    More than 200 headstones were spray-painted with Nazi swastikas overnight on Friday at a cemetery in Illinois, KMOV reports. The vandalism occurred heading into Memorial Day weekend at a Glen Carbon, Ill., cemetery which houses the graves of more than 1,300 veterans, officials said. “We haven't seen anything of this magnitude in the 30 years that I've been here,” said Mark Johnson, the grounds superintendent of Sunset Hill Cemetery. Police are investigating the vandalism, but have not identified a suspect or motive. Etc...
  • Memorial Day: The Imperative Holiday We Cannot Lose

    05/26/2018 12:00:15 PM PDT · by Liberty7732 · 8 replies
    This is not your warm and fuzzy Memorial Day column. We have for too long subsumed Memorial Day into the trivialities of summer’s advent, backyard cookouts, a long weekend, bargain sales and vacations. It’s not universal but it is culturally broad. This is a sad and dangerous devolution to a narcissistic day celebrating little more than the prurient pursuits of a day off, not the ultimate sacrifice of so many who died protecting our lofty ideals. Cookouts and vacays are not why we have Memorial Day. The more we lose our heritage, our founding principles, our moorings anchored to how...

    Memorial Day means more than remembering those who died in military service to the country Memorial Day had its origin as Decoration Day following the Civil War, but it only became an official federal holiday to honor those who lost their lives while serving in the armed forces of the United States in 1971. Memorial Day is also an occasion to associate those who died with the just causes for which the United States was willing to go to war. World War I, World War II, Korea, and Vietnam were conflicts where freedom was clearly at stake. The post 9/11...

    NFL players and BLM will be getting together this weekend to demand social justice. Now that they can no longer take a knee during the National Anthem they will be pursuing new ways to display their grievances against America’s racism and protest police brutality. (I’d suggest they consult George Soros as he seems to know how to accomplish his social justice goals.)  As NFL players consider new ways to protest, the rest of the country will be flying, waving and otherwise displaying the flag the thugs seem so bent on disrespecting. The flag that so many gave their all for.As...

It’s made in Provence – Domaine De LaCroix to be specific – and is everything a Rose should be: light, dry, refreshing…and beautiful.I’m not a wine expert but I drink a lot of roses and can tell you it’s...

    Hurricane forecasters on Monday (May 21) were tracking a weather disturbance they say has a low chance of developing into a tropical depression this week in the Gulf of Mexico. It has the potential to make things wet in New Orleans for Memorial Day weekend. As of 7:30 a.m. Monday, the weather disturbance was in the Caribbean Sea and extended across Cuba and the Florida peninsula. It's expected to move into the central or eastern Gulf of Mexico over the next several days.What does it mean for New Orleans? The National Weather Service office in Slidell said the system could...

    A resurgence of tropical moisture is expected to further increase the downpours that spell good and bad news for the southeastern United States as Memorial Day holiday weekend approaches. There is no end in sight to the unsettled weather pattern that has developed over the Southeast. Showers and thunderstorms will continue to jeopardize sporting events and outdoor plans in most communities on a nearly daily basis through the end of May. As is typical, the afternoon and early evening hours will be the most active times of the day. Another surge of tropical moisture will be the culprit behind residents...

    Remember! On Memorial Day Msgr. Charles Pope • May 29, 2016 • What is honor? The full etymology of the word is debated, but what seems most likely is that it comes from the Latin word honos, which, though translated as “honor,” also points to the word “onus,” which means “weight” or refers to something heavy. Hence, to honor someone is to appreciate the weight, significance, or burden of something he has done. It is to acknowledge that he carried a great burden well, that he withstood a heavy load, that what he did was weighty, significant.For many, Memorial...

    Memorial Day revenue at the domestic box office falls to its lowest level in nearly two decades; overseas, ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales’ makes up ground with a $208.4 million launch. Memorial Day weekend was no picnic this year for Hollywood at the domestic box office. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales may have won the holiday frame with a four-day haul of $77 million from 4,276 theaters, but it is the lowest start for any Pirates movie outside of the first film. It did make up ground overseas, where it found plenty...

    I can only stomach so much, folks. The Sunday edition of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution is the only newspaper I continue to receive each week. I hardly ever read it, not even the front page headlines, because as a radio talk show host the news is usually old news to me. But this time was Memorial Day weekend and I decided to check out the front page stories and the editorial page. The lead front page story was about the special election in the 6th Congressional District. It was the usual information, but it also reminded me of something I had...

Tracey Lingle of Mokena said his father, who was a veteran of World War II, was buried in the cemetery earlier this year. He said the Memorial Day ceremony at...
  • American, POW/MIA flags stolen from veterans park the day before Memorial Day

    Vandals in Johnson City, Tenn., stole American and POW/MIA flags from a veterans’ memorial on Sunday and damaged a flag pole the day before a Memorial Day service there. Those in Johnson City described the vandalism before Monday’s ceremony as “disgusting,” “sickening” and “vile,” the Johnson City Press reports. Brenda Barnette, chairwoman of the memorial’s board, told the Johnson City Press she learned about the vandalism on Sunday afternoon. “It’s a boot in the face of freedom, veterans and our families who sacrifice and serve,” Barnette said.
