American Legion Baseball: A historic achievement for the 1996 ALW Series champs

By Richard Walker American Legion Baseball Dec 08, 2021 Twenty-five years ago, Yardley, Pa., Western Post 317 set history twice.

It also became arguably the country’s most dominant American Legion Baseball program of the 1980s and has advanced to the ALWS in three different decades. That success created a culture that new coach Justin Konnick hopes to continue. “The town of Boyertown lives for... Read more →

What has Happened to American Education?

Dorothy Philbin | CNBNews Contributor Back "in the day" (1960s) the United States had the best educational system in the world.

They don’t like big government mandates that interfere with their individual freedoms. People don’t like the Democrat vision of teaching our children about how the white people are all racists in their treatment of minorities and trying to divide us instead of unite us. All three...
