Our Opinion: Where next?

Our Opinion

In quick succession, FBI Director James Comey dropped two bombshells in the race for president.  On Friday, Oct. 28, Comey revealed a second investigation into Hillary Clinton’s illegal use of private email servers while she was secretary of state. Then, on Sunday, Comey said the second ...

Sally O’Leary

Letters To Editor

Dear Editor: I was as delighted to see the reprise of a 2004 encomium on the life of Sally O’Leary, “...the lady who runs the Pirates” in Saturday’s edition as I was saddened by news of her death last month. For four decades, Sally lived, breathed and loved the Pirates. For seven ...

An anti-corruption vote for Trump

Letters To Editor

Dear Editor, Recalling the den of thieves in the Temple of Jerusalem and the sellers of indulgences in the times of Martin Luther, today we witness a new order of unfaithful stewards bestowing fortunes upon themselves while administering America’s republic. Too often, and at every level of ...

Traveling history

Local Commentaries

Since traveling was on my mind I thought back to the various suitcases that I have used.  When I was young I had a small suitcase that I used to take to dance class.  It was nothing fancy, but it was sturdy.  There was a mirror inside of the cover so it was very handy.  When I got rid of it ...

Mommy wars

Local Commentaries

The woman waited in line behind the young mother who was dealing with her two very busy little girls. She inquired after them sweetly.  After a brief conversation, she lobbed her grenade. ‘Super Mom’ said, “You’ve ruined their lives.” ‘Young Mother’ was shocked. This comment ...

Proportionality

Letters To Editor

Dear Editor: Interesting Letter to the Editor the other day, from a local Clergyman, who perceived Mrs Clinton as a threat to the Second Amendment and our right to defend ourselves.  The ironic thing about American Christians is that we can quote the Bible chapter and verse, but our actions ...

You’re history

Local Commentaries

Sounds like a threat, doesn’t it, maybe spoken by a western movie gunslinger or an organized crime boss. It means you’re a goner. You probably don’t know Alan Kugler. But even if you don’t, you will be familiar and probably impacted by his work. The ironic thing is that Alan is the ...

Ballot referendum

Letters To Editor

Dear Editor: I am writing about a Referendum that will be on our ballot on November 8th. City government wants to change the law that requires them to publish a legal notice when they pass a law.  They don’t want to have to put all the wording of the ordinance in the newspaper, as is now ...

I’m grateful for safety equipment

Local Commentaries

November is the month of gratitude. I have a lot of things to be grateful for. Some are longitudinal - I’m thankful for my children and my family, for our health, for our lives, every day. Other things are situational. This week, I was grateful to be able to claim I’ve skated with the ...

Mysogeny

Letters To Editor

I guess that many of us probably never paid much attention to the word “Mysogeny” simply because it’s not a word you’d hear all that often. Then Donald dump reared his ugly orange head and threw his hat into the political ring and through his actions the word mysogeny became a part of ...

Our Opinion: A real no-brainer

Our Opinion

Tax! Did you have a knee-jerk, negative reaction to the word? Most people do. It is one of a handful of words that solicits that type of response. Recently, Executive Director of the Warren County Visitor’s Bureau, Dave Sherman, asked the Warren County Commissioners to increase ...

Voiceless victims

Letters To Editor

Dear Editor,The letter concerning pro-life and the analogy that the writer uses is rather shaky if he feels his comparison paints those who are pro-life into a corner. There is not even a profound argument on this subject because it has no depth.Those awaiting the execution of the death penalty ...

Our Opinion: Comey’s Bombshell

Our Opinion

Voters already knew Hillary Clinton is a criminal. But for a few months, it appeared she could continue her quest for the presidency without the trouble of being charged for her misdeeds.That may be history. The future may be something entirely different, as the result of a bombshell dropped by ...

Hotel tax/tourism

Letters To Editor

Dear Editor,I was very pleased to read Commissioners Eggleston, and Kafferlin voted to table the bed tax issue two weeks for more information gathering on the proposed increase.I would have to see a line item budget from the WCVB on how they plan to use that estimated $30,000 before approving ...

You’re not pro-life

Letters To Editor

I am writing to address the hypocrisy of the Republican Party and anyone else who calls themselves pro-life yet supports the death penalty.Being pro-life means holding a sacred respect for life from conception until natural death; it is the belief that human beings should not have any input ...

Our Opinion: Inexcusable

Our Opinion

Federal officials have worked hard to portray themselves as the cavalry riding to the rescue of residents of Flint, Mich. It turns out they were walking, and slowly, at that.Local, state and federal officials deserve severe criticism for what happened in Flint. In essence, efforts to save money ...

Government habits

Letters To Editor

Dear Editor,I could write a dozen long letters to explain why I cannot vote for Hillary, but won't bother. Neither candidate can or will do what they claim, but the difference is...TRUMP CAN BE FIRED! And he will fire people caught with their hand in the taxpayers' pocket, and quid pro quo ...

‘A deplorable’

Letters To Editor

Dear Editor,President Obama said he "really really" wants Hillary to become president. He wants her to continue his legacy. If elected, she will.President Obama will or should be remembered as the one who let the most lying, deceitful, weak and corrupt administration, which includes the FBI, ...

Our Opinion: Not justice

Our Opinion

Of course, Americans who harm people overseas intentionally and wrongfully should be punished. Villains should not be able to hide behind the American flag.Our government seems to support that idea. President Barack Obama's administration has not tried to block lawsuits filed by four former ...
