Jay Ambrose: Bush’s environmental record

When it came to the environment, George W. Bush as president was not just a flop, but a maelstrom of menace, and the worst of it was his motivation - an intent to please evangelical nutcases who thought the apocalypse was coming soon anyway, and the sooner the better.

John Boston: The origins of good legislation

"The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature."

David Hegg: Manning, Wilson: brothers of Christ

Today millions around the world will gather with jersey-clad friends and family to eat and cheer their way through the Super Bowl. This championship of professional football in America has been the darling of the sports media for several weeks now, and finally the hoopla will give way to actual athletic competition.

Frank Ferry: There’s nothing cool about graffiti

As a principal, father, and member of the City Council, I can tell you firsthand that environment and behavior go hand in hand. If we want the best students, we must provide an environment that supports learning, connectivity with quality educators and opportunities to study.

Scott Wilk: ‘State of the State’ report

Last week Governor Jerry Brown tied Earl Warren for the number of State of the State addresses any governor has given. While that is a personal milestone that he can be proud of, the content of his vision for California is infinitely more important.

Jonathan Kraut: Beyond the Olympics and terrorism

The Sochi Winter Olympic Games, commencing February 7, are but a few days away. In 1896 the First Modern Olympics resurrected the ancient Greek tradition of bringing together the most talented athletes. Since then the Modern Olympics have managed to survive world conflicts and have endured WWI, WWII, the Cold War, and hopefully the War on Terror.

Rick Jensen: Conservative ideas are gaining more support

Why do people like Rev. Jeremiah Wright travel across America to exhort audiences to denigrate tea party Americans as racist?

Andrew G. Fried: Concerning crosses and county seals

The First Amendment of our nation's Constitution establishes five rights that the founding fathers considered so important, they listed them first in the Bill of Rights.

David Hegg: Today’s choices determine tomorrow’s opportunities

While the proverbial advice to "take each day as it comes" has some validity, it also masks the dangerous assumption that the choices we make today won't have consequential carry-over tomorrow. In fact, while it is both harmful and a waste of time to worry about the unknowns of the future, it is always wise to consider what effect my decisions today will have on the options available to me later.

Betty Arenson:Affordable Care Act in practice

Ask yourself the honest question: Did you truly believe The Patient Protection Affordable Care Act, or ACA, was going to work as promised? If the answer is "yes," then did you earnestly think through the practical workings of the program?

Gary Horton: The Buck now stops

Energizer Bunnies keep going and going and going – and for a time, it looked like Buck McKeon would be equally perpetual in motion to those furry little drumbeaters. The man is after all, 75, and still beating war drums while running circles around most of us. Yet now it seems that both Buck the man, and his underlying message of perpetual militarism may be running down, with time well deserved for some R and R away from the military industrial complex.

Byron York: Jobs should stay in focus

There was a lot to talk about when House Speaker John Boehner appeared before reporters recently for the first time since the holiday break. There are continuing fights over Obamacare. Immigration reform. Appropriations bills. The debt ceiling. The Democratic push for the president's "inequality agenda."

Danny Tyree: Winter Olympics: untold story

Hundreds of millions of people will be following the 2014 Winter Olympics, even though the underwhelming motto ("Hot. Cool. Yours.") sounds less like a paean to athletic excellence than the sort of progression that accompanies a court-ordered paternity suit.

David Hegg: Environment will shape your thinking

It is rare when we think deeply anymore. In too many ways, and in too many instances, we are becoming a people who let others do our thinking for us.
