Missouri Republican candidate Josh Hawley used a Thursday debate to try to paint Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill as too liberal for the increasingly red state of Missouri, while McCaskill continued to hammer her challenger over his positions on health care. The candidates' messaging during the St. Louis debate hosted by St. Louis Public Radio, Nine Network and KSDK Channel 5 reflects broader themes in their campaigns in the final weeks before the Nov. 6 election. Hawley so far has tied himself to President Donald Trump, who won Missouri by nearly 19 percentage points in 2016 and has returned to the state multiple times to drive up support for Hawley, the state's attorney general. Hawley said McCaskill has not accepted "what the people said in 2016" and no longer reflects the views of voters on policies including the recent federal tax overhaul, which she voted against, and a wall on the southern border, which she says is unnecessary. Some members of Congress say the U.S. must act … [Read more...] about Missouri Senate Debate: Hawley Tries to Paint McCaskill as Too Liberal; Health Care and Tariffs Take Center Stage

Give to those most in needI may evoke some anger here, but I am going to argue against North Texas Giving Day. There are numerous entities in the world where the need is much greater and the governments are more willing to help their people but are completely lacking in resources. Texas is not in that category. Our governments could provide many times the resources that they do to help those in need. But they don't do so because keeping our taxes low is considered a higher priority. I do give some money to local organizations but, on the whole, I prefer to direct my modest donations to places where they want to help their people but are unable to do so, rather than to Texas where the resources are there but the will is not.Morris Fried, RichardsonWilonsky's balanced reportingRe: "Groups ride to the rescue of Dallas' senior homeless," by Robert Wilonsky, Sept. 12 Metro & State column.It is a pleasure to see the balanced reporting by Wilonsky on the St. Jude Center … [Read more...] about Letters: North Texas Giving Day, St. Jude Center, Trump’s tweets, Judge Kavanaugh, Burt Reynolds
ACCRA, Ghana — It had been 12 years since Rita Sarpong went home to Ghana. She’d missed siblings’ weddings, the births of nieces and nephews, even the death of her father, sacrificing time with her own family so that she could help frail, aging Americans stay at home with theirs.Almost up to the moment she boarded the plane, Sarpong was working nearly around the clock. A home health aide, she cared for a 90-year-old retired insurance agent with severe arthritis by day. Then at night, she drove from Newton to Wrentham to look after a woman in her 80s who was prone to falling.

After she reached Logan Airport, dragging three suitcases loaded with gifts for her family — mainly used clothes from her closet — Sarpong collapsed in her seat. For the next nine hours, as food carts rolled by carrying lunch, dinner, … [Read more...] about PIPELINE FROM AFRICA: Recent immigrants do much of the low-paying, back-breaking work of caring for frail Americans at home.
