A different twist

KEN ROBERTSON Canton Here’s a thought. If President Trump wants the Democrat-controlled House to fork over money for the border wall perhaps he’d have better luck if he referred to it as a foundation for solar panels. What Democrat would want to go on record as being opposed to ...

It’s time for new leadership in Cilnton County

Voters want facts, not fluff

Response to ‘I fear for my patients’
