  • Newspapers are still democracy’s backbone

    It’s everywhere. Fake news, as it has been dubbed, though that’s actually a simplified version of what’s going on. 

    It’s not all fake; sometimes it’s merely sensationalized, exaggerated for effect, or so subtle in its manipulations that it looks real to the naked eye.

    How many times have you played a leading role in a real-life winter pageant?

  • Tax simplification needs simplifying

    By John Stossel

    As you read this, President Trump’s tax plan is being debated. Congress will change it. Where this ends, no one knows. 

    I want two things: 

    1. Simplification.

    2. More money in private hands.

  • I’m thankful for Thanksgiving!

    Beth Speaks for Herself — By Beth Urech

    As a child, I loved Thanksgiving. Turkey, yes! Stuffing, yes!  Pumpkin pie, yes! I relished my mom’s salad made with cranberries and orange segments mixed into jello and then scooped into little tin molds.
