Councilor has winner with her proposal

March 17, 2017 • Dear EditorComments (0)

One of my favorite website resources is Snopes.com. It’s straightforward, nonpartisan and well sourced in its findings, and in this era of fake news, it’s a great way to discern fact from fiction. Of course, Snopes is not the only fact-checking website...
