    DETROIT, MI - Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson's account of being offered a full scholarship at West Point was called into question this week after the military academy said he never applied to the school. Carson admitted Friday that he never applied to West Point. Rather, the neurosurgeon from Detroit said he was informally offered a scholarship by a top U.S. Army general, but decided not to pursue it. However, The Detroit News reports that the encounter Carson was referring to, and that is described in his best-selling 1990 autobiography "Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story," does not match historical...

    Republicans authored a historic shift in Westmoreland County government on Tuesday. Charles Anderson and Tyler Courtney secured a majority on the board of commissioners for the first time since 1956. It also appears that Republicans swept all five row offices, defeating four longtime incumbents, according to unofficial election results. Two-term incumbent Controller Carmen Pedicone, potentially the last Democrat standing, lost by 262 votes to write-in candidate Jeff Balzer. "We worked so hard for this. It's just going to be a great victory. I am so happy, you don't even know," said Chairwoman Elaine Gowaty of the county Republican Committee. "I...

    A prominent Republican congressman raised the specter Friday of a government shutdown if the GOP wins control of the House. Speaking to hundreds of activists gathered at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington for the Faith and Freedom Conference, Rep. Lynn Westmoreland (R-Ga.) urged the audience to stand with House Republicans when they go toe-to-toe with President Barack Obama. Westmoreland said his caucus — presuming it takes control of the House come November — aims to pass spending bills that Obama is likely to veto. He predicted Republicans would not be able to override such a veto, creating a standoff that...

    WASHINGTON - This is a tale of two men who were -- each in his own way -- icons of America's searing and bitter experience in Vietnam. Both left us this month, one at age 81 the other at age 91, and they left us wondering what it all meant and what they meant to us. One was a symbol of a nation's failure to succeed in its costly and bloody mission in Vietnam. The other was a symbol of gritty personal courage and simple personal honor while a seemingly helpless prisoner of America's enemies in that war. Gen. William...

He considered trying for Sam Nunn’s Senate seat in ’96, but the party brass told him the time was not ripe. Westmoreland waited. A Democrat, Max Cleland, won the election. Looking back, state Rep. Westmoreland might have prevailed. But who knows? Instead, he stayed in the Georgia House, labored in the vineyards of GOP politics and ousted Bob Irvin as Republican leader in 2000. Now Westmoreland is...
