LETTER: Farmers will do a better job than can-kicking politicians

Thursday, January 10, 2013

Editor: Cowboys and business people can clearly explain how the “cow ate the cabbage.” They can explain how she ate it, and where she spit the seeds.

Community needs to unite to stop animal abuse

Thursday, December 6, 2012

Editor Why is it that in our society, when abuse occurs, the first thought that comes to mind is “What did the victim do to deserve it?” In the case of rape, we ask what was the woman wearing? In the case of child abuse, what did the child do to push the adult to […]

Our children will be saddled with debt incurred from all […]
