Letters to the Editor

President Trump allows rich men to control the government. He caters to wealthy donors to the Republican Party.

He supports coal mining, even though burning coal dumps billions of tons of climate warming gasses into the atmosphere, which is wreaking havoc with our lives, causing killer heat waves,…

It is with utmost respect and deeply felt appreciation that we remember Capt. 2nd rank Vasili Arkhipov of the former Soviet Union who died August 19, 1998.

Unquestionably Capt. Arkhipov saved the lives of countless Americans, Soviets and Cubans and quite possibly avoided a nuclear war…

As a military veteran, I find myself at odds with my president over his idea of creating another branch of the military.

Actually, there needs to be a consolidation of the existing branches. Navy (sea), Army (land) and Air (space) should do it. There is already too much brass and bureaucracy in our…

There are lots of folks that think the National Rifle Association (NRA) is truly the ‘Evil Empire’ — the root cause of all gun problems in our country. They are, of course, absolutely wrong.

It is true that the NRA is a strong supporter of the Constitution, especially the 2nd…

Truth is defined as the actual fact or facts about a matter. Truth cannot be bought or sold. It is intangible, gender neutral, politically unaffiliated and racial identity free.

Objective truth is now up for debate, denial and deletion. Mistruths are being presented as “facts” by Trump,…

Chinese-owned Smithfield Foods operates huge hog farms in North Carolina and collects all that pig poop in open-air ponds.

Do they turn it into lawn fertilizer like the City of Milwaukee when it produces Milorganite? Hint: it rhymes with “No.” They don’t need to because they can…

Presidents have lied throughout history, so Trump's not the first. The difference is Trump's lies are a matter of national security.

You can't invite a foreign advisory to help you win an American presidential election. People need to stop acting like they don't know that Trump is the kind of…
