Letter: Support bills that help families

November 15, 2022, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

As jobless benefit applications rise slightly, the connections to other challenges we face must be considered (“Slightly more Americans apply for jobless benefits last week,” Associated Press, Nov. 10).

Letter: Pollsters, pundits underperform

November 15, 2022, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

I am done with the political pollsters and pundits.

Letter: Thankful for rational president

November 13, 2022, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

A couple recent letters have criticized President Joe Biden and blamed him for all the woes of the world. I suppose it’s his fault certain European countries have even higher inflation and gas prices than we do. All I can say is that I am grateful to have a profoundly… Read story

Letter: Women should take responsibility

November 13, 2022, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

Women should absolutely have the right to choose, but it should be the right to choose not to get pregnant in the first place. Except in rare cases, once a woman is pregnant, she gives up her choice whether to continue with the pregnancy. The false notion that a woman… Read story

November 13, 2022, 6:00am Letters to the Editor

Letter: Single-use plastics create crisis

November 13, 2022, 6:00am Letters to the Editor
