Raymond Gross: What Obama tax cuts?

Remember Obama steady bragging about not extending all those bad "Bush" tax cuts if he became president which would have increased everyone's income tax in 2011? Remember all the national panic and melancholy about four months ago when he was still saying the same thing?

Justin Sutton: Roe v. Wade

Roe v. Wade: Where's the celebration? As a father, I will never forget the feelings of joy and love I felt when I heard my son's heart beat for the first time. Thirty-eight years ago Saturday, the Supreme Court decided it was legal to stop the beating heart of an unborn child in its decision of Roe v. Wade. The Court's interpretation of the 14th Amendment and its ruling paved the way for expectant mothers to legally obtain an abortion. Many have hailed this case a landmark decision that advanced the power and status of women. If the court's ruling was such a victory, where were the celebrations this weekend?

 

 

Wayne Blankenship: 'The perfect candidate'

Perfect candidate I have been a resident of Columbus all of my life. I have always been concerned about the progress of our town. A short time ago it was announced that the head of the CVB would be leaving for another position in another city. To fill his vacancy Nancy Carpenter was selected to this position only until another person was found. This brings me to my point. Why should we look somewhere else when we have a person like Nancy Carpenter?

Carl A. Lee : Wants to see more African-Americans in leadership positions

In recent days, I have been thinking about our "Friendly City" and considering our progress and collective problems. Moreover, we have lately through the leadership of the Mayor and City Council made significant progress in clearing dilapidated houses throughout the city. However, while removing these eyesores is a positive, we have some significant problems festering.
