5-31-18 We Take An Unexpected Summer Sabbatical

Cherished Readers:

This morning we are having a new life experience: a shoulder replacement operation!  While this sort of surgery has become almost routine and predictably successful, it will require a period of recuperation and repair.  I look forward to rejoining you from time to time as recovery progresses.

Best wishes for a summer filled with love of family and friends.

While it’s a month away, I close with thoughts of the gift of freedom celebrated on Independence Day.  Let this summer’s Fourth of July remind us of the sacrifices our founders made, affording us our present freedoms.   Let us never forget that that they attributed their achievement to the guidance and protection of our Father God.  Let these thoughts recommit us to ACTIVELY defend freedom’s legacy ourselves, RIGHT NOW IN OUR TIME, for our children.   -dh

Newsmax: Cuomo Squeezing Family Budgets With Wrong Example on Energy Policy *David Holt Op-Ed – National
Following a long winter with record-high heating prices, New Yorkers should appreciate a recent federal appeals court decision which ruled the state Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) took too long to review permits for the Valley Lateral pipeline. Under the façade of environmental protection, the Cuomo administration continues to fight infrastructure projects that would help families and small businesses meet essential energy needs. Per the federal court, Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s administration even denied permits for a natural gas pipeline that would serve a power plant approved by the DEC.
