A thought about wolves

To the editor:So, let me get this straight;1. The wolves (who each have a name) have been studied for 56 years, but 3 more years of study are needed to figure them out.2.

Time to get off the wacko train

To the editor:I recently found a CD on my car windshield that spews some very idiotic conspiracy lunacy about the Sandy Creek shootings.
