BYH to the one saying that Democrats don't believe in America's borders. Where do they get this stuff? I've never heard...

Values needed on the bench

Loading…

Friday, October 12, 2018

This year as many voters go to the polls to elect officials, we search for criteria to validate our vote. What qualities should we value most and which candidates possess those qualities? Scripture provides timeless qualities in Deuteronomy 1:13, “Choose wise, understanding and knowledgeable people from each precinct and I will set them over you.”

The Bible mentions three important qualities to be considered. Wisdom refers to the ability to bring harmony even when great differences exist. Understanding refers to the ability to penetrate the realities of life and deal fairly with parties in dispute. And knowledge is the broad experience gained in life by making correct choices and following the right path.

These qualities are not exclusive biblical concepts; but they are qualities that work in a lawful society. These are qualities I have found on display in the life of attorney Daniel Hines Entzminger. He seeks to insure that everyone is treated fairly regardless of their level of representation.

As a practicing attorney, he seeks to bridge the gap in people’s lives between failure and success in the criminal justice system. He seeks truth, justice and fairness, balanced with compassion and accountability. As a husband, father, son and brother, he understands the value of second chances and he seeks to provide people with purpose and direction.

Daniel Entzminger has demonstrated an interest in finding ways to help people become the best version of themselves. I am confident your family and mine will be in good hands with Daniel Hines Entzminger serving on the bench as District Court Judge. Please consider giving him your support and vote in the upcoming election.

The Orange County Register got it right, and thank you Daily Reflector for including it in your Other Voices column.

“For too long, Congress has abdicated its constitutional obligations with respect to war powers.” Did you know the U.S. military is currently deployed and combat ready in…

My sincere thanks to the George H.W. Bush family for giving us all a chance to remember what America is all about. 

The patriatism, the integrity and the honesty was a refreshing reminder of what I value in my country. The kind, respectful and humorous words were a pleasure to hear.  

I…

Maybe I or the Reflector got this wrong: $20 million assigned for athletic deficit and facilities; $10 million of that from a $95 million ECU Physicians accrued fund balance. It is to be spent because attendance is down at athletic events and the athletes need a special place to eat. I hope I or…

Donald Bryson, Civitas Institute president, has it all wrong in his “Stop the government takeover of health care,” piece in The Daily Reflector on Nov. 29. Most of the world’s industrial countries whose health care systems are government run have healthier populations than the U.S.…

In this season of hope, love and renewal, someone representing us, America The Beautiful, tear-gassed a pregnant woman and her children at our border. Others were gassed too.

From the perspective of the agent, there might have been a provocation for the gassing. Perhaps he perceived a threat,…

Pipelines are far and away the safest way to move energy, far safer than alternative means. And the state could receive more than $2.5 billion in tax revenues from offshore leasing, per a recent analysis, in turn helping families.

Yet those who decry energy or cheer when a pipeline permit is…

Reasonable people differ. I learned the truth of this back in the day when I was a student at the finest law school in all of Washtenaw County. The late renowned Whitmore Gray taught it to us in our Contracts course. He also taught us to never indulge in ad hominem commentary pertaining to folks…

America has 23,648 military personnel in the proximity of the demilitarized zone in Korea. Why?

North Korea has not crashed our southern border. North Koreans are not throwing rocks and bottles at our border agents, many who are hispanic. They are not overwhelming our schools, hospitals and social…

I have been wanting to write this letter for some time. Just about every doctor in rural America that I have known practices psychiatry to some extent with their patients every day.

Unfortunately the only way to determine with any certainty that a patient is truly psychotic and therefore a danger…

In a recent letter, James H. Dautremont (Public Forum, Nov. 21) makes two outrageous claims: Israel is the reason the U.S. chooses to ignore Saudi government complicity in the murder of Jamal Khashoggi, and the current wave of antisemitism in our country is a response to a misalignment of…
