  • When close our ears, we close our minds

    Just this week I was browsing my facebook profile and catching up with what’s going on in friends’ lives like I often do and noticed a startling trend of people unfriending those with different political or religious views.

    My favorite part of any newspaper is the editorial section. We call ours the Opinion page. It’s the most critical component of a local newpaper, in my opinion.

    As I drove into town it was obvious that those of us on the ridge got quite a bit more snow than the rest of you. I’m sorry you missed it.
