Letter: Protect our Second Amendment

Re: Vote Mark Jennings Who could miss the stories about gun control across the nation?

City leaders force ‘pox,’ tyranny

Re: Flouridation project By all means, we should keep Rich Adriaens in place as the city’s new chief of staff to assist the mayor with running Sheridan.  Apparently, the mayor feels incompetent for running the city’s affairs if he does not understand that no sitting city council can commit or obligate any future city council… Continue Reading
