Oregon State Fire Marshal Randy Simpson urges residents to check their smoke alarms when changing their clock to Daylight Savings Time Sunday, March 8th. Many Oregonians have smoke alarms with ten-year batteries so the old saying, ‘Change your clock, change your batteries' may not be correct for many households.

"You can't just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done," the newly installed President Obama told Capitol Hill Republicans. Chief of staff Rahm Emanuel, just days ago, called the popular conservative radio talk show host "the voice and the intellectual force and energy behind the Republican Party." Then Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele appeared on a CNN show hosted by comedian-turned-pundit D.L. Hughley. When Hughley called Limbaugh "the de facto leader of the ...

Twenty-five years after 1984, Doublespeak lives. Last week, President Obama released "A New Era of Responsibility: Renewing America's Promise" — a 10-year, $3.55 trillion spending plan that represented anything but fiscal maturity.

Oh yes, and after years of Democrats trashing President George W. Bush ... [full story]

Cable television offers dozens of news-analysis channels. The last-minute financial rescue of Sirius XM satellite radio leaves at least 20 talk shows on the air. Beyond that, countless blogs written by individuals bombard the Internet. Never before has such a sweeping selection of political commentary been available to the public. Nevertheless, the bad penny of the airwaves — the discredited Fairness Doctrine - has again turned up. An odious invention of the Federal Communications Commission ... [full story]

President Barack Obama's proposed cap-and-trade system on greenhouse gas emissions is a giant economic dagger aimed at the nation's heartland — particularly Michigan. It is a multibillion-dollar tax hike on everything that Michigan does, including making things, driving cars and burning coal. The president is asking for a system of government limits on carbon emissions. The right to emit carbon would be auctioned off to generate revenue for more government spending programs. The president's budget ... [full story]

Q: I recently read a newspaper story that said two of the six children the single mom in California already had before she gave birth to the octuplets are getting Social Security disability benefits. Are our elected leaders out to lunch? No wonder the system is going broke if our Social Security tax dollars are supporting children whose only disability seems to be that they have a mother who has a history of making bad ...

Osteoporosis is not a normal part of aging and, in many cases, is entirely preventable. If you're determined to protect the health of your bones, you may be taking a calcium supplement. That's definitely a step in the right direction, but recent research suggests that optimum bone health depends on a number of factors in addition to boosting calcium intake.
