Now of this would be possible without the tireless effort … 0

Letter: Staying informed

Wednesday, March 25, 2015

Thanks much to The Recorder for reminding me that Sunshine Week has arrived. I am usually aware this First Amendment celebration is in the offing to remind and re-educate all of us about how critical it is that we have access to information about our government.

Letter: Change and our future

Tuesday, March 10, 2015

Between the histrionics of global warming activists and the myopia of climate-change deniers, the truth withers like an abandoned orphan somewhere in between. Coal, oil and natural gas are organic materials produced by living organisms. Long ago, species arose and spread across the Earth by elaborating novel, complex … 0

Letter: Special donation

Sunday, March 8, 2015

I would like to add one more twist to the ongoing story of Adams Donuts. A few weeks before Carrie Brown learned about her “hood problem,” I approached her for a donation to our Green Eggs & Ham brunch, a benefit for our sixth grade’s trip to New … 0
