Passover and Easter — Ronald Reagan 1983

By C. Douglas Golden and Penny Starr March 30, 2018 President Ronald Reagan knew how to commemorate Passover and Easter.  In 1983, he gave a powerful radio address to the American people on how the Judeo-Christian tradition was deeply associated with freedom and our values.  He acknowledged the struggle of the Jewish people over oppression, the promise of the resurrection of Jesus Christ, and the season to “give thanks for our blessings.” “This week, Jewish families and friends have been celebrating Passover, a tradition rich in symbolism and meaning.  Its observance reminds all of us that the struggle for freedom […]

Tower Air

In 1991, at the end of Desert Storm, a 19 year old U.S. Army Cavalry Scout Private, who had just spent 8 months at war, sat out on a street at Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia.

Derrick Days Republican Booth 2019

Saturday, April 27, 2019 The annual “Derrick Days” Festival was established in 1976 to commemorate Corsicana’s rich oil history and its significant impact on the community’s development.
