Birthdays kind of lose their appeal after a while, at least that with that getting older part. If I could keep the favorite foods and cake without the aging it would be incredible.

One good thing about the internet, and social media, is the ability to stay in touch with home, and I was reminded of that Thursday night when I was able to watch the memorial vigil for Cpl. Ronil Singh through the newspaper’s Facebook live post. I called my mom the next morning to let her k…

Christmas has arrived, bringing with it the renewal of long-standing traditions....some spanning generations and others which emerge as the families of our children carve out their own holiday routines.

The Articles of Impeachment, as of Tuesday heading to the House Rules Committee on their way to a vote on the floor of the House of Representatives, is not going anywhere in the Senate. How do I know... not because I trust the Republican Senate caucus to stand strong in times of adversity. I…

It’s fascinating to me, the utter disconnection among Democrats who continually make hay over the upsetting of norms and the constant threat to our democracy that President Trump’s administration brings. But over the last week I have read or watched Congressmen and women and multiple preside…

You know the old expression, “A rumor can fly around the world before the truth can put its shoes on.” The adage is as true today as it ever was....if not more so.

I have been one of the few people who have watched almost all of the impeachment hearings in Congress over the last week. I will admit to not reading all of the testimony. There are only so many times I can see the words “interagency consensus” before I lose my mind and my blood pressure rea…

Shampeachment gets going for real this week, with the continued release of testimony and announcement of witnesses for public testimony by Congressman Adam Schiff. Most curiously, the whistle blower didn’t make the list. It’s most obviously an oversight for Democrats, who have repeatedly cla…

Mass mailer week has arrived....and we are pleased to deliver to our readers the latest version of the expanded issue which is produced twice each year by the Mattos Newspapers staff.

Impeachment fever has overcome Washington, D.C. this week, with a partisan pro forma vote on the parameters of Congressman Adam Schiff’s inquiry and his Tuesday release of 500 pages of transcripts from Intelligence Committee interviews.

When you hear the term “rivalry week,” especially in football, that automatically means for the player to strap the pads on tight and make sure that helmet is well-secured because this is about to be an intense 48 minutes battling for the honor of your town and that special item both teams f…

Just be nice this week...that simple request from my mom, and on her birthday no less, can mean only one thing for me. And that means no writing about politics this week, even though there are quite a few who deserve a roasting.

Monday morning brought a phone call from my sister... asking for a favor. Of course the answer was... of course, even before I found out what she needed. Thankfully it was nothing that involves going to confession, she just needed to send some shoes she ordered to my house and she wanted me …

The announcement late Sunday night by President Trump on Twitter regarding removing military forces from Syria was met with a collective freak-out on the left and right, producing enough energy to power the United States for the rest of the year. The noise came from all corners of The Swamp,…

During my extended visit to California, I was blissfully unaware of what was happening in Washington, D.C. most days, preferring to check in on social media for a recap of all the highlights and lowlights happening in The Swamp.

To make the annual Sept. 11 candlelight walk/program a worthwhile event and ceremony for a community a lot of work is involved, but when that event leaves a memory and creates a tradition in the hearts of many the work becomes a selfless act of giving and caring.

Popped my head back into the political world when a friend on social media sent me a link to a two-minute soundbite from a press conference held Monday by Acting Commissioner of Customs and Border Patrol Mark Morgan.

One side benefit of my extended California stay was my mom talking me into venturing out Friday night for the Fall Festival Evening Under the Stars. It was a nice night, and once the sun went down, the weather was perfect.

The current era of cancel culture has found another target, one who is already familiar with outrage, comedian Dave Chapelle. His new special on Netflix has apparently ruffled more than a few feathers of some sensitive folks.
