Today's Opinions

  • Support our mayor and his efforts

    To the editor:
    I strongly support Mayor Moses in his efforts to repair Water Works Abdallah Road. It has been unusable for quite some time but before its closure many motorists made good use of it.

  • “No indictment, no release"

    I have been fielding lots of questions and responding to all kinds of speculation as to why some arrests are not in the newspaper.
    It’s become a regular question from one individual on Wednesday afternoon when he buys his weekly paper to question why a specific arrest has not been published.
    Despite accusations to the contrary, my pockets are not being lined to keep someone’s name out of the paper.

  • Retierment Plan still tops state's list

    Long before this year’s legislative session began, my colleagues in the House and Senate and I knew the biggest task before us would be putting the retirement systems for state and local governments on firmer financial ground.
    These systems were doing extremely well as recently as a decade ago, but the country’s two recessions since then have hit them especially hard, much as they have shrunk the state’s budget, which has been cut $1.6 billion over the last five years.

  • Waterworks/Abdallah Road

    To the editor:
    I support Mayor Moses in his effort to repair the Waterworks/Abdallah Road. The road needs to be repaired and opened up.
    Highway 27 is so awful trying to get thru traffic. It takes a while. Also River Road is taken up by the traffic also.
    As for the by-pass I won’t be traveling on it. To me this is useless. At least Waterworks/Abdallah won’t be bumper to bumper with traffic.
    I support the Mayor all the way to repair the road soon as possible.
