5/9/2019 3:38:58 PM

By Penny Arthur   I am an immigrant, a small business owner, a Millennial, a Christian, a Black woman, a mother. And I am a Trump supporter. I am thrilled that you are the Commander in Chief, and I appreciate the positive changes you have already made whether or not you get the credit or not. After decades of politicians making promises and breaking them, you have addressed problems that have long been ignored. Now that the Mueller investigation is over, and they have found no evidence that you colluded with the Russians, the media’s lies have been exposed. The eyes...

5/9/2019 3:37:25 PM

By Marian Wright Edelman   No child should have to worry where her next meal will come from or whether she will have a place to sleep each night in the wealthiest nation on earth. Yet more than 12.8 million poor children in America face these harsh realities every day. It is a moral disgrace, a costly injustice and a profound economic threat that nearly 1 in 5 children are poor in our boastfully wealthy nation. Nearly 4 in 10 of our children spend at least a year in poverty before their 18th birthday and more than 1 in 10 struggle through at least half their childhoods in...

5/9/2019 3:32:36 PM

By Mike Stobbe   NEW YORK (AP)—Cocaine deaths have been rising in the U.S., health officials said Thursday in their latest report on the nation's deadliest drug overdose epidemic. After several years of decline, overdose deaths involving cocaine began rising around 2012. And they jumped by more than a third between 2016 and 2017. The increase at least partly reflects trends in deaths from heroin, fentanyl and other opioid drugs. Many overdose deaths involve several different drugs. The CDC researchers found that nearly three-quarters of the deaths involving...
