    I’ve seen this claim on both the left and the right. It is wrong. Kyle Rittenhouse is no hero. Not at all. He did nothing heroic. Not. One. Thing. At least on that fateful night when he shot three people. One might rightfully grant him kudos for his testimony in court and his subsequent statements after the trial. However, it certainly appears to me that so many are determined to label his actions on the night for which he was tried and acquitted for as heroic. I strongly disagree. Kyle Rittenhouse defended his life. End of story. Whatever else one...

Chase Poust, 7, saved himself and his family Friday night when he, his 4-year-old sister and his dad went out on a boat to fish on St. Johns River.

    Please take a minute and visit your local VFW tomorrow and say hi to the men and women who served your country on foreign lands in time of war. I know a lot of people think that you can only enter a VFW if you are a member, but that isn't true. Just sign in as a guest. There are Auxiliary Members and National Home members that have never served in the military, so don't think that you're not welcome as either a guest or as a non-veteran member. VFW's are closing by the dozens because there isn't enough participation...
