Most of the time I drive 70 mph on an interstate highway; occasionally, I kick it up to 71. At my age, blowing through the posted speed makes me feel like 2019 Indianapolis 500 winner Simon Pagenaud.
It is the Fourth of July weekend. Our nation’s 243rd birthday. It is a time for celebration with grilling, beer, friends and family. But we should not start the celebration before stopping even for a moment and reflecting on what it means for our country to celebrate its birthday and what it…
It is tempting for normal people to ignore our president when he starts ranting about treason and corruption at the FBI. I understand the temptation. I'm the object of many of his rants, and even I try to ignore him.
An old guy was driving along on an interstate highway, in the left-hand lane, going 55; which you can do on interstates. Heck, the minimum speed limit is 45. Most of the 45ers are trying to commit suicide.
This is an observation that will, hopefully, not result in my issuing a mea culpa: Women are busybodies. Their key mission in life is to compile endless “honey do” lists. To a certain extent, that is commendable.
The Shelbyville Daily Union has a long history in this community. We've been serving Shelby County since 1863, and we intend to continue doing so for a long time to come.
Happy day, huh; read on and after reading this column you might throw yourself off the roof. Maybe, even jump off a cliff, or do yourself in with a wet spoon.
The whole world was shocked and dismayed at the horrific murder of innocent worshipers at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand. Every Western country condemned the attack as a vicious senseless and evil massacre against innocent people at their places of worship. Every newspaper in the W…
One of the obligations of a parent is to make their children eat things they hate. Where and when this sadistic practice emerged, no one really knows. Rare is a victory gained for a serving of broccoli.
Elmer T. Bass, a Make America Great Again guy, walked into the local bar, plopped down on a stool beside me and ordered a Black Russian. Turning to me, he rumbled, “Are you that FAKE news guy, Harry Reynolds?”
Tuan Pham’s family founded its grocery store in Illinois 23 years ago. The Hoang-Anh Oriental Food Store in East Moline proudly serves Quad Cities shoppers, especially the Asian-American immigrant community.
WASHINGTON – A four-word phrase common on late-night television, exclaimed by announcers giddy about their offers: "Buy this kitchen knife that is so sharp it can slice and dice diamonds, and we'll throw in a nonstick frying pan that can double as a satellite dish. BUT WAIT! THERE'S MORE! If…

State Rep. Brad Halbrook, R-Shelbyville, says the minimum wage hike approved by the Illinois House will hurt local businesses throughout the state and make it more difficult for the state to overcome the current financial problems.

The angel Goldenrod walked into my favorite bar and plopped down beside me. He ordered a Black Russian, which he dispatched quickly, and called the bartender to refill his glass. The bartender was ahead of him, having had a revelation.
WASHINGTON – His tractor is so noisy that, when driving it, the man who calls himself "just a farmer from Butler County" puts his cellphone under his cap, set on vibrate. Charles Grassley, 85, who has served in the Senate longer than all but 11 of the 1,983 other senators – and who still run…
