwoman Breea Clark has posted an online petition asking residents to help change the name of DeBarr Avenue. If at least three-fourths of Norman homeowners agree, the city — home to the University of Oklahoma — would be among several cities nationwide renaming monuments and streets named after prominent KKK members. […] The block-long street honors Edwin DeBarr, one of the university’s first professors and founder of its chemistry department. DeBarr became a...

    A 15-yard penalty apparently wasn't enough punishment for Josh Norman's bow-and-arrow celebration, so the NFL decided to fine the Washington Redskins star cornerback $10,000 on Wednesday. Norman, who was fined last week for his hit on Giants wideout Sterling Shepard, said he will appeal his latest punishment, which was doled out after he celebrated his fourth-quarter interception in Sunday's win over the Browns.

The district attorney viewed audio and video from the bus before charging the students.

    Forty-five years ago this past Friday, Norman Borlaug was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. “More than any other person of (the) age,” the Nobel Committee stated, the Christ follower had “helped to provide bread for a hungry world.” Indeed, Dr. Borlaug, who grew up on an Iowa farm, who earned a Ph.D in plant pathology, was the father of the “green revolution.” His breakthroughs in breeding high-yielding crops averted the mass famines widely predicted during the 1960s. In so doing, he “alter(ed) the course of history,” the New York Times eulogized in 2009. In his Nobel Lecture, Borlaug noted, “Man’s...

Authorities took the suspected shooter, 47-year-old Todd William Hoss into custody at that time. After investigating the shooting, police learned that Hoss may have fired the weapon in self-defense.

    “When you look that closely at someone, you almost always develop sympathy for them,” Rockwell says. “It's like sitting next to someone for a long bus ride. … I want to think about who these people are and why they made the choices they did. I want to share the results of my thoughts, which are my paintings, with other people.” She was particularly inspired to paint bin Laden. “We take for granted who he was and what he did and why, and stop thinking of him as a human being with profoundly human motivations. The war on terror is...
  • Leading the Fight vs. Native America's Painkillers

    Three tribes lead the best practice initiative treating the epidemic of painkiller addiction in Native America, Oklahoma, the nation's leader in painkiller addiction. Treating all adults, Medicaid. Last month the Center for Disease Control called prescription painkiller addiction an epidemic in the country, identifying Oklahoma as leading the nation in both the addiction and related deaths. It is only fitting that the battle against such addiction in "Native America" be led by three tribal owned clinics, Absentee Shawnee Counseling Services, OKC; Keetoowah Cherokee Treatment Services, Tulsa; and Quapaw Counseling Services, Miami. Generally speaking, prescription painkillers are opiates. There are 14...

    How much attention do you pay to the state of the U.S. economy? It has a direct effect on my business. I believe you lead from the top down, and if I ran my business like the guy in the White House runs his business now, whether it's your debt-to-GDP, or your inflows to your outflows, basically — I'd be bankrupt. If I didn't show the confidence to my staff from 2007 to where we are today, making a change to the business model, making adjustments within human resources, moving people out, which you don't like to do, to consolidate...

    There’s news from Oklahoma today of an earthquake which has struck with a magnitude of 4.3. The quake was actually felt across 5 states and was one of the strongest quakes ever in Oklahoma, with only 3 stronger since 1907. The US Geological Survey recorded the quake hit at 09:06 am around six miles away from Norman, Cleveland County. The earthquake was also felt in parts of southern Kansas, Arkansas, Missouri and Texas and it appears that fortunately there have only been 2 people reported to have minor injuries, according to Murray Evans in an Associated Press report over on...

    CLEVELAND - A tape recording of the 1970 shooting deaths of four Kent State University students by Ohio National Guardsmen reveals the sound of pistol shots 70 seconds earlier, a newspaper reported Friday citing the work of a forensic audio expert. The finding lends support to a theory that the guardsmen thought they were being shot at during a campus Vietnam War protest. Witnesses said at the time that an FBI informant monitoring the protest fired warning shots because he felt threatened.

    SOUTHPORT, England — The last time a golfer did what Greg Norman has a chance to do in the British Open, this name was Old Tom and the American Civil War had recently ended. So it is fitting that here in the land where 100-year-old golf courses are regarded as new, Norman is one step from rewriting his own history, and one of golf’s oldest records.

    Fond Memories of a 1984 Meeting in Washington, DC I was saddened to learn of the recent passing of Larry Norman. I could not help but reminisce about several days nearly a quarter century ago when the leader of the modern conservative movement addressed a gathering of Christian media leaders in Washington, DC and an anti-establishment Christian rock activist dropped in. Two events during these few days had an indelible impact on my life. Larry sang Jesus into my life during the early 1970’s when I was not seeking God. I knew of Larry from the band « People »...

Gleason, Jr. was not surprised to see that Gov. Ed Rendell and U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton are involved in more fundraising scandals with another convicted felon, named Peter Paul. Paul alleges that Ed Rendell, then Chairman of the Democrat National Committee, told him to lie about his involvement with a 2000 Clinton for Senate fundraiser. “Apparently, when Sen. Clinton and Gov. Rendell need campaign donations, they dial up the list of America’s most wanted as...
