A SECOND OPINION, The Toronto Star   It’s a big world and U.S. President Donald Trump has been particularly attentive to global affairs of late. There was his love-fest with the Russian president in Helsinki. And then he launched an all-caps Twitter attack on Iran. And, most recently, he...

A SECOND OPINION, The Kansas City Star   Like any other Kansan, state Senate President Susan Wagle has every right to endorse a candidate in the gubernatorial race. But she does not have the right to ballyhoo her endorsement of Kris Kobach from her official state email account, under her...

A SECOND OPINION, The Houston Chronicle   Women in America are having so few babies that the birth rate has hit an historic low, and that does not bode well for the nation’s future. Fewer babies now means fewer adults later to work, pay taxes, and make sure the country’s future remains...

MY PERSPECTIVE, Gary Damron   We spent three days last week in sessions at Friends University. It was great to re-connect with people we’ve known more than thirty years since leaving a previous denomination. One entire afternoon was spent discussing a doctrinal issue.  Leading up to...

A SECOND OPINION, The Lawrence Journal-World   As a new decade approaches, Kansas lawmakers should consider legislation that would take the politics out of redistricting. The state of Iowa, which has had a nonpartisan redistricting committee in place since 1980, could serve as a...

A SECOND OPINION, The Topeka Capital-Journal   The Republican primary for the 2nd District U.S. House seat is crowded, with seven candidates jostling for attention over a long, hot summer. Chances are you’ll hear a lot more about Topekan Steve Watkins in these final days of the campaign, as...
