Since this piece is in the 'Opinion' section, I know Mr. Breland will respect me offering my own. Towards the middle of the third paragraph,...

Letter to the Editor: Third party candidates are candidates too

November 4, 2010


Filed under Letters to the Editor, Opinion

To the editor: I was disappointed to see that your "Election day survival kit" included descriptions of only the Democrat and Republican candidates in each race. So-called third-party candidates deserve an equal voice. In particular, the Libertarian Party has consistently been one of the most prominent...

Letter to the Editor: Noise from Village loudspeakers makes studying difficult for Village residents

October 14, 2010


Filed under Letters to the Editor, Opinion
