Thanks-Living

How would you fill in the following sentence? "This past week I have been most concerned about _____________." Most of us have been wrapped up in our own worlds, worrying about food, clothes, cars, housing, or insurance.

Crazy campaign coverage

Wow! If you aren't saturated with news of the presidential campaign, you've been living in a cave.

That's not to say TV news nets (broadcast and cable) were not prepared to cover this election, but the amount of air-time devoted to the campaigns is directly related to the viewers' interest.

Letter to the editor... Respect my rights

Dear Editor: During this election year, I have often been overwhelmed with a sense of pride and gratitude at being an American. I was born here - I didn't have to make the difficult choice of leaving country and kin and have to resettle in a new place. I have even had the good fortune of living in the same area for over 30 years.
