  • In Defense of Freedom

    Mike Sunderland, Thoughts from a Grey-Haired Point of View|Oct 27, 2022

    There are those who are so scornful, or maybe afraid, of the past history of the United States of America. They want to remove the study of American history and our nation's system of government from our schools. Among the reasons given it is claimed that there are more important things to learn. It is asserted that it is more vital our children learn how to live in today's digital world. Some base this argument on their belief that the past is not relevant to the present. Others contend the...

  • Straight Talk From Steve: Vote!

    Steve Erdman, 47th District|Oct 27, 2022

    Abraham Lincoln once said about elections that “It is the people’s business – the election is in their hands. If they turn their backs to the fire, and get scorched in the rear, they’ll find that they have got to ‘sit’ on the ‘blister’.” In many ways that is how I feel about the election this year. There is so much at stake in the general election on November 8 that it is hard for me to fathom why some people would choose not to cast their vote. When we choose not to vote, we...

    A good Name is better to be chosen than great riches; Loving favor rather than silver and gold.” Proverbs 22:1 We have discovered who’s who, when enough is enough, and what to do about it, physically, intellectually, emotionally and now, socially.  Every baby is unique and precious in God’s eyes and sent for a specific purpose in the society into which they are born.

  • Elizabeth T for SBoE!!

    Oct 27, 2022

    In January I had no idea who Elizabeth Tegtmeier was. I was asked by a friend to attend her announcement as a candidate for State Board of Education.  It was a low-key, upbeat venue near North Platte.  Maybe 40 people in attendance.  I listened to Elizabeth talk about her background as a teacher and her degree in Curriculum and Instruction.  I found I agreed with her positions on the various issues in the education system. She discussed attending SBoE meetings and how those meetings are what led her to the decision to run for the position....

  • Defining Nebraska Public Education

    Oct 27, 2022

    Nebraska Public Education is more than you can see from the street or hear on national news or social media. Why? Nebraska is a local control state. What does that mean? It means your local school board makes the decisions as to what schools look like and teach. This includes approving curriculum, textbooks and size of classes just to name a few. That puts you the local voter in charge through your local school board members who are your friends and neighbors. In many states public education systems, you hear or read about on the news or social...

    Oct 27, 2022

Consider these four key purposes: • Unexpected expenses and emergencies – If you face an interruption in employment, you need an extensive home repair or you encounter an unplanned medical...

  • God Is Enough

    Oct 27, 2022

    A man asked his pastor, “How do I make God’s voice louder…?” His pastor said, “God’s voice is as loud as it’s gonna get. Other things in your life have to get quieter so you can hear God better.” Pastor King Duncan said, “So, is that what we’re missing? Have other voices become so loud in our lives that they have drowned out God’s voice? We equate faith with healings and miracles and flashy evangelistic crusades where people shout and faint and speak in tongues. We want a loud, miraculous display of power to prove our...
