Corruption in politics does not exist

by Barry Durmaz

Just when you thought last year’s Presidential campaign had gotten as ugly as ever—think again. Only three weeks into the Trump Administration and from my perspective, the speeches, debates, and conversations in federal politics set new heights of “shock and awe.” Individual character and the maligning of such is all too often par for the course although not exclusively true.

Most modern parents have been indoctrinated with the notion that if you are your child’s BFF (Best Friend forever) they would have a blissful, intimate relationship with each other forever. The child and the parent’s friendly relationship is supposed to keep all communication between them honest and open throughout their years together. The parent will be told everything going on in the child’s life. There will be no surprises since the child will seek out the parent’s advice before making any decisions.

The USA is a Constitutional Republic, not a democracy. The founders of our nation definitely understood that past democracies, dating back to The Golden Age of Greece, were unstable and prone to radical changes in the direction of the nation.

What is the greatest gift you have received that is not “stuff.” When people hear the word “gift” right away their mind takes them to material gifts. We all enjoy receiving gifts, little presents here and there, but the best gifts are the ones that many of us do not brag about; such as family, education, life, freedom and many other abilities that many of us take for granted. There are many gifts that are of higher importance than materials. These are some of my favorite gifts that have been given to me to cherish.

Op-Ed: Where we go from here

William Smith, Special to Hernando Sun

The nation is divided by race, geography, religion, culture, politics and economic class and we all must ask ourselves where we go from here, individually and as a nation. While it is important to figure out how we got here, we must move forward. Donald Trump has been elected president of the United States; this must be accepted by everyone. Short of an impeachable offense, he will be president of the United States for the next 4 years. No amount of violence, arson, riots or "acts of civil disobedience" will change this fact. Mr.

Two Views: The Meaning of Christmas

by Eighth Grade Student Kobe Chua

Christmas is a very popular and well known holiday, which is celebrated among most Christian denominations. During this event, many people spend their time getting together, singing carols, sharing festive food, and giving each other gifts. Like old traditions, the true meaning of Christmas will die off if it is not celebrated for its intended purpose, which is to commemorate the birth of Jesus Christ.
