Let’s become better thinkers In the aftermath of a disorderly mob “storming” the U.S. Capitol after weeks of incitement by President Trump, Alyssa Farah, former White House Director of Strategic Communication said, in two separate interviews, that Trump had lied about the election being stolen....
Dear Editor, I am concerned about the plan to use a lot of herbicides to restore Stewart Park. Stewart Park is a popular place for many people to hike and swim, including families with  young children. Herbicides are not only toxic to weeds, but also to people and animals. I don’t want to be...
