Letters to the Editor
In the Feb. 21 editorial "Budget deadline could be problem," the first sentence reads, "The state's budget mess just keeps getting worser and worser." It appears the writer of this sentence requires some remedial training in grammar.
My English teacher (Miss Heath) would give a big "F" for this editorial.
No wonder our young people say "you know" all the time.
I write in response to the Feb. 16 article, "Bill sent to Trump allowing mentally ill to buy firearms."
This article amounts to "alternative facts," except for the last two paragraphs many people probably did not read.
Who are the 75,000 people who would have been prevented from owning firearms?
What an inspiring story about Carol Wock's transition to organic farming and her donation of organic farmland to Prairie Rivers Network (Feb. 13, "Her family motto: 'Farming without harming'").
The amount of hard work and deep thinking that Carol has put into her farming practices are staggering ... and to think she's putting all of this in motion at the age of 78.
Addiction. Author David Sheff has recently visited C-U. Even though I missed his talk, I feel I know him after reading his book "Beautiful Boy." It is the brutally frank, wonderfully insightful story of a family consumed by an addicted son.
Rodney Davis's tele-town hall was disappointing and surprising in many different ways. Most seriously, the format did not allow for constructive dialogue between his and his constituents. Rather, it gave Davis an opportunity to regurgitate his talking points without question or challenge.
