    Chris McDaniel, Courier Publisher|Dec 29, 2021

    In modern society, the institution of marriage has been and continues to be, under attack. What was once a sacred and holy joining of man and wife has become something people dabble in and abandon when the going gets tough. Perhaps vows should be changed from "For better or worse, until death do us part" to "until things get hard or I don't like your face anymore." Such a holy union has become a cheapened commodity, almost like purchasing a car. Don't like the way the transmission is acting up?... Full story

  • OP-ED: States Empowered to Stop Reckless Deficits


    In August of 2020, we wrote an opinion opposing Modern Monetary Theory (or MMT, the “too good to be true” idea that the federal government can spend unlimited amounts of money, regardless of revenue, in order to benefit the country and the economy). We disagreed with MMT on the strongest terms. Since that time, the federal government has added $8.4 trillion dollars to our national debt, which now stands at $29.2 trillion. We appealed to the common sense that the government cannot fix everything, own everything, or control everything. We war... Full story

  • 2022: Technology Trends To Watch

    Richard Noble, Special to The Courier|Dec 29, 2021

    This year was a good one for technology. We saw advances in both accessibility and performance driven by the changing shape of our post-pandemic world. The most obvious and journalistically observed of these advances encompasses tech which focussed on making the transition to working from home, either permanently or semi-permanently, more enjoyable and productive. But we also saw things like Apple’s new in-house silicon evolving, new devices from Amazon, Meta and Google for staying connected with loved ones and Samsung’s Galaxy-Z Flip folding-s...
