    Sen. John McCain visited Liberty Township for a Thursday fundraiser, but a fellow Republican will not be in attendance. Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones took out a half-page newspaper ad blasting the presidential candidate’s stance on illegal immigration, and similar ads are planned for other Ohio and New York newspapers. “Before I'm a Republican, I'm an American, and this is an American issue, and I can say what I think,” Jones said.

    COLUMBUS, OH — Republicans can usually expect a friendly reception in Butler County, but the mood of at least one Republican there is less than friendly toward John McCain. Sheriff Richard K. Jones doesn’t think much of McCain’s views on illegal immigrants and wants to make sure the presumptive Republican nominee for president knows it. So when McCain makes a stop for a fundraiser in the county today, Aug. 7, he’ll encounter something you don’t usually see in a presidential campaign: an attack ad from a fellow Republican. Jones, who’s become known nationally for cracking down on illegal immigration in...

    Excerpt - Israel Radio reported Tuesday that U.S. Ambassador to Israel Richard Jones has apologized for remarks on convicted spy Jonathan Pollard, and said that they did not reflect his personal views, nor those of the Bush administration. Jones called the comments "misinformed and misleading." Jones told a university conference earlier in the day that the United States had been lenient with Pollard as it did not execute him for spying for Israel. Pollard, a civilian intelligence analyst for the U.S. Navy, was convicted of selling military secrets to Israel while working at the Pentagon. He was arrested in 1985...

    New US Ambassador Dreams of Regional Peace 10:10 Sep 22, '05 / 18 Elul 5765 ( Already hard at work, newly appointed US Ambassador to Israel Richard Jones told reporters he dreams of “regional peace” between Israel and her neighbors. Jones presented his credentials earlier this week after assuming the post from Ambassador Dan Kurtzer, who wrapped up four years in Israel, opting to retire from the diplomatic service following an extensive career.

    Hours after US Ambassador to Israel Daniel Kurtzer left Israel and his job, incoming US Ambassador Richard Jones touched down in Israel Sunday afternoon and headed straight to the Foreign Ministry and immediately presented a copy of his credentials. Though the fast turnaround was prompted largely by the need to coordinate the logistics of his arrival with Israel, Jones is known as a quick thinker and problem solver. Both skills will come in handy as he arrives in the country at a politically sensitive time, just weeks after Israel completed its historic withdrawal from the Gaza Strip and four West...
