TARIFFS: Hold on, folks

July 11, 2018 at 5:00 am

If you think Trump’s tariffs aren’t going to affect you, think again. The price of a new car could increase $5,800. The cost of washers, dryers and dishwashers already have increased 17 percent and televisions 25 percent. His tariffs on alu...

VOTER: Time to get it right

July 08, 2018 at 5:00 am

July 06, 2018 at 5:00 am
