Your View: Should government require shots for children?

I don't think that adults riding in cars should be required to wear seat belts, but I don't have much of a problem with the government requiring children to wear seat belts.

Your View: Obama hasn’t made America better

Carl Routh wanted to remind us on Aug. 18 (“Six years of Obama has made us better”)   of all the good things Obama has done, and how he has made our country so much better.

Your View: Guest Column - Voter ID. Border control. Balanced budget. Why bother?

Gary Parker's commentary in Your View Sept. 17 lambasts those mean old Republicans for their stance on voter ID laws. How shameful!

Clarence Page: Holder's legacy: Strong on civil rights, not so much on civil liberties

Departing Attorney General Eric Holder deserves cheers for his stance on civil rights, in my view, but bemused jeers for his assaults on civil liberties.

Joe Gandelman: Too ‘civilized’ to defeat ISIS?

Does the "civilized" world have what it takes to defeat the self-declared Islamic State, otherwise known as ISIS?

Our View: How do we prevent these deaths?

Can’t we do something?
That’s our question. We don’t have answers, just the question.

Your View: A mayor-council government could handle job

Most of us had to give up too soon our fantasies about Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny. It is touching that a man of Tom Terrell's age and experience still believes that city managers are apolitical.
