  • LETTER: Common sense question

    I want to thank Mayor Terry Cruse for proving my points about him so eloquently in last week’s letter to the editor. And, with regard to common sense, I certainly would have had more common sense than to telegraph my intention to racially profile and to instruct my chief of police – in the newspaper – to target the Latino population by threatening them with ICE. My feeling is Chief Johnson is much, much smarter than that.

  • COLUMN: Be wary of charitable donation requests

     Your charitable donation can help clothe a child, put food on the table for a family in need and bring hope to those who have none. As you open your heart and pocketbook this holiday season, make sure that you give wisely.

     On behalf of the Chamber of Commerce, I would like to thank everyone who helped make the following holiday events a success: Festival of Trees, Christmas Bazaar, Lighting of the Christmas tree and Christmas at Creekfront Park a success.

  • COLUMN: Repost this if you hate chain letters

     There has been an influx of Facebook chain letters that have appeared in my news feed. At first, I didn’t think much of them. I just ignored them, because I knew I would never post one of them.

    However, most of my Facebook friends have, and it doesn’t seem like it’s going to stop anytime soon. Just the other day, I read a forwarded status discussing the website’s supposed new guidelines.
