  • Voters have a right to know

    Editor’s note: The following editorial is from The Republican in Springfield (Mass.), and was originally published on Sept. 16.

    Hillary Clinton got a note from her doctor. And Donald Trump appeared on some TV show and yakked about his well-being.

    Each would now have the citizens believe that they’ve sufficiently addressed questions about their health. But both are wrong. What they’ve done is better than nothing, but a candidate for the highest office in the land cannot get by with better than nothing.

  • Work of Art: Time is money — and then some

    Remember when a nickel would buy us a candy bar or a bottle of pop? And even a penny amounted to something when inserted into a gumball machine. I recall that the Coke machine in the mechanics’ area at B.M. Werley Auto Company, the Ford dealership on Grand and University, got rid of possibly the last nickel pop machine in town, charging a dime for the “new and improved” product.  

    And the jerks that replaced the machine didn’t even provide a bottle larger than the six-ounce drink we received.

  • Just a Thought: The best advice you have ever been given

    By Rick Kraft

    What is the best advice you have ever been given? Is this a hard question to answer with the single biggest piece of advice you have ever been given or are there several pieces of advice that come to your mind that you think are equally valuable?

    Do you take advice well? Or put another way, do you receive other’s wisdom openly?

    Great service at Alta Vista Hospital
    Recently, I spent several days in the Alta Vista hospital due to an illness that required my hospitalization. Generally speaking, no time spent in the hospital is a pleasant experience, but I must say, that the staff was most professional and helpful to me.

    The nursing corps, the food service, and the staff at all levels made my stay as comfortable as could reasonably be expected. I do not want to mention them by name because, if I forget someone, I would not want them to feel slighted in any way.

    Compiled by The Associated Press
    The Dallas Morning News on the public having a right to medical records of presidential candidates (Sept. 12):
    The nation is about to elect one of its oldest presidents. On inauguration day, Donald Trump would be 70, the oldest president ever elected. Hillary Clinton would be 69, the second-oldest president, right behind Ronald Reagan.

    THUMBS DOWN! HIGHLANDS PLACED ON PROBATION
    The Higher Learning Commission has placed Highlands University on probation after determining that the school is out of compliance with accreditation standards it is required to follow. Highlands remains accredited while on probation, but there’s no question that this is a serious matter for the school. Highlands President Sam Minner said he’s confident he can institute the changes needed to get Highlands off probation as soon as possible.
