To the editor: The groups most likely to be negatively affected by climate change are those below the age of 40. They should be the spokespeople for any movement that discourages the use of fossil fuels. On Dec. 14 in Niles there was a public hearing for residents to voice their support or...
I am sorry to admit that I am not much of a reader and never have been. I’ve always read just enough to get by. If I do read a book, it’s usually a biography. My problem is that I have difficulty concentrating on just one thing at a time. As a student, I could not have any distractions, such as...
The Democratic Party has a serious problem, and the name of that problem is identity politics. Ever since Donald Trump’s surprise win on Nov. 8, identity politics has been a hot topic of discussion in the media. Many conservative analysts blame identity politics for Hillary Clinton’s surprise loss...
As a toddler, taking a nap was something I didn’t enjoy doing. At this time in my life, taking an afternoon nap has become quite enjoyable. It has become something that is also quite necessary, unless I want to find myself falling asleep during Jeopardy. I’m an early riser, even without an alarm...

To the editor: How many of you remember grandma`s feather tick? Especially around the Christmas season with memorizing snow flakes coming down from the sky with the diamond like effect and sparkle as to call us to come outdoors to play. I don`t see many children outdoors playing in the snow, and...
To the editor: In 2003 a president lied to the American people. He said, without any evidence to back him up, that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction and at some undetermined time would likely use them to kill Americans. He said it was urgent that the U. S. attack Iraq to prevent this from...
To the editor: It is very upsetting that the new library director is so critical and disdainful of the Three Rivers library. If she thought it was so awful why did she come to work here? It is not “dreary and uninviting” to the people who actually use it. I do not want to go “wow” when I walk in...
