A commentary by J. F. Kelly, Jr.
Its massive medical care overhaul plans in tatters, the Obama administration will turn now to what’s left of its ambitious but overreaching domestic agenda. While job creation and job stabilization is what Americans need and want most now, what they are likely to get next is an attempt at a massive overhaul of immigration policy.

Portions of the 300-foot vessel now lie exposed to sun, surf and sightseers. A Coronado city crew examined the wreck yesterday, removing… Continue

The world looks very different from 40 feet up, hanging onto a rope wall. My advice? Don’t look down.
A lot phenomenally fit people, including world-famous athletes and Olympians, have frozen at the top of the wall, which is part of the legendary obstacle course on the Navy SEAL base in Coronado, Calif. Who knew that vertigo routinely kicks in at 40 feet without a safety… Continue

It’s often the case where a truly inspiring human being is asked “who inspires you?” With our 35 under 35 community leaders, we asked the same question. The answers were an array of sorts. From a former basketball player to the county’s district attorney, to a 12-year-old who gave a noteworthy speech to the United Nations, to simply, everyday volunteers who allocate a certain amount of time each week for the greater good.…

Voters were angry with Republicans and swept them out of Congress in 2006. Obama capitalized on that voter anger and successfully campaigned on a promise of change.
We got change alright, but not for… Continue
