Benishek Doesn’t Understand

Congressman Benishek claims to understand the needs of families, yet he wants to repeal the Affordable Care Act, which would cause about 10 million people to lose their health insurance. He must think as long as families can hold fundraisers they don’t need insurance...

(Un)Truth In Advertising

Constant political candidate ads on TV are getting to be too much to bear 45 days before the election...

Rare Tuttle Rebuttal

Finally, I disagree with Stephen Tuttle. His “Cherry Bomb” column in the 8/4/14 issue totally dismayed me. I always love his wit and the slamming of the 1 percent. His use of fact and hyperbole highlights the truth; until “Cherry Bomb.” Oh man, Stephen...

Say No To Fluoride

Do you or your child’s teeth have white, yellow, orange, brown, stains, spots, streaks, cloudy splotches or pitting? If so, you may be among millions of Americans who now have a condition called dental fluorosis...

Questions Of Freedom

The administration’s “Affordable Health Care Act” has ordered religious orders to provide contraception and chemical abortions against the church’s God given beliefs and teachings … an interesting order, considering the First Amendment’s clear prohibitions...

Those of us who oppose the project are being labeled as uncompassionate citizens...

Roads and Republicans

I strongly disagree with Mr. Tuttle’s piece insisting that we keep National Cherry Festival exactly as it remains. Many residents, including myself, are not in favor of eliminating the festival, but rather asking some very poignant questions...

A Real Farmers Market

The ongoing practice of farmer’s market vendors reselling produce they don’t grow themselves, and failing to identify it as such, has never been about “big farmer versus little farmer,” as one of the resellers claims, but rather about transparency and being straightforward and telling the truth to buyers...

Congrats on the Wet House

How wonderful to see that there are people who are intelligent, compassionate and actively doing something to help those with addictions and mental differences which are viewed with critical disapproval by many. Mental challenges and addictions to drugs and alcohol are not unique to homeless men, these things affect both men and women and people from all income levels...

The Ripple Effect of the Mario Batali Tweet
