    THUMBS DOWN! TOXIC ALGAE
    It took about two months, but state Game and Fish biologists have pinpointed what they believe killed more than 100 elk north of Las Vegas in August. The culprit: water from a trough containing toxins created by blue-green algae or cyanobacteria. It’s unfortunate that these elk died, but it’s good to know they weren’t intentionally poisoned.

  • Certain death vs. a chance at life

    Ms. (Joan) Krohn seems willingly to have misread the critique of her “trust women” theme and, in the process, to have made some amazing leaps of logic.

    A historical era can be many years or a short time, and is not so much determined by its duration, as by its significance.

  • Editorial Roundup: Newspaper opinions from around the nation - Oct. 25, 2013

    Gainesville (Fla.) Sun on cruel punishment (Oct. 20):
    It’s hard to have sympathy for someone executed for committing a horrific crime.
    In fact, some would say that murderers who make their victims suffer get off too easy when executed by lethal injection.
    Yet as long as our nation’s Constitution bans cruel and unusual punishment, and its people desire to be guided by their best and not their basest instincts, we need to question whether those values are consistent with our use of the death penalty.
