For specifics, these bills are House File 8, which would restrict school staff from giving “instruction of any kind” on gender identity and sexual orientation in K-3rd grade classrooms, and House File 9, which prohibits school staff from “affirming” a student’s gender identity and preferred …
Although I still work in Muscatine, moving to and living in Davenport has been an interesting experience. However, I think I can say that it’s been a fairly positive one. As someone who had only ever been to a couple Davenport locations such as the Figge and NorthPark Mall, it’s been fun fin…
National Democrats' decision to remove Iowa from the first five primary states signals the party's move away from rural voters toward urban voters.
Mr. Vice President, and Mr. Speaker, and Members of the Senate and House of Representatives:
OUR VIEW: It's great to be back doing what we love
OUR VIEW: A clean break is needed, not timid hedging that hopes he’ll go away on his own
Even if you’ve never played a single game or watched a single episode of the anime, I’m sure that most of you who are reading this have, at the very least, heard of the creature-collecting franchise known as “Pokemon.”
OUR VIEW: Democracy shines while Trump and transparency tumble
As someone who loves both animation and going to the movie theater, this year has been a pretty great one in terms of animated movies – and, with it nearly being the end of the year, I find myself looking back on all the great films that I’ve come out and that I’ve gotten to enjoy.
The Scott County Board of Supervisors race in the 2022 general election features six candidates running for three seats.
Back when COVID-19 was in full swing, I think it truly struck people just how much we rely on socializing. Even with the most introverted of us, there are still times where we just want to go out and enjoy ourselves – times where we don’t mind being part of a big crowd, because everyone ther…
To those readers who read my last editorial regarding cats (which was all the way back in November) and how I believe older cats in shelters should be given a chance at finding a forever home through adoption, I still very much stand by that statement.
Public ignorance and blind party loyalty are a candidate's best friend.
When conservatives talk about so-called “entitlements,” they act as if it’s charity.
STATE JOURNAL VIEW: Chronic distraction to learning needs restriction so teachers can teach
Evidence is mounting that Donald Trump may have defrauded donors when he solicited funds to challenge the 2020 election result but then diverted donations elsewhere. If confirmed, it would hardly be the first time he has used bait-and-switch tactics to swindle and deceive those naive enough …
January 6, 2021, is a day seared in the minds of most Americans, but as time passes and memories fade, not everyone will recall just how horrific it actually was.
A CNN reporter correctly confronted the Uvalde, Texas, school district chief of police on Wednesday, refusing to take no for an answer when Chief Pedro Arredondo repeatedly tried to sidestep the reporter and avoid answering crucial questions about last week’s school massacre. Arredondo escap…
It’s always kind of crazy when something that’s been around for so long gives its final bow, especially when that thing has been such a staple part of your life. I was born in 1995, and only a little over a year later, a little show called “Arthur” would premiere on PBS Kids.
Thumbs Up ... to River Bend Food Bank, which announced plans this week for an expansion. For 40 years, the food bank, which has operated in both Iowa and Illinois, has been an integral part in helping to feed the needy in the immediate Quad-Cities, as well as a large number of counties on both sides of the river.
For the younger generation, education isn’t just beneficial or a tool for them to use to get a job later down the line. For some, it can be life-changing and even life-saving, and for others, school may be their only safe space.
The other week, I went to see “Spiderman: No Way Home” with my dad and younger brother. I’m not super into the whole Marvel Cinematic Universe. I’ve seen a few movies here and there, but I’m not hardcore into it like others are. But with this movie, I knew I really wanted to give it a watch …
Stan Kroenke, the trash-talking man St. Louisans love to hate, is under increasing pressure to settle the court case over the Ram's 2016 move.
From the Wisconsin State Journal editorial board: "Vigilantes carrying rifles in the streets won't make our society safer."
From the St. Louis Post-Dispatch editorial board: "The vigilante community across America must be jubilant."
The NFL’s team owners, a band of billionaire brothers, are getting nervous as the St. Louis lawsuit over the Rams’ relocation forces them to make some very uncomfortable decisions on financial disclosure. Ben Frederickson joins Tod Robberson to discuss the issue. Video by Chris Drury/Post-Dispatch
