LAUREL — To Johnson Financial Group employees, who took time away from their jobs Tuesday to volunteer at several nonprofit and charity agencies in Kenosha County and across Wisconsin and Arizona. In all, Johnson Financial Group associates volunteered at nearly 60 charities and organizations.
In recent weeks, the Trump administration raised an alarm about Iran mounting missiles on boats in the Persian Gulf and potentially putting U.S. ships in danger. Citing intelligence about an increased threat from Iran, it sent B-52 bombers, an aircraft carrier and several warships to the gul…

Who is this guy? Democrats want to know this week. Are there more like him in the Republican Party? Could he help us win back Michigan?
Gerrymandering — them’s fightin’ words. This should be an illegal practice of reconfiguring precinct boundaries for the benefit of one party over the other. (Most generally used by Republicans according the my research). The purpose is to disenfranchise voters unlucky enough to reside in the…
Amid reports of outbreaks across the United States of measles — a disease declared eradicated here by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in 2000 — comes some good news in Kenosha.
We have a president who has an army of followers who believe that his every word is “the gospel truth.” Some of his followers even believe he was sent by God to heal our nation.
If there’s one thing Democrats and ayatollahs agree on these days, it’s that John Bolton is trying to start a war with Iran. President Donald Trump has said that he is open to negotiations and does not want a war, but his mustachioed national security adviser will not abide.
I’d like to thank Mark Stalker for offering himself as a sacrifice to provide more evidence of how badly Wisconsin’s legislative districts are gerrymandered; unintended consequences and all that rot.

Three months ago, President Donald Trump declared his love for legal immigration and said he wanted people coming to the U.S. “in the largest numbers ever.” Last week the administration revealed exactly what he meant by that — and it is disappointing, to say the least.
It is becoming highly likely that Donald Trump will be impeached. But it is just as likely he will not be removed from office.
Social conservatives cheering the rash of state laws limiting legal abortion might want to be careful what they wish for.
In a career in public service that spanned five decades, Alice Rivlin was known above all for her obsession with fiscal responsibility. When she died this week, the lead sentence in one obituary called her “a relentless fighter for deficit reduction.”
Today, the Class of 2019 throughout Kenosha County is in the spotlight with our annual graduation section included in every copy of the Kenosha News.
It was good to see guest columnist Jim Krauser’s op-ed Sunday. Medicare expansion is certainly an issue that needs much more attention.

Everyone who believes that national chain stores should pay their fair share of property taxes should be not just dismayed, but angry, about Wisconsin Assembly Speaker Robin Vos’ refusal to even consider a vote on a bipartisan proposal to end the “dark store exemption.”
Liz Snyder’s recent writings about the comics were entertaining and informative. She is “right on” regarding John Hambrock. He is an excellent cartoonist and a good person.
Control — that is the battle that is being fought in our society today. Who has it? Who is given it? How are they using it? Who are they speaking for?
Whether you’re looking for a job, a victim of identity theft, or just trying to clean up your image, the information about you on the internet may be stubborn and hard to get rid of.
LAUREL: To the Carthage softball team and coach Amy Gillmore, advancing to the NCAA Division III super regionals this weekend for the first time in program history. Now one of the top 16 teams in the country, Carthage faces sixth-ranked Illinois Wesleyan. “We’re peaking at the right time,” s…

The strength of our democracy has been the willingness of its representatives to compromise — not on our republic’s basic principles, but on the paths we pursue to reach our ideals.
More than 50 area residents attended the first Better Angels Skills Workshop on May 4.
As the saying goes, if it sounds too good to be true — it probably is. That is the case with Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren’s proposal for free tuition for all and cancellation of student loan debt. It sounds good. It’s a nice campaign promise.
Editor’s note: Sixth-graders in the class of Susanna Miller at Harborside Academy in Kenosha have been studying the importance of protecting our water resources. Last week they brought awareness of the importance of Lake Michigan’s waters to the community with the unveiling of a special bill…
The comments Kenosha Alderman Curt Wilson made on April 19 in the Southeast Labor Times about Republican voters being racist and having no morals is typical of a hate-filled Democrat who is still mourning the losses of Hillary Clinton and Lisa Neubauer.
We Energies’ executives are afraid of the future, just not the same future that concerns most Americans — a world with more forest fires and more intense heat, drought, and flooding.

With the opening day of the new adventure park coming soon to Bristol Woods County Park/Pringle Nature Center, I’d like everyone to really ask themselves — is it really worth it?
From our first moments in life to our last, a nurse is almost always involved. They are one of the first, if not the first, person to hold a newborn baby entering the world. They often are the ones holding a hand as people leave this world.
You probably use Google Maps to figure out how to get from one place to another.
Finally taking that dream vacation?
The fight over detention centers for illegal immigrants and asylum seekers spread to Wisconsin this year after a private corporation tried to gain approval at two sites in St. Croix County.
You’re welcome, Alex and Kristen. You won’t have to decide whether or not to pull the plug if I’m in a vegetative state, because in my usual imperious way, I’ll have already decided.
After reading the opinion article on high school education, I would like to express my views. I believe I had a high school that motivated students to grow and learn who they are and what they seek to become.
There are some reasons that I could never vote Democratic again. The views of some Democrats are sinful and outlandish. This is what I have observed watching the news:
