When will the fat lady sing?

Editor: As I write this (just before noon on Monday, Dec. 19,) members of the electoral college are casting their votes. By the time you read this, it will all be over.

It ain’t over til the Fat Lady sings

Editor: One would think that after the failed attempt to overturn Donald Trump’s president-elect status with the recount effort, all would finally come to a closure. Well, that is just not the case.

Promises, promises

Just want to share

Editor: As I was reading our local Waterloo Courier back in 1992, I found this article to be pertinent for the time and now, 20 years later even more so. I would like to share this with you. “Cedar Falls – Cal Thomas says most journalists prey on people, but he’s a journalist who prays

Vote for Hillary

Editor: It is said that Ben Franklin told a woman, when asked in 1787: “Well, Doctor, what have we got—a Republic or a Monarchy?” He said: “A Republic, if you can keep it.” The United States has certainly almost not survived as a republic once, the Civil War, and possibly another time or two.
