Deception

I decided to get away from politics this week. I just saw a picture of two McCormick’s black pepper containers, exactly the same size, along a smaller size Watkins black pepper container. One of the McCormick’s cans said the contents were 8 oz. The other McCormick’s can said the contents were 6 oz. The Watkins

Middleton College Protest

Editor: Charles Murray was invited by Middleton College’s American Enterprise Institute to discuss his book “Coming Apart.” Hundreds of students protested the speech of the conservative speaker and became violent, attacking a professor, shoving members of the group and jumping on and beating against a car they were trying to leave in. Police were called

A big thank you

Editor: A recent illness forced me into the hospital and subsequent two week stay in the local nursing home for rehabilitation. I would like to commend Dr Casey and the staff at Cedar County Memorial Hospital for the excellent care that was given to me. My subsequent stay at Community Springs Nursing Home Facility was

March 4 Trump

Editor: I went to the March 4 Trump event at Jefferson City; though it was not as well-attended as I thought it might be, it was pretty interesting seeing different faces from around the state.

El Dorado Springs City Library became part of Cedar County Library system in

All I want to see…

Editor: It is interesting to sit back and watch a political party implode. Since that upstart, Donald Trump, had the audacity to steal the Presidency away from our Hillary and now sit in the Oval Office and issue these illegal mandates to try and take away our Hero’s legacy, it just burns us up. We

Personal is different

Editor: I find it amusing to see (from a video clip on the internet) illegal immigrant supporters being asked questions if they will let these immigrants into their homes, give them food and make sure they are well off. You can only guess what the huge majority say: don’t have enough space, can’t afford it,

Do something

Editor: Why is it we can’t get rid of this rampage we call meth? The ones that use it are very self-centered and most times unable to tell the truth. I know that because I have a family member and his wife that has it very bad. In fact, the last part of 2016, they
