The County Jail

To the editor: Vernon LeBlanc’s letter Wednesday past regarding the answer to building a new County Jail is so logical it hurts e.g. leave the current facilities in place and use the jail as a holding tank to house a prisoner until he is sentenced and then ship him to a rebuilt Camp Kitwin ...

Summary of Climate Change

To the editor: Oil and gas are made of carbon-based molecules. When they are burned (in our car engines or power plants) they turn into heat, water, and carbon dioxide. This is called a combustion reaction, and is often taught in chemistry class. This means that every gallon of oil and gas ...

Being deaf, having deaf pride

Successful Copper Bowl

Jail plan needs to be cheaper

Check with NOAA on weather

To the editor: I read with sadness an Oct. 26 Letter to the Editor concerning the science behind global warming. The letter writer is a nonbeliever of the majority of scientific fact that proves human activities do increase the amount of heat-trapping greenhouse gases (like carbon dioxide) in ...

See who I truly am

We don’t worship for His benefit

To the editor: My July 24 letter proving that God is not cruel was contradicted by an August writer who said that most pagans were good and none were extremely evil. Not even Adolf Hitler? Hitler, who said he was a pagan, wanted to abolish Christianity (because of its Jewish origins) and ...

Who counts?

To the editor: After watching the umpteenth “Non-24” ad on TV, I wondered who had the millions of dollars to buy thousands of TV ads to target the 100,000 Americans who are blind and the subset of them that struggle with daytime drowsiness. The answer is a company called Vanda ...
