Letter to The Editor ~Raymond H. Pachta

November 21, 2014

Because of what I write I realize I may be labeled a fanatic, yet for those of common sense, abiding by just the natural law, and especially for those who accept the Scriptures as God’s revelation, I would like to clarify what is happening. I honestly believe that our beloved country faces greater peril than […]

About a year ago, at a Costco warehouse in California, quite a hullabaloo was started when a pastor, while walking through the book department, discovered that the bibles were being displayed in the “fiction” section. The pastor apparently tweeted and twittered his discovery, and the result was a national news story. I’m sure that boycotts […]

And I Thought I Liked You

November 21, 2014

A comment by Jason Parks Normally, I try to let things like this go, but sometimes political rhetoric is so offensive and off-base that it simply cannot go unchecked. I, for one, am so very tired of the “if you disagree with me you must hate me” line of malarkey. Contrary to the proponents of […]

Playing With a Full Deck

November 12, 2014

I barely remember how I played solitaire before computers. But I do know one thing; I played it a lot less. If I was able to locate a deck of cards at all – and there was no guarantee of that – I had to count to make sure they were all there. Often, they […]

Party Like It’s 1995

November 12, 2014

A comment by Erik Shupe Let’s hope history repeats itself. In 1995, a situation similar to what we will see in 2015 existed as Republicans gained control of both houses of Congress, while the Democrats controlled the presidency. What followed over the next five years was one of the greatest reductions in our national deficit […]

I am appalled by the sentence convicted felon Lewis Grider received from Saline County Judge Jared Johnson. Grider hit bicyclist Gail Kline, Delphos, with his vehicle and left her to die on May 31, 2013 in a county road ditch west of Salina. First, my condolences to Gail Kline’s family. I didn’t know Gail or […]

It never ceases to amaze me the kindness, generosity, and support this community can show someone. Last week I was visiting with someone regarding the Methodist Church chicken dinner that was served on Wednesday. I asked this person if dinners were delivered if you could not come to the church for the dinner as I […]

Another election is just around the corner. People feel strongly about them. This one is particularly significant. Incumbents in all major statewide offices in Kansas are feeling the pressure. It is time to have people representing Kansas rather than pursuing their own personal agendas and goals. Paul Davis and Jill Docking are running for Governor […]

And It Begins

October 29, 2014

A comment by John Wilson We have a Republican candidate from Chicago while voting for himself, realizing his vote was being transferred to his Democratic opponent by the touch-screen computer he was using. According to the candidate, only after several attempts was he able to figure out if he hit the box in the lower […]

The Pitfalls of Working at Home

October 29, 2014

By Dorthy Rosby By day, I work in a nice office with a lot of friendly people for a very fine nonprofit organization. It’s a respectable job, though I don’t mean to imply that I am. By night – and early morning, weekend, and holiday – I’m a writer. That means that while responsible people […]
