“I love the LORD, because he has heard my voice and my supplications. Because he has inclined his ear to me, therefore will I call on him as long as I live.” (Psalms 116:1-2 AKJV) It’s true. God has been so good to me. God answers prayer. “What shall I render to the LORD for all his ...

Dear Annie: Son and family don’t bring anything to dinner

Dear Annie: My wife and I are both retired seniors. We sold our house and moved to the town where our son, daughter-in-law and grandson live. My wife loves to take the little guy swimming and do many other activities with him. Every Sunday, we have a family dinner at our home. They come with ...

Guaranteeing the right to life for all children of Pennsylvania

As a freshman state lawmaker, wife and mother blessed with three amazing sons, I unapologetically believe all future Pennsylvania children deserve the right to be born. That’s why I am proud to be among the original co-sponsors of Rep. Kate Klunk’s (R-York) pro-life legislation which ...

The rodeo in D.C.

Appearing before my eyes, while watching the evening news, was a large neon sign that read, “D.C. Wreaking Ball Rodeo” today. The sign also featured in flashing lights, a bull named “Intellectual Justification,” known for its erratic behavior! Then in the rodeo arena I saw clowns, ...

“Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as you have: for he has said, I will never leave you, nor forsake you.” (Hebrews 13:5 AKJV) When we have the Lord, we have all that we need. He will meet our needs.

Dear Annie: Could gift be a subtle hint?

Dear Annie: I read your response to “Loving Mother,” whose children bought her gift cards to clothing stores rather than generic, credit card-type gift cards. Though I agree that honesty is the best policy, perhaps her children were actually trying to give her a subtle hint that she needs ...

Immigration: Crisis or not, it is a problem

So, what is the reality of immigration into the United States? Is it the "humanitarian crisis at the border" some speak about, or is it, as others maintain, nothing much to worry about? Both statements are correct — to a point. Border apprehensions had been declining for years. But it used ...

Dear Annie: Spring is in the air

Dear Readers: Spring is a beautiful season full of new beginnings. The hibernating animals come out of their slumber to play. Daylight hours are longer, so there is more time to enjoy the warm sunshine. That can be used as more time to hike and play outside. Beautiful baby animals are born, and ...

If you’re running for president, you should be talking to journalists

Earlier this month, my husband, Sen. Sherrod Brown, went on a listening tour of four early-primary states as he considered running for president. I traveled with him to Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina, as did a caravan of political reporters waiting to see if he would announce ...

How to protect your children from Google predators

The father of the World Wide Web is right: It’s time to take back “complete control of your data.” Tim Berners-Lee, who conceived the first internet browser 30 years ago this week, warned of its increasing threats to “privacy, security and fundamental rights.” To mark the ...

“Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection to the Father of spirits, and live?” (Hebrews 12:9 AKJV) God disciplines us because He loves us.

Dear Annie: Volunteers need help

Dear Annie: I am an officer in an old but still active community cemetery with graves dating back to at least the 1800s and with plenty of available space. We have the usual slate of officers and board of directors. We advertise our public meetings, as directed in our bylaws, but they are ...

Something’s wrong when a diploma is worth more than the education

The college admissions scandal should be the populist issue of our time. Most of the talk in our politics about how “the system is rigged” is incredibly abstract and symbolic. But this is infuriatingly concrete. Last week, the Justice Department revealed a massive effort by wealthy ...

Letters to our boys

(Editor’s Note: This is another installment of The Express’ “Letter to Our Boys,” written during World War II to let “our boys” know what was happening back in their home towns. The Express will bring the letters to you occasionally, thanks to the efforts of Fred and Anna Snyder, ...

“Why seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which does so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking to Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was ...
