Trump’s budget proposal honors his campaign

While the military receives a budget boost of $54 billion, 12 departments take a hit. And surprisingly the agricultural department is among the losers with a projected cut of 21 percent.

It’s a struggle at times to find words.

I am a communication arts major, with my emphasis in journalism. I competed in speech for four years in high school, and I did events where I had to write my own speeches. I was a thespian on my high school stage for four years. I have interviewed for four jobs, and so far have a perfect record of coming out with job offers (knock on wood…). I taught a summer camp for two years where I spoke in front of groups of three to 25 kids at a time, and most of the time I kept their attention. I have been interviewed on a statewide radio program, and have presented for a church group. I write a monthly column in The West Nebraska Register and write at least one article a week in The Eagle.
