Letter: Remembering a good man
Once in a while obituaries read like a background check for sainthood, others are merely a death notice. Here is my attempt to tell you about a man I knew as Big Wayne, much more than a born-on-and-died date. Being a few years younger, I remember him as Olivia's heavyweight wrestler...

Letter: Not a win for this taxpayer
As the top story in the Sept. 23 paper states, "Big win for local taxpayers." Did anyone do the math on what the percentage of savings stated for the wastewater treatment plan? It is not even a 1 percent savings. Why do they call that a big win? Who are they trying to fool? And who...

Letter: Golden Oval's empty promises
Well, we are well into September, and I and the other former owners of Golden Oval are wondering. First, we wonder about the history of "value-added." Remember, it was a big buzz-phrase that showed up in the 1980s, hung around through the '90s, then hung it up not long ago. There...
