Editor’s Word: The Journal Staff stands against the Secretary of Education

Throughout the confirmation hearings, the then-nominee Betsy DeVos, who practically paid her way to the Secretary of Education position, displayed her utter lack of experience in public education.

Businessman to president: Treating a country like a company

Patrick Holmes

Donald Trump has signed many controversial executive orders just a few weeks into his presidency. These decisions have seemed to benefit money, power and selfishness rather than unity, love and acceptance. Possibly a plethora of Americans agree with the following sentiment due to the many protests that have erupted in major cities across the country...

Editor’s word: Immigration ban does not represent the people of Suffolk
