    Trump needs to ‘drain the swamp’
    Editor:

    It appears that our national government resembles a bunch of naughty boys who absolutely cannot have anyone except another naughty boy/girl as president possessing all the power it represents.

  • Sears failed to keep up with the times

    In 1973, Sears was the premier retailer in the U.S. It scoffed at upstarts Kmart and Walmart, calling them discounters as opposed to what Sears men called legitimate retailers. The company’s headquarters was housed on Chicago’s westside in a very tough neighborhood.

    On consistent alert for wildfires
    Editor:

    Wonder why we had a snowstorm?
    Cloud-seeding is over for the season. Cloud-seeding runs from November to the end of March. Now if we are lucky this year, maybe we will get some snow for a month or so to regenerate our wells and prevent some of our fires. I doubt that our insurance will be lowered though.

  • Closed dog park a victim of its success

    It never seemed like the rules were that important to a lot of people who used the Evergreen Bark Park. Dog waste was routinely left and not picked up.  Some people put the waste into plastic bags and then left the bags on the ground. When the parking lots were full, people routinely parked along the street, often right next to no parking signs. Other people didn’t use leashes when they took their dogs from their cars to the designated off-leash areas.

    No more prescribed burns
    Editor:

    Regarding the five-year anniversary article on the Lower North Fork Fire: Nothing pro or con on prescribed burns was said. In my opinion, there ought to be a law against prescribed burns.
    Three people would still be alive and 23 houses still lived in off Kuehster Road near Conifer. I have lived down on Foxton Road for the past 50-plus years, building our home in 1964.
    Down with prescribed burns forever!
