Last Update Tuesday, November 24th, 2020

I am responding to the Daily Courier's Nov. 18 front-page story headlined, "Commissioners fighting governor's freeze." I called the commissioners' office the next morning to thank them for taking a stand on behalf of the citizens of Josephine County and local businesses. It's time to back our commissioners.

China's communists will take advantage of Biden
In his letter of Nov. 11, Randy Cort was 100% correct with the list of winners a Biden presidency will produce. The Chinese Community Party appropriately topped the list. It is far and away the biggest winner. Read More »

The return of political normalcy will be welcome
Donald Trump doesn't lose. Never has, never will. Any "setbacks" he has encountered have been caused by others, and they are always subject to retribution.

His fantasy claims of widespread voter fraud are being refuted at every turn, but they are still being pursued by his pathetic pull-toy "legal team" while being aided and abetted by spineless Republican politicians and cheered on by misguided supporters. Read More »

Courier is biased in its reporting on government
I read with interest the Courier's recent article about the DA not pursuing charges in the Courier's staff "attack" at Reinhart Volunteer Park. I've also noticed the video of the "attack" has been up on the Courier's website for at least six weeks — longer than most. Read More »

Not all local restaurants are following guidelines
Recently, I went to a local restaurant to pick up a takeout order. In light of our governor's recent guidelines to reduce the spread of the virus and deaths, I was surprised the restaurant was open for indoor dining and nearly full. But what was more of a surprise was seeing one of our county commissioners there. Read More »
