Today's Opinions

  • Editorial Cartoon - August 12, 2011
  • Thumbs - Our high country lowdown on the news

    THUMBS UP - PEOPLE, IT’S FAIRE TIME. That’s right, it’s time once again for the Peoples Faire, a two-day event again this year filled with arts and crafts, music, food and entertainment. It’ll be going on at Carnegie Park, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday this weekend, so don’t miss out.

  • Equal, with minds of our own

    I read the rebuttal to Tom McDonald’s July 4 editorial. I personally feel that Mr. McDonald runs a good newspaper, and that he is very fair. Mr. McDonald has the same right as all of us to express our freedom of speech. He only writes what is his opinion, and what he thinks.

  • This is still a great nation

  • U.S. loves and proliferates war

    The good old U.S.A. loves war. It proliferates war. It has always loved war. It loves killing, maiming, injuring, and incapacitating human beings, including it’s own citizens. This government loves war.

  • A new online addiction

    Over the last couple of weeks I have to confess that I’ve developed a serious addiction.

    I used to be someone who wakes up in the morning to check the daily news headlines and have a bowl of cereal. But lately, I have to indulge this addiction first. In fact, I indulge almost any moment I can steal away from work or anything else I happen to be doing at the time.

    In my defense, I don’t think this is a terribly bad addiction. Except of course, that this new addiction simply adds to a prior addiction I already had.

  • Concerned about lack of incinerator

    It bothers me to learn that there isn’t any money to build a new incinerator to dispose of dead animals. Seems to me that those who respect humane treatment of animals (dead or alive) would  also be concerned.  

    I would encourage the city to aggressively request and seek funding for this project.  I appreciate Councilwoman Tonita Gurule-Giron’s concern and hope others will  also express their thoughts.  Quality of life does not only apply to humans, and a community that doesn’t  accommodate the needs of all creatures
