At the same time high winds also battered the region and Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson said it could be days before electricity was fully restored. At least six people were injured. “It’s in the top two or three traumatic events that have affected our city,” Watson told reporters. “It looks like something from a movie scene or a war scene.” The tornado hit on Friday evening, demolishing...

  • After Watching Debate New Nickname for "Beto" Sham O'Rourke

    After watching Ted Cruz wipe the floor with "Beto" O'Rouke during the debate, it was striking to me about how huge a fraud this guy "Beto" really is. First, he has the fake nickname to make him sound Latino. After watching him last night it was apparent that he has studied Barack Obama's speech patterns and was doing an imitation of him. He tried to say that he wanted to work with Republicans and the President after all of his extreme left votes in the house are right there for us all to see. He is a sham all the...

As a result, more Ohio State students are giving in to the temptation. A Lantern review of annual reports and statistics compiled by Ohio State’s Committee on Academic Misconduct reveals a large spike in the number of reported cases of cheating over the past four school years.

    CHARLESTON, W.Va. — An increasing number of West Virginians are open to regulation to help protect the environment. The MetroNews Dominion Post West Virginia Poll asked whether this country should do whatever it takes to protect the environment or if the country has gone too far in its efforts to protect the environment.

While there have been other so-called mass bailouts around the country, organizers said they believe this effort at Rikers has the potential to be one of the largest ever.
