  • Coal-fired power plants creating breathing problems

    Editor:
    I mean to write this before the election. The ads saying Obama wanted to put coal miners out of a job, that’s not what he meant. Coal is a very dirty pollutant. That’s why the EPA has required coal-fired power plants have had to put in scrubbers to clean what goes into the air cleaner.

  • Home for the Holidays: Is your car up for the journey?

    Editor:
    Before packing up the car to head home for the holidays, make sure your vehicle is ready for the journey. Conducting a thorough vehicle inspection will help avoid the inconvenience and potential safety hazards of breaking down miles away from home.

  • The trip(s) to bountiful

    Editor:
    It’s the journey. Not the destination. For sure.

  • Nevada, rebirth of a free nation

    Editor:
    Just the other day in Nevada Americans stood strong and I truly believe history was being made and a rebirth of a free nation is at hand. Sad to say it will take a little longer because the un-American government backed off when we the people did not cow under.

  • Reader responds to minimum wage letter

    Editor:
    In response to Tod Griffin’s letter (Feb. 13, 2014) about not increasing the minimum wage, Tod said that it was a fact that raising the minimum wage would fail miserably as an anti-poverty policy but Tod fails to cite proof. Everything I’ve seen says the opposite.
    He claims that “Raising the minimum wage would in fact reduce job opportunities for young minorities” but again fails to cite facts supporting this often repeated lie.

  • Postmaster requests keep mailboxes clear

    Editor:
    Severe wintery weather conditions can create challenges for everyone, especially those whose job requires them to work outside in the elements. Postal letter carriers are among those who brave the snow, ice, sleet, and freezing rain to provide service to the community.  
    Letter carriers can be the first to visit someone’s home before snow removal or salting begins. That’s why I’m asking Trimble county residents to include the regular upkeep of residential mailboxes as part of any snow and ice removal routine. 

  • Citizens encouraged to attend meeting on waste landfill Feb. 20

    Editor:
