Commentary and Opinions

Washington, DC, December 29 - The year began with a powerful nor'easter that dumped several feet of snow in Massachusetts, forcing major road closings and flight cancellations in the Northeast. In October, heavy rains in the Charleston, South Carolina area resulted in flooding that caused widespread losses. The year ended with deadly tornadoes and floods sweeping through the Midwest and the South.
New York, NY, December 23 - With multiple recent terrorist incidents in the news, and the issues they raise driving heated discussion in the latest Presidential debates, it may come as little surprise to hear that terrorism currently leads the list of issues Americans want to see government action on: 24% of U.S. adults name it – without prompting – among the top issues for the government to address.
Houston, TX, December 16 - Terrorist attacks in such places as offices, concert venues and stadiums in the U.S. and internationally have made it clear that no one's personal safety is guaranteed. While we cannot live in fear, it is wise to live with caution and prudence, says Robert H. Sholly, a retired army colonel who is experienced in both counter-terrorism and performing security assessments for companies internationally.
Colorado Springs, December 3 - "I'm deeply saddened by today's active shooting event in San Bernardino, right on the heels of two similar events in Colorado Springs, CO and of course Paris.  These events hit home for me having managed through similar events in Aurora and Littleton, CO during my tenure at Denver Health Paramedic Division."
