OIL SPILL: Obama wrong to push for drilling moratorium

The Gulf oil spill is a horrible tragedy. It may take years to even begin to figure out the total damage to the Gulf's eco-system, not to mention the financial toll residents throughout the Gulf are having to endure because of the spill.

As is standard practice, when something catastrophic happens, we turn to the U.S. government for help and guidance. First, we must always remember that the federal government is not always an "all-powerful" entity that can wave a wand and fix a problem. Second, those fixes aren't always the right ones.


THE ANTI-LEBRON: QB shows true class

The LeBron James debacle has been beaten to death in news outlets across the country — if not the globe. Pampered superstar embarrasses himself and his sport with a juvenile attention grab. First, the hour-long television special to announce where he intends to play the next few seasons, then a big "look-at-me" party in his chosen Miami.

Who really cares. We really should be getting used to these antics from today's athletes.

Then an old story pops across the email, talking about another superstar, this one years past his glory days.


SH 11: Great look, real concern

User Rating: / 6

Now that the new State Highway 11 extension is open, there are two quick observations: 1) It will be a great benefit to Sulphur Springs and will open traffic in the south part of the city tremendously; and 2) someone is going to get seriously injured at the intersection of the new extension and Arbala Road.


DECISION TIME: Obama must change Afghanistan course

It's no big surprise that President Barack Obama ousted Gen. Stanley McChrystal last Wednesday after McChrystal's poor judgement and loose lips. But the key for President Obama is what he does next.

And his options are not very appealing.


USA SOCCER: The buzz is growing

Has it happened yet? Have you been bitten by the bug? Have you become, for lack of a better word, a soccer freak?

If you haven't, you are missing out on a very special moment. If you have (or if you were one all along), well ..... ain't it fun!

One thing we have discovered during the 2010 World Cup being held in South Africa: Soccer is alive and well in the good 'ole U.S.A. No, soccer hasn't reached the heights of America's major sports. And it probably never will. It won't replace football. It won't take the place of basketball or baseball. NASCAR will most likely always be more popular and so will golf, if only because it is a sport that we all can play.

But soccer is making headway. Lots of headway.
