October 22, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

I quite agree with a recent guest on CNN News. If Donald Trump had made sexual advances to those women, why did they not bring charges against the millionaire and demand payment from him?

Follow Golden Rule during this campaign

October 22, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

It was with great sadness I read the article in the Oct. 19 RDR regarding thefts and destruction of yard signs for various political candidates. I realize this election cycle has been cast in divisive, even polarizing terms, but such behavior is beneath us as...

On Wednesday evening, I listened to Bill Clinton give his speech as a character witness for Hillary Clinton. It was a revelation. I learned that Hillary must actually be a composite of Eleanor Roosevelt, Margaret Thatcher, Rosa Parks and Mother Theresa. Her...

Vandalizing signs a ‘deplorable’ action

October 19, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

An organized group has been repeatedly stealing, burning, destroying and defacing Republican political signs all over town. A few signs would be petty theft and misdemeanor vandalism, but the combined total of theft and damage now puts this perverted behavior...

Inspired to recall some days gone by

October 19, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

Writing has always been my passion, and I’ve written many poems, and a short story about growing up without a daddy. He passed away two months before I was born. He worked on the O.B. Berry farm in Dexter, and if he had lived, I would have been born while...
