Dear Editor, I am appreciative of your inclusion of the article entitled “Unity College Joins Letter on Climate Action” in the January 5, 2017 issue of this newspaper.  The article highlighted a letter signed by 170 leaders of institutions of higher education urging President-elect Trump and members of Congress to continue US participation in the […]

As a concerned American citizen it troubles me to see the decline in patriotism and I believe an anti-American sentiment across the nation over the past several years. Our country seems divided in the likes we have not seen in decades, a war on law enforcement declared in unprecedented numbers as police officers are being […]

By Dr. Glenn Mollette I hope 2017 can be a good year for you. Whatever you can do to assist with the success of your year will be very helpful. A local businessman remarked recently, “The harder I work, the luckier I get.” All of us are recipients of some bad luck throughout life. Often […]

Buyer’s Remorse Yet?

While I try to restrict most of my internet reading to major trusted sources with real life brick-and-mortar headquarters, such as PBS and such, occasionally I do run across items I consider worth sharing with others, including your paper.

Mean and Meandering Meanings

I shed a tear in my beer the other day, when I thought about how misunderstood the lowly liberal is here in America.  And so the story goes… Recently, a friend of mine, who goes by the name of Mr. Ron Alexander, wrote a pretty good letter to the editor.  I thought it was a […]

What America needs is a good Irish nun to stand up to bully Donald Trump

Written on July 26, 2016 at 7:27 pm, by

A dear friend of mine, Irish writer Dermot McEvoy, recently wrote an article first published in Irish Central which I consider one of the best ever on the subjects of anti-bullying and Donald Trump.  It’s a two-fer! Dermot was born in Ireland and moved with his family to the US at the age of four. […]

What a “liberal” is.

Written on July 26, 2016 at 6:15 pm, by

In July 21’s Democrat Ron Alexander, bless his heart, seems to have no idea of what a “liberal” is. A liberal may be a Republican, Democrat, Green Party or any just plain citizen. The word liberal is not a dirty word and in fact it probably is most appropriate to describe a good Christian man […]
