The cover of Time magazine last week offered a doctored photo showing President Trump standing over a crying baby with a tag line - Welcome to America. It has inspired outrage by the Trump Derangement Syndrome crowd. Problem is it is factually flawed. In other words it is fake news. News...
There is a video making the rounds on Facebook about how the Army and white settlers once killed as many buffalo as they could in order to punish native Americans who depended on the bison for food and clothing. There is undoubtedly some degree of truth in the story but it is entirely irrelevant to...
Local Orchardists are concerned about the impact of China’s new tariffs on Apples and Cherries. Washington state is probably going to be hit the hardest. The question is just how big of a problem is this? First, only 2 percent of US apple exports go to China. Most of our exports go to Canada and...
President Trump disappointed most of the people that voted for him last week when he failed to veto the Omnibus Spending Bill brought to him courtesy of our spendthrift Congress. It seems the Republicans are bent on self-destruction to the delight of the Democrats who are willing to bankrupt the...
That famous line from the Wizard of Oz rushed into my consciousness when I considered the responses of our local legislators to the firestorm they created by voting for the bill to exclude them from the public records act. Their responses fell into two general categories. First, it is too...
  Getting ready for a new year causes all of us to take stock and look at what we need to change. The same is true for our business. Carol and I will be starting our 18th year as owners of NCW Media in 2018.  We have been through a lot of changes during that time but the most significant change is...

  Judge Ray Moore is guilty. He’s never had a trial. Hasn’t had a chance to make his case to a jury of his peers, but he’s guilty. He’s been accused by a number of women of the crime of being a sexual predator. He’s a man so he’s guilty.  Women would never bring such a charge if it just weren’t...
  The Republicans revealed the details of their tax plan last week. President Trump called it a Christmas present to the American people. Democrats and most journalists called it a gift to the rich. I am disappointed to say that in my 30 plus years in the news business I have found it extremely...
  Sometimes it’s just gets too twisted to actually think this is really happening.  Let’s see if I can make any sense of last week’s news from the big swamp. It seems the Dems and their friends in the corporate media have been conspiring to blame Trump for colluding with the Russians to keep...
