I read Craig Katz’s letter criticizing Republicans in Congress for not voting for the Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act. He didn’t say why they voted as they did, so I Googled the text of the legislation and read the bill. I’m surprised anyone actually voted for it. Though the Dems certainly did....
In response to the letter by Craig Katz on June 16. Consider all these situations before you vote next fall: In the last 18 months… How many young lives have been lost to fentanyl overdoses due to the “open” southern border? How many adults and children have died trying to illegally enter the...
While I was happy to see the results of the first month of the FOCUS ON ENERGY Save to Give Challenge in the Mt. Horeb Mail, I was disappointed by the low number of participating households and businesses. When this program was first promoted, I really loved the incentive that was offered. We could...
Finally, warm weather is here. This year the waiting period between winter and spring was a bit more challenging. We kept waiting for the temps to get beyond 60 degrees so we can start planting our flowers and vegetables and guess what? Suddenly it was 80-90 degrees……we must have prayed a little...
