Can’t we do something?
That’s our question. We don’t have answers, just the question.
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.
On March 31 of this year I wrote a letter to the editor regarding the comments of the CEO of the International Market Centers, Bob Maricich.
You might have seen in the past, comments from this writer favoring the network and programing of Public Radio and this is by no means a retraction of previous appraisals.

The case of former Mayor Bernita Sims is a racial verdict. Six months house arrest for a worthless check? She is a first-time offender. I've seen people with charges more serious get lesser punishment.

Here it comes! Here it comes! Get ready! Election season is upon us!
The right wing conservatives who now control the Republican Party, in my opinion, seem to have a longing for the “good old days.” They believe the future of the USA lies in the past. I call it “Back To The Future” politics.
I think I’m partial to the frog.
