Kudos to these folks for having the moxy to call this out. The fortunate thing for these folks, and the others in the community doing good, is that the Leader always does a great job of recognizing and making newsworthy the positive things folks in the community are doing. There should be little nee...

Re: God help us, it's an election year.

I see what you guys are saying, but I don't necessarily know how much impact they really have on the entire process. The press make a big deal out of the Iowa Caucus and the New Hampshire primary, because there is a feeling that the results may be very 'typical' of the nationwide results since the v...
