    Sequestration: Let’s take a
    closer look

        You would think that the world is going to come to an end if we allow Sequestration to happen, right? … This big idea of President Obama called Sequestration was supposed to show his commitment to making cuts in spending someplace down the road if the loyal opposition  Republicans did not join him in making the hard choices in the “right” spending cuts and revenue increases on the ugly rich folks who make over $250,000.

    Personally
    perplexed

        I was personally puzzled and perplexed with the “Guest Editorial” in your paper dated Feb. 13, 2013, when I read that the Pope was “the most peripatetic prelate in recent history” due to the pace he maintained.

    Knights in
    shining armor

        On Friday morning, February 1, I had an unfortunate event when all the lug nuts on one of the front wheels of my Jeep decided to “shear off” while on my way to work.  Needless to say, thank God I was on a secondary road driving at a slow speed.
        No sooner than I started to dial the number for a tow truck, a fellow stopped to assist me, and identified himself as George.  He said to give him 10 minutes -- that he’d send a couple guys to assist me.

    Prepare to share

        The holiday season of Christmas spending is truly out of hand.
        Families are over-extending themselves for years to come by “maxing out” numerous credit cards for that one day of celebration. Children are being over-showered with too many material gifts that to some are not really appreciated.

    Journey of
    discovery

        I’ll start out by admitting that I no longer buy your newspaper; I no longer read any print media as it overwhelmingly promotes the progressive agenda, but since you sent me a free one I read it.
