Letter to editor – Countering the viewpoint of ‘climate-change alarmists’

To the editor,
For years, I have shared information meant to expose the lies told to the American people and the world regarding climate change. I believe strongly in caring for our environment and ensuring that our rich natural resources are preserved for generations to come. As policymakers, we should focus on common-sense legislation that protects the environment without hamstringing our state, national, and global economies.

Get it over with – Our view: County board should address pay for elected officers

And come the end of the year, commissioners know they face a looming problem. It’s easier to shove the issue to the side rather than deal with it out in the open. But there is a way around this political swamp, a way to avoid facing an issue most county boards would rather eschew.
