What a difference

To the editor,
Baltimore Riots: Killings, shootings, burnings, immense property damage, over 200 injured law officers, millions of dollars of damages, a city 
torn asunder by insane haters and rioters. Inspired by the hate and race baiting of Obama, Al Sharpton, Eric Holder, the mayor and DA. 
Church Massacre in Charleston, S.C.: Family members and friends of the nine murdered. "We forgive and pray for you."
Inspired by the love of Jesus Christ. What a difference!

Stay safe on Facebook
By Peter Newell

Scammers and malware writers are always looking for new ways to attack you. Naturally they are going to target the most popular platforms and applications.
This is one reason why Windows computers are much more likely to be infected than Apple computers. Apple's OS-X may be more secure than Windows, but many more users have Windows.
The simple fact is that since Windows is the operating system used on 95 percent of personal computers, most malware targets Windows. You can probably get by without ...

New York Bowhunters Inc. stick it to hunters again

Several weeks ago I had mentioned how -- with the exception of what they do for members of the armed forces, wounded vets and kids -- I don’t often agree with New York Bowhunters Inc., especially when the issue involves crossbows.

Bass fishing begins in earnest Saturday
By Dick Nelson

Bass fishermen can start sharpening their hooks now that the season for largemouth and smallmouth bass is about to open. It opens June 20 and, for the first time in seven months, anglers won’t have to release what they catch, or at least up until they catch the five fish limit.
I don’t know if the third Saturday in June was chosen as the opening of the black bass fishing season because the weekend coincides with the official start of summer or because spawning largemouth and smallmou ...
