On Trump’s win, social media, energy

November 29, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

It has been several weeks since the presidential election and this deplorable liberation proudly voted for Donald Trump, aka The Clown as dubbed by the media. If there were any one primary reason that Trump is now the president-elect is because of the venue...

Republicans don’t need grief counseling

November 26, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

When our guys lose an election, conservatives get despondent, but we don’t seek grief counseling or protest like some Democrats. We don’t riot and beat our opponents, either. Democrats lost because they treat devout Catholics, evangelical Christians, and...

Advice for country and new president

At long last, the election is over. Only rarely have I voted for the best candidate; I usually voted against the worst candidate. This recent election was definitely a choice between the lesser of two evils. We were saved from a third Obama term. Now that the...

Superintendent interview missed important issue

The school superintendent interview in the recent Sunday paper was pretty interesting, and we hope it continues as does the monthly interview with the mayor. Both individuals deal with similar sized budgets and issues, though the superintendent deals with...

No way to run city or a train

November 19, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

Because of the sweetheart contracts the Keller boys had with the city, Mr. Polasek received six months severance pay and Mr. Phillips received three months severance pay — so the city now has two ex-city managers and one interim city manager on the books....

City’s upkeep severely lacking

November 19, 2016 • Dear EditorComments (0)

Regarding Cahoon Pool, it is a shame that the city decided to shut down the pool with little or no input from the people, leaving no public pool in the center of town for several years. The alternatives do not work well for a lot of people. Yes it is old,...
