The foundation of our nation is built on the bedrock principle that no matter where you start out, if you work hard, you can succeed. That’s the American dream.
In response to recent letters wanting to get rid of wolves, I feel a need to defend them. People who don’t like wolves seem to want them to not exist. They don’t want them to hunt elk or deer because it is competition for hunters.
Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, previously a Republican U.S. senator from Nebraska, has been pilloried for more than a week, mostly from the political right including his former GOP colleagues in Congress, for proposing deep cuts in military spending.
