    Not a debate I do not usually attend the candidate night debates. Now I know why. After attending the event, sponsored by The Courier-Gazette for representatives of the two local districts, I was disappointed in the fashion by which the so-called debates were designed and executed.

    Poor judgement I was immediately outraged by the poor judgement made by News Director Daniel Dunkle and The Courier-Gazette for locating “Man accused of stealing sign, cutting down sunflower” top front page of Thursday’s Courier Gazette.

    Fact-free column Perhaps we might examine some real facts from the foundational sources of information? Mr. Reichard’s opening claim that the $14,387 figure, “each illegal immigrant household costs U.S. taxpayers in government benefits and services”, “…it’s a lie”, is itself a lie. The $14,387 estimate comes from the following Heritage Foundation report on the costs of illegal immigration: ~ It is not hard to …

    Takes the challenge Over the last couple of weeks you’ve made reference to folks who write to disagree with you but don’t care to be on the record.

    Unfortunate situation Recently, the Rockland Congregational Church received extensive news coverage and comment regarding a family of two adults and three children found living on property owned by the church.

    Unique position Would you say that buying a newspaper put Reade Brower in a unique position?
