  • Freedom Caucus like Kardashians

    The Tea Party Republicans; a group of Republican members of the US House of Representatives’ has seemingly become too wishy washy and fraught with liberal thoughts for some members of the group.

    A splinter group of these Tea Partiers has established themselves as the Freedom Caucus – apparently because “The Sons of Anarchy” was taken.

  • In the Service of Print

    Community newspapers are unique creatures in the printing world.

    When print publication reached its peak and took a southern nose dive in the early aughts -- leaving the massive metropolitan outlets to shed staff and cut pages -- media scholars and moguls scratched their heads. They couldn’t figure out how these small-circulation, local-specific, mom-and-pop papers seemed to be getting along without them.

  • Letters to the Editor: Snow Plows & RTW

    Snow plows

    I received an email regarding vehicles parked in the streets making it difficult for the road crews to plow the snow. I wish cars could be ticketed because in my neighborhood people constantly park on both sides of the street, making it difficult to even drive in between the cars, much less get a snow plow through! It’s one thing to have an occasional visitor park on the edge of the street, but residents should keep their cars in their driveways. How about a little write up in the paper?

  • Everyone’s good here

    One of the most memorable places I’ve ever been is the House of Anne Frank in Amsterdam. One of the most startling lines I have ever read in any book was the quote in Anne Frank’s book The Diary of a Young Girl that read: “I do believe that deep within his (her) heart, every person is good.” She made this statement as she was being hunted down by the Nazis.
