My fear is that I may be wedging my way between the various political vitriolic diatribes that all too often fill this page. However, there is one thing I know that I have the right to do; my right to say thank you.

I express sincere thanks to the EMS team for coming to my rescue Jan. 6. My garage door opener was not working so I tried to close the door manually; in the process, my middle and ring finger on my left hand became lodged in one of the folding cracks of the door. Unable to dislodge them, I b…

On Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, the 28th of November 2019, there appeared in the pages of the Reaper a letter entitled “Americans don’t care.” Well, I certainly do care and I have watched many of the impeachment hearings, contrary to what the author of that page claims. Yes, from all I’ve see…

Thank you Sara for stating the facts about Donald Trump. I watched the hearings all day every day, just as you did... all of the hearings. I found it to be disgusting that our President would think his actions were ok, or as he put it, “it was a perfect call. ”

I agree with Sara Straw, Reaper, Jan. 9, 2020, p. 3A, that the federal budget is a financial disaster. The interest along on the $23 trillion exceeds federal revenue. The people’s pressure on Congress to sponsor and support HR 24, Federal Reserve Transparency Act, is a must if we are to cont…

Sara Straw, Reaper, Dec. 26, p. 3A, comments on Fascism coming to America and fails to recognize it in the U.S. House of Representatives impeachment proceeding where Pres. Trump was denied more than a half dozen rights common to all citizens. No crime was alleged or proven required by the Co…

Donald Trump promised to eliminate the debt during his campaign. Trump’s budgets are adding $5.088 trillion to the debt in his first term. That’s a 30 percent increase from the end of Obama’s last budget. If re-elected, Trump plans to add $9.1 trillion more.

Yes, I watched the hearings. And read opinions by professionals and regular people. If freedom of speech makes you uncomfortable, maybe you need to consider why.

Whoa. We should get back on point. Sara Straw and Stan Ivie (Reaper, Dec. 12, p3A) continue to press for impeachment of Pres. Trump even though no crime has been alleged or proven. (U.S. Constitution Art. I, Sec. 4) Only the whistle blower (hereafter, w b) knows of the crime, if there was a …

Once upon a time in a far, faraway land there lived a happy and productive people, the Naciremas. They were a proud and self-righteous people whose two core values were hard work and saving cookies. They stored all of their cookies in a super large cookie jar. The Naciremas had developed an …

It has become clear that the president has violated his oath of office by withholding military aid already approved by congress, from a foreign power, until they help in the upcoming election. Trump also obstructed justice by preventing subpoenaed witnesses from appearing at the hearings. Tr…

It’s so disheartening to read the contentions in these opinyon pages. It breaks my heart to have the malice that is so popular in our national media, government, and society, right here in our own midst. I would hope that especially this time of year, when we celebrate the birth of He who es…

It was a special opportunity for us a few days ago to watch two vintage fighter jets come into town for fuel. It was a beautiful sight as they did a “fly by.” It lets you appreciate the power and performance that fighter jets have.

I watched hours of the impeachment hearings, I wonder if any others in the area did? When Nixon was impeached, it was important to the people of the United States that their president was engaged in criminal activity to assure his re-election. Maybe Americans were more patriotic back then, o…

Sara Straw, Reaper, Nov. 14, p. 3A, was needlessly concerned that “Trump is having a bad week,” due to six hours of impeachment hearing yesterday. My opinion is that Pres. Trump could not have a better day, Brief points are (1) no crime was alleged, (2) no whistle blower appeared, (3) all ev…

A huge shout-out for those involved in the fifth grade Veterans Patriotic Program. I have loved going to this school activity for many years. Thanks to all who made it possible – students, teachers, parents, and our local veterans, police, EMTs and others, and this year to a very generous an…
