Editor, The News:
Do people know:
Ten years of taxation and the stealing of $716 billion from Medicare will fund Obamacare for only six years?
Number of charges, arrest and convictions for financial crimes and bank fraud under different administrations are: Bill Clinton, 1,000; George W. Bush, 1,300; Barack Obama, 0, zero, zilch, nada, none?
Solyndra (one of 12 bankrupt green energy firms that taxpayers lost billions of dollars on) in an email, referred to the Obama administration as “Bank of Washington?”
Non-legal residents and even non-residents use an ITINN number to file U.S. tax returns and file claims for the “child tax credit,” resulting in over $7 billion in fraud and the Obama administration refuses to take corrective action?
The Obama family’s solstice vacation to Hawaii last winter, complete with “his and her flights” and separate motorcades, stuck the taxpayers with a tab of more than $4 million? (Is that where Obama got idea for “We Can’t Wait” slogan?)
There are rumors of fundraisers being conducted to purchase an estimated $35 million mansion (located in the tropical paradise of Hawaii) for the Obama family to move into?
With Obama spending his post-presidential days golfing and being paid millions for speeches from his presidential library in Hawaii, could one think of a better way to further remove and distance oneself from the stark realities of historic deficit spending and historic accumulation of national debt by Obama? When the Obamas do leave the White House in January (the taxpayers fund the trip home) let’s hope they don’t take his and her flights.

Our Opinion: College admission test undergoes real-world changes
In the realm of education, the Scholastic Aptitude Test has something of a make-or-break reputation. That’s because a student’s SAT results — or those of its counterpart, the ACT — are a major factor in the admissions decisions by colleges.
Our Opinion: Discovery of ancient virus raises concerns
In the 1951 science fiction classic “The Thing from Another World,” a spacecraft crashes in the arctic. A group of humans investigates and discovers an alien buried in ice. Once thawed, the alien poses a threat to the humans, who eventually destroy it.
Our Opinion: Some consumers pay price of changing power suppliers
Choice may be good, but an informed choice is even better. That’s the conclusion we draw from reports here in Lawrence County and elsewhere around Pennsylvania about some residents and businesses receiving electric bills that are substantially higher than normal.
Our Opinion: The West has decisions to make, and Russia may pay price
Let’s begin by acknowledging that the United States will not be sending troops to Ukraine. That country — despite an incursion by Russian troops — is not of vital strategic interest to America, and there is no treaty obligation to defend it.
Our Opinion: Giving Laurel teachers free tuition is inherently unfair
Whenever government hands out perks to its own, red flags are raised. And arguments that they cost taxpayers nothing can ring a little hollow.
Our Opinion:Tax reform proposal sounds good, but may lack support
If there’s one thing that Democrats and Republicans in Washington agree on, it’s that America needs a simpler tax code.
Our Opinion: Obama administration targets junk food ads
We anticipate some controversy over the Obama administration’s proposed new rules regarding schools and junk food. Mainly it will come from those who complain about federal meddling in public education.
Our Opinion: After five years, Jordan Brown case continues — sadly for all
It’s not unusual for newspapers to look back on major news events when key anniversaries come about. So it was that the New Castle News has been running articles on the fifth anniversary of the 2009 slaying of Kenzie Houk, and the subsequent arrest of Jordan Brown for the crime.
Our Opinion: Expanding gambling option falls flat on its face
Perhaps it’s good that every now and then, government gains a glimpse of the real world. And so it is with Pennsylvania’s latest effort to squeeze the goose that lays the golden gambling eggs.
Our Opinion: Examination of Sandusky case hurt by email deletions
How long should government keep records before throwing them away? It’s a question that became more than academic in Pennsylvania, in light of the Jerry Sandusky saga.
