TURNOUT: An inside story

November 15, 2017 at 5:00 am

Benjamin Franklin was once asked what kind of government we will have. “A Republic, ma’am, if you can keep it,” he replied. I am very concerned after last Tuesday’s election with only 8.45 percent turnout that maybe ol’ Benjamin was onto so...

RESPONSE: ISIS wants you, Bob

November 15, 2017 at 5:00 am

Bob Ridout, you are one sick puppy! You think that killing millions of American people on the West Coast would be a win. Maybe you should go join ISIS. I sure hope somebody with mental problems like yours doesn’t own an assault weapon (rifl...

RESPONSE: Writer nuked his credibility

November 15, 2017 at 5:00 am

Mr. Ridout,I found your recent letter about North Korea to be profoundly disturbing. Perhaps you meant it to be funny, but joking about American cities being wiped out by nuclear weapons as a “win-win” just because they vote differently tha...

RESPONSE: Don’t advocate murder

November 15, 2017 at 5:00 am

This is in response to Bob Ridout’s letter. Don’t we have enough divisiveness in this country without people such as yourself who feel the need to create more of the same? Why would you wish people, who have a different political view than ...

KOREA: On second thought...

November 12, 2017 at 5:00 am

North Korea’s missile and nuclear programs may not be a problem. They would likely hit West Coast cities from Seattle to Los Angeles. These are Democratic Party sanctuary cities run by left-wing airheads. We would retaliate by turning North...

PLASTIC: Killing ocean life

November 12, 2017 at 5:00 am

While waiting for my wife to get done grocery shopping, it made me mad and sad to see 99 out of 100 people using plastic bags to carry their groceries in. I read a report that said 95 percent of all garbage in the ocean is plastic. I don’t ...

To all who volunteered their time on my campaign and supported my candidacy, from the bottom of my heart, thank you. We fought with honor. We took the high road running a clean, honest campaign and advancing it against all odds. As my frien...

HOUSE: White to Big

November 12, 2017 at 5:00 am

I guess it’s just human nature although somewhat cynical for us little guys wanting to see high rollers taken down. Truly, it does make me happy. The system IS working. I see Mueller is going after the small fish for now, but soon he will b...

VOTE: Conflicting interests

November 12, 2017 at 5:00 am

Who should I cast my ballot for? I’m pro life, believe in God and attend church regularly. I can’t vote Democrat, because they support abortion and stem cell research. I can’t vote Republican, because they support the death penalty. The pop...
