Editor: Every decision by voters should be taken very seriously. It's our role as active citizens in this republic. This year, we have rare open seats for the U.S. Senate seat and our coastal Congressional seat. Our home front faces incredible challenges from a weak economy and illegal immigration to a lack of an energy policy and a broken healthcare system. Add to this a volatile world from the middle east to China and Russia and enemies circling America and Israel.

One of my favorite songs of all time is the 1969 hit "Sugar, Sugar" by the Archies. The song rose to # 1 on the billboard hot 100 list – knocking off the Rolling Stones from the top of the chart – and stayed there for four weeks.
