GSU: Respect for Warhawks

in

GRAMBLING — Doug Willliams isn’t putting much stock in the loss suffered by the next opponent on the Grambling State University schedule.
The University of Louisiana-Monroe, which will play host to the Tigers at 6 p.m. on Saturday, suffered a 34-0 defeat against Florida State University in Tallahassee last weekend.
“That’s against an FSU team that is being picked by many to contend for a BCS championship or, at the least, be among the Top Five ranked teams in the nation,” said Tigers’ Head Coach Williams. “So you have to take that into account when you see who we’re playing on Saturday.

Grandparents Day to be observed

Nearly 40 years ago a West Virginia housewife began a campaign to set aside a day for grandparents.
Then in 1978 the U.S. Congress passed legislation that proclaimed the first Sunday after Labor Day as National Grandparents Day.
Although, there are still a few days until National Grandparents Day is actually here, we should take this time to think of all the wonderful things grandparents have done through the years.

Gallagher, Maggie.jpg

The goal of the APP Palmetto Freedom Forum on Monday in Columbia, S.C., was a different kind of debate that would break new ground. Boy, did it succeed.
Sen. Jim DeMint of South Carolina, Congressman Steve King of Iowa and the founder of the American Principles Project, Princeton professor Robert George, asked the questions. (Full disclosure: Professor George is also the founding chairman of the National Organization for Marriage, which I co-founded). Five major GOP candidates stood nakedly on the stage, taking deep questions about constitutional principles — without a podium or a reporter in sight — for 20 minutes.

Growing up a child of 9/11

Ahmed, Saraf.jpg

“One nation . . . indivisible.”
It is impossible to believe that this September marks a decade since the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Colloquially recognized as 9/11, every Sept. 11 commemorates a day of solemnity on behalf of the perished and their grieving families and friends. It is also a day of pride for who we are as Americans.
