A better use of campaign funds - EdwardTeach
Few days pass that my mailbox is not filled with requests for funds for a good cause, especially for food for children. At the same time I almost daily learn of a boasting report of millions being contributed as campaign funds for one candidate or another. Jeb Bush gathered in over 100 million d...

Do away with sanctuary cities - EdwardTeach
When I became aware of sanctuary cities and their purpose, I became angry and denounced their existence. They seem to exist to protect especially illegal aliens who have been deported. Commit murder and get to one of 200 sanctuary cities and live off government largesse. We must make our repr...

re: Daughter leaves for Israel as missionary - EdwardTeach
Jessica owes no student loans. She received enough scholarships and income from jobs to pay her way to LSU. and she had her choice of seminaries with full fellowships plus loans from the Methodist Church that will be forgiven if she serves five years in Louisiana. ...

re: Daughter leaves for Israel as missionary - EdwardTeach
I can understand questions but not rudeness. Jessica is a missionary IN Israel, not a missionary TO Israel. Her reason for going to Israel is that God called her. You may question her beliefs but many people support her. Although the Methodist Church does not pay her, the church approved...

Daughter leaves for Israel as missionary - EdwardTeach
What would be your feelings and thoughts if your daughter was leaving Sunday to spend a year as a missionary in Israel? Probably the way my wife and I feel -- proud and excited, but sad because we will not see her for a year, and apprehensive because Israel is part of the troubled Mideast. Jessi...

Remembering Iwo Jima -- 70th anniversary - EdwardTeach
Yes, I remember Iwo Jima. Around 5 a.m the USS Pickens, APA 190, reached the tiny island of Iwo Jima. I was on deck at a debarkation station from where we launched our boats. I remember the Marines scrambling down cargo nets to enter the boats, and I remember boats returning with wounded Marines. ...

Iwo Jima memories from 69 yers ago - EdwardTeach
When my thoughts turn to Iwo Jima 69 years ago, memories of three events stand out. Of course, one is observing the American flag go up on Mt. Suribachi, go down and be raised again. We had no idea at the time that Joseph Rosenthal's picture of the flag raising would become famous. I will always...
