    Importance of attendance

    We have already finished approximately one quarter of the school year. This has been a school beginning that has been unlike any that I have ever experienced.

    Art Moore for Congress

    Perhaps this letter should really be addressed "Dear Republican," since what I would like to do is alert any local Republican voter, who doesn't already know it, that there is a sensible Republican alternative to Tea Party favorite Tom McClintock for the 4th Congressional District. Because of the...

    A community effort

    Last Saturday's Rummage Sale in the old location of The Sportsman's Den (Old Mill Shopping Center) came about as a 'grass roots' community event. As donations began to come in for the fire victims, it was apparent there was going to be an excess of donated items. We quickly discovered that our communities...
