Remember Bush-Cheney Does anyone remember George W. Bush and Dick Cheney? They were president and vice president a mere eight years ago. Does anyone out there remember the way things were at the end of their duo? It was terrible...

Raise The Minimum Wage I wanted to offer a different perspective on the issue of raising the minimum wage. The argument that raising the minimum wage will result in job loss is a bogus scare tactic. The need for labor will not change, just the cost of it, which will be passed on to the consumer, as it always has...

They've Got Moxie

Think you know folk music? Familiar with traditional instruments?

Catching Up with Jim Hawley

Music Kristi Kates Music has always been a part of Jim Hawley’s life. When he was a kid, he’d listen to his grandmother play piano. In grade school, he’d find local bands practicing in their garages, and would sit and listen. By high school, he’d become friends with a guy who played guitar, and that friend started teaching Hawley how to play.
