Everything you need to know about the nightmare of government-controlled businesses can be found in a damning new inspector general's report on Dealergate. The independent review of how and why the Obama administration forced Chrysler and General Motors to oversee mass closures of car dealerships across the country reveals grisly incompetence, fatal bureaucratic hubris and Big Labor cronyism. No wonder you won't hear much about the report's in-depth details in the so-called mainstream media.

If your summer vacation involves any type of travel, you may find yourself suffering from motion sickness. An estimated 90 percent of Americans will experience the condition at least once in their lives.
Motion sickness occurs when the brain receives conflicting information regarding movement from the eyes, the body and the inner ear. Motion sensors in your joints and tendons help your brain keep track of your body's movement, while a sensitive network of fluid-filled sacs and canals in your inner ear make it possible for you to maintain your balance.

Three local residents, Andy Heusser, Steven Leonard, and Peter Murray, went to Switzerland to carry their Grandmother’s and Great Grandmother’s ashes to a peaceful resting place earlier this month. What was expected to be an uneventful journey turned life threatening for Andy Heusser. While abroad Andy developed ARDS (Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome) which left him in an intensive care unit in Pontadara, Italy. Unable to breathe on his own and in a coma, he is fighting several severe infections. Andy, an avid basketball player in his spare time, is a strong twenty-five year old with a great lefty jumper who knows how to mix it up inside the paint too. At 6'5" he is a formidable opponent on the court and a soft spoken, respectful man off the court. We all want to see Andy play basketball again, and with prayers and monetary help it will happen.
