Today's Opinions

  • USPS picks winners and losers

    The newspaper business—both small and large papers—has sounded full-throated opposition this past month about a plan by the U.S. Postal Service to purposely entice advertising out of the newspaper so ads can be placed instead with USPS favored stakeholder Valassis Inc., which bought direct mail company ADVO in 2006.

  • Breaking back in

  • Letter to the editor

    To the editor:
    The other day while I was at the post ofice, I noticed an advertisement flyer for their new “Go Green” stamps. This was double-sided 8.5”x3.75” multi-colored flyer.
    I realize that we (the general public) must purchase stamps  to put our correspondence into the postal delivery system BUT this is a government monopoly and does not need to advertise their product. Where or who do we go to if we need stamps–the USPS (and their distributors)  because only they can produce and sell the product–the STAMP.

  • Ramblings–My mind at large

    The comic book geek and I saw The Rise of the Dark Knight Saturday. He didn’t have to persuade me–I’d been curious too after reading several reviews of the latest Batman movie.
    The theater was filled, but not packed. As we sat there watching the trailers for upcoming movies, I couldn’t help but think about the Aurora, Colo. massacre.

  • City workers get kudos

    To the editor:

          I want to publicly thank two of our city employees, Paul Lord and Kurt Heine.  While reading our gas meter, Paul thought he smelled gas and reported it.  A pin-hole leak was found on the city side and within two hours the pipe was replaced. 

     And even though we don’t like to see trees cut back, the tree trimmers, Michael Miller and Franklin Tyndal, also need to be recognized for the very dangerous work they do to keep limbs out of the power lines.

  • Wake up America, we have a sin problem

    To the editor:

    In the aftermath of the Friday night massacre in Aurora, Colo., one only needs to turn to the statements of Mike Huckabee, former Arkansas governor and presidential candidate

    “We don’t have a crime problem or a gun problem, or even a violence problem. We have a sin problem.

    And since we ordered God out of our schools and communities, the military and public conversations, we really shouldn’t act so surprised when all hell breaks loose.”
