    When it comes to major federal issues such as health care, energy plans and the role the government should have in banking and housing, Republicans Tom McMillin and Mike Bishop have very similar views. Both are well-known conservatives running to replace U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Howell, for the 8th Congressional District seat. Rogers is retiring. Bishop was the Senate Majority Leader under former Gov. Jennifer Granholm. Since leaving office, Bishop has been the chief legal officer for International Bancard Corp. and is an adjunct professor at Thomas M. Cooley Law School. McMillin was elected to his third term in the...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — A federal judge is ruling against the Secret Service, saying records of visitors to the White House are subject to Freedom of Information Act requests. The Secret Service had argued that the visitors' logs were presidential records exempt from public disclosure. But U.S. District Judge Beryl Howell on Wednesday disagreed. Howell sided with government watchdog group Judicial Watch, which had sued for records from the first eight months of the Obama administration. Howell said the Secret Service must disclose the records, except individual entries that fall under exemptions like for national security. In September 2009, President Barack...

    Nearly four years ago, Barry Goode told the Howell School Board that privatizing was a political decision, not a financial decision, and called it “shameful.” Goode is a Howell resident who also serves as president of the Brighton Education Association. This year, Howell Public Schools say that their privatization efforts have saved them about $2.9 million since that board meeting. Without the privatization, Howell Superintendent Ron Wilson said the district would have to make “catastrophic cuts.” “There would be huge cuts in programs,” Wilson said. “The privatization helped us put off or prevent some of these deep cuts in the...

    Daniel Glowacki, a student at a Michigan high school, has found himself at the center of a national controversy. Recently his economics teacher, Jay McDowell, wore a t-shirt printed by a homosexual group. When the teacher demanded another student remove his confederate flag belt buckle, Daniel pointed out it was hypocritical for the teacher to wear a shirt with a message, and not let the student wear his buckle. Then the teacher asked Daniel if he agreed with his shirt. Daniel replied he didn’t because of his faith. The teacher then kicked Daniel out of class while screaming he was...

    Kenneth Howell felt relaxed as he walked across the campus of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, on his way to a Friday afternoon meeting with his department chairman, Robert McKim. He’d turned in his grades for his classes—Introduction to Catholicism and Modern Catholic Thought—a week ago; it was the end of May, and he looked forward to a summer spent on research and writing. It was a rhythm he had become accustomed to in a decade as an adjunct professor in the university religion department, and today promised to be no different, even though the meeting with McKim had...

    CHAMPAIGN – The University of Illinois scholar who lost his job over his exposition of Catholic teachings has walked a winding path that includes a decades-long conversion, leaving other positions, including one as a Presbyterian minister, and facing down an armed man who shot at him five times. Until May, Kenneth Howell taught a course on Catholicism in the Religious Studies Department as an adjunct professor whose salary was paid by the Newman Foundation. The university responded to a complaint that Howell used hate speech in an email to students when he described the Catholic natural law and utilitarian theories...
  • Professor Fired For Offending Friend Of Student (Then Rehired)

    Whatever you do, don’t diss John Stuart Mill or Jeremy Bentham at the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana. You might just “offend” the friend of a student, and will thus be out on your keister. Here’s what happened: according to the Alliance Defense Fund, Kenneth Howell, an adjunct, sent an email to his class explaining the dismal philosophy of utilitarianism. It is crucial to understand that Howell’s class was in the Religious Studies Department, and the course was “RLST 447 Modern Catholic Thought”. The blurb for that course reads: Traces the history of Catholicism in its interaction with the modern...

Attorneys representing the University of Illinois contacted the Alliance Defense Fund (ADF) to inform them that Dr. Kenneth Howell will be permitted to teach courses again Fall Semester.

    URBANA – An adjunct professor who taught courses on Catholicism at the University of Illinois has lost his teaching job there, and he claims it is a violation of his academic freedom. Kenneth Howell was told after the spring semester ended that he would no longer be teaching in the UI's Department of Religion. The decision came after a student complained about a discussion of homosexuality in the class in which Howell taught that the Catholic Church believes homosexual acts are morally wrong. Howell has been an adjunct lecturer in the department for nine years, during which he taught two...

Howell  As I knelt in St. Peter’s Cathedral at daily Mass, my heart struggled to know what God wanted me to do. The past year had opened my eyes to the beauties of the Mass and to the truths of the Catholic faith, but I just could not become a Catholic. How could I give up what I had worked so hard to achieve? Now that I was successful in what I had always wanted to do, wouldn’t it be foolish to walk away from it all?...

Without bothering to check with the office, they went down to the beach and began taking photographs of each other, each time with Deerhurst - including the cupola that rides over the main building - in the background."

    End of Howell's reign is part of a shuffle designed to focus NASA on space exploration NASA's Johnson Space Center Director Jefferson Howell Jr. announced Monday that he will leave the high-level post for a space agency liaison assignment with the University of Texas at Austin. The retired U.S. Marine Corps lieutenant general will remain as director of the 15,000-person installation in Houston's Clear Lake area until NASA Administrator Michael Griffin names a successor, probably by late November. Howell's departure is one of nearly 20 high-level personnel changes throughout the space agency since Griffin became administrator in mid-April. Griffin was...

I encourage everyone Mid Michigan or SE Michigan to come to this event and hear him speak. This is free to all conservatives and republicans. Meet the...

Here is a different perspective. Here is ... the rest of the story. Thomas Watkins, recent state superintendent of public instruction, had it right when he stated in his Dec. 6, 2004, Michigan School Funding report that "calls to raise taxes to fund education without a systematic overhaul will only serve to maintain the status quo. For our children's sake, this is unacceptable." He further said that...

Cohoctah Township resident Bill Johnston, who formed the Concerned Taxpayers Group in hopes of defeating the May 3 proposal, said a variety of factors play into the groundswell against this particular millage.
