Yuma Sun - - OPINION - BY ARGUS HAMIL­TON

• Fol­som High School of­fi­cials in Cal­i­for­nia on Thursday banned stu­dents from chant­ing USA dur­ing games or at pep ral­lies. They are afraid it might of­fend some His­panic stu­dents. My take is, this is a Cal­i­for­nia pub­lic school so we should be cel­e­brat­ing the fact that the stu­dents can spell USA.

• Pres­i­dent Trump’s ap­proval jumped 10 points last week when polls show Amer­i­cans ap­proved his han­dling of hur­ri­canes Har­vey and Irma. It’s called a charmed life. Hun­dreds of thou­sands of Amer­i­cans were res­cued from the hur­ri­canes while Don­ald Trump was res­cued BY the hur­ri­canes.

• Pres­i­dent Trump and First Lady Me­la­nia toured a few of the Hur­ri­cane Irma stricken ar­eas in Naples where the pres­i­dent promised federal aid to re­build. After a long wait, the people of Mi­ami got the news they wanted. The new iPhone 8 will be avail­able to rob later this month.

• Pres­i­dent Trump in­cited ire among GOP con­ser­va­tives by host­ing a din­ner at the White House to dis­cuss il­le­gal im­mi­gra­tion is­sues with Nancy Pelosi. The evening made his­tory. It was the first time that The Don­ald in­vited a woman his own age to din­ner since LBJ was the pres­i­dent.
