U.S. in dire straits
Our country is in dire straits with President Obama and his agenda to transform the United States into a socialist nanny state which is being promoted by the liberal media. The left wing bias that dominates Big Media with their lies and distortions must be exposed. We are a nation adrift having lost our anchor to the word of God.
There is no doubt about it, the next two years are going to be the most critical years since this country’s founding. God has prospered this nation as few others but we have lost our way. We are a nation adrift. We have forgotten our past and the America of history appears at times to be teetering on the brink of collapse.
But we are not without hope. We must get back to our roots and restore our Christian foundation. without Christianity, there would be no America as we know it today.
Former resident applauds mayors
Recently, I read the March 30 Daily Iowegian story “Area mayors combat sexual assault.” I want to applaud the mayors of these local towns for signing proclamations to battle sexual assault, especially those in Centerville, Moravia and Rathbun.
I moved to Centerville the summer before my seventh-grade year. As a teenager, it really didn’t matter to me what kind of world I lived in as long as people liked me, I got a job I enjoyed and I fit in somehow.
However, as a 24-year-old woman working at a newspaper in Creston, I’ve had the opportunity to read newspaper articles about the many public sexual assault trials across the globe, and what I’ve learned these few years since graduating high school has made me what to be a person of change. Knowing there are people who still consider another person inferior just because of gender makes me angry. When a man can say he is better than a woman just because he is physically stronger, or stereotypically “better” in other ways, something needs to change.
