Letter: ‘Mr. Wonderful’ act unappealing at home, abroad

‘Mr. Wonderful’ act unappealing at home, abroad Re: Vera Cole letter, Press, Nov. 14 Vera Cole has every right to be deeply concerned with the obfuscation of the       “transparent” Obama administration. She outlines the snake oil tactics orchestrated by M.I.T. professor Jonathan Gruber who blithely admitted that the ACA (Obamacare) was purposely… Continue Reading

No doubt remaining about media bias

Re: Gruber, ACA revelation This week proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that the so-called mainstream “news” media will go to any length to protect the Democratic Party and its programs. Thanks only to Internet watchdogs, several video clips have been discovered showing one of the chief architects of Obamacare, M.I.T. Professor Jonathan Gruber… Continue Reading

Letter: Meaning of the midterm election

Meaning of the midterm election Re: Deliver what was promised The ink wasn’t dry on the reports from the Nov. 4 midterm election when the pundits in the so-called “news” media took up damage control to explain to us lackwits the “meaning” of the Republican victory, conforming as they do with every Republican win to… Continue Reading

Making less sense

Re: Fluoride choice? The more I think about fluoridation of our municipal water supply the less sense it makes to me. From a practical perspective just consider what tiny percentage of total water usage is actually consumed. For that which is consumed, I suspect uniform application to the teeth would be extremely inefficient. Additionally, I… Continue Reading

Letter: ‘Pen and ballot!’

‘Pen and ballot!’ Re: Thanks to Vets President Barack Obama boasted, “I have a phone and a pen.” Many thanks to our soldiers who fought in wars and who gave their lives. We can proudly say, “I have a pen and a ballot!” Evelyn B. Thompson Sheridan Continue Reading

Letter: State majority, GOP; Wyoming voters informed

State majority, GOP; Wyoming voters informed Re: Anderson letter, Press, Oct. 31 Mr. Anderson decries his perceived imbalance in our elected officials. He sees a majority of Republican lawmakers and politicians because a majority of Wyoming voters are registered Republicans. Imagine that! Oh, I get the point of diversity of thought all right and agree… Continue Reading

Vote for our father

Re: Jennings support We are Mark Jennings’ daughters and we would like to take a few moments to express our thoughts on why our father is the choice for House District 30. From the time we were young, our father has always taught us that honesty and integrity should be guiding principles in our lives.… Continue Reading

Government overreach; return to Constitution

Re: Supports Jennings We are recommending Mark Jennings for election to House District 30. We have enjoyed Jennings’ entire family for the past five years. We have spent a lot of time together playing dominoes and enjoying the Bighorn mountains. Most of our time together involves food. We’ve been listening to his comments on where… Continue Reading

Letter: Fluoride decision in Nov. 4 election

Fluoride decision in Nov. 4 election Re: Forum at Sheridan College For those of you who were unable to attend the forum at Sheridan College and are interested in the fluoride issue for Sheridan water, I am writing my opinion on the six candidates running for City Council and their positions as stated that evening.… Continue Reading

Clean break from current administration

Re: Vote Ceballos for superintendent of public instruction As a school board trustee, I have found the conflicts between the governor, the current superintendent of public instruction and the Legislature to be a huge distraction. Among the two candidates for superintendent of public instruction in this election cycle, one offers a fresh start and one… Continue Reading

Letter: Don’t use Canada attack to assault liberties

Re: Terrorist threat prompts  gun-restriction advocates Wednesday, a tragic terrorist attack occurred at, and near, the Canadian Parliament building in Ottawa. At least one, unarmed, Canadian solder was murdered in the attack. Let’s see how long it takes before our corrupt, disreputable politicians start whining for more gun controls, and other loss of our liberties,… Continue Reading

Letter: Support for Dayton projects appreciated

Re: Community hall, chili cook-off Small town America is alive and well. The Dayton School Benefit Club put on a chili cook-off and dinner/dance this past Saturday. We are in need of a new roof for the Dayton Community Hall, which is a lovely historic building built during the Depression as a Works Progress Administration… Continue Reading

Letter: Protect our Second Amendment

Re: Vote Mark Jennings Who could miss the stories about gun control across the nation? For instance, ex-New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is funneling some of his billions of dollars into states to pass gun control laws. Surprisingly, some even here in Wyoming would choose to limit guns. Some feel if they don’t have… Continue Reading

Letter: Vote Val Burgess

Re: House District 30 I am writing in support of Val Burgess as a write-in and independent candidate for House District 30. She is my friend and I would like you to know her as I know her. We got reacquainted years ago when I attended one of her presentations on American prisoners of war,… Continue Reading
