Re: Rumsfeld

Rummy is doing a good job regardless of the liberal blathering. I have been through a few wars and conflicts and don't see anything much to complain about by comparison. Anan should be hounded to the point where he will begin to do what we want him to do, and not a centimeter further. Better the dev...

Re: Parental Snooping Illegal???

You won't get any arguement from me. Cops need to act on whatever information they can get, but the issue here was that the press played this for something that it was not. The press accounts indicated that parents had no right to listen in on the telephone conversations of their minor children. The...

Re: Parental Snooping Illegal???

Once again we have a case that is largely nothing but media hype. The real issue here is that the mother was eavesdropping on a conversation between her daughter and the boyfriend during which the boyfriend admitted he had done something illegal. The mother reported it to police. Unfortunately, her ...

Re: Salvation Army Bell Ringers

The real problem here has to do with rights as they are interpreted by the courts. What is being argued is the right of a shopkeeper to determine which charities are allowed to solicit on his/her property. Most shopkeepers (even Walmart) are in the business of making money, not spending it defending...

Re: School Lunch

Deb Richardson said it very well. It is time that we all got out of our adversarial roles and started to support the common effort to achieve good behavior in school. This really is a "no-brainer" in my opinion.

Re: School Lunch

The really key issue here is not what junior has for lunch. The real issue is the obvious lack of parental support for educator's efforts to improve performance and behavior. When I was a lad, the most effective punishment that a teacher could offer were the simple words, "I am going to call yo...

Re: Lincoln County Humane Society

Nugget is absolutely right. Too often when pets are allowed to run loose and cause all kinds of mayhem people blame the pet instead of the owner. The dog or cat winds up getting killed or maimed while the owner, who is the real culprit, gets off completely. If I had a dime for everyone I have heard ...

Re: Lincoln County Humane Society

I have to agree with Old Scout. Every time I have been down at the shelter dropping off dog food donations I have seen a number of cats at the shelter. If the shelter is to continue serving cats at the expense of the tax payer then they should be licensed the same as dogs. This really seems like a &...

Re: John Kerry & John Edwards enjoy attacking family and

I agree with Fushia. Kerry will do and say anything to win an election. This explains why it is impossible to nail him down on any issue. His position simply changes depending on what he thinks the people he is in front of want to hear. As a candidate for president, I think he is pitiful. As far as ...

Tobin's editorial was well written and adequately supported by the facts. In any case, Kerry threw the medals away so they must have meant nothing to him at all. I suspect that most people know why they meant nothing to him. Good job Larry.

Just a note to say thanks to all the people who worked so hard to get the street finished up over by Charlies. The lights are not yet on but everything really looks great over there. The city of Tomahawk can be proud of this effort.
