To the editor: Reading about the group of Three Rivers residents who attended the Jan. 21 Women’s March on Washington leads me to understand that among the participants in that function were well educated professional individuals who have a deep concern for and grasp of the issues which spurred...
Since my retirement, I’ve found myself busier than I was when I was punching a time clock. This is common among many retirees. I’d like to think of myself as a professional volunteer, but that could be looked at as an oxymoron, because professionals get paid for their time, and the only pay a...
To the editor: I just recently received a copy of all the committee assignments for our new elected county commissioners. One committee especially caught my eye. Ad Hoc Committee stands for Roads Committee. I was really surprised to see three elected county commissioners’ names on it. As we all...

To the majority of you, please take a moment and remind those closest to you just how much they mean to you. If you’re a hugger like I am, you...

To the editor: The way the Democrats are acting is totally uncalled for. It seems so childish to me. If there are any senators or others whom I may have voted for in the past they surely will not get any more votes!! You have a job to do. We have a new president who is doing a job but you don’t...
To the editor: Albert Einstein said insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Some of the examples of this are: 1. Giving CEOs more money so they can invest in more industry. If they were doing this they would not be so rich. 2. Calling drug addiction...
