I am concerned about the negative ads against Al Juhnke. I was at a meeting with Claire, his wife, when their daughter called. She and her friends had been listening to a local radio station when one of those negative ads came on. Her friends told her that they would not vote for...

Letter: Palin's lack of experience
I write because I am a woman, and Hillary Clinton supporter. Yet, Sarah Palin herself criticized Clinton for complaining about sexism: "When I hear a statement like that coming from a woman candidate with any kind of perceived whine about that excess criticism ... I think, man, that...
