Yes on motocross

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 8:00PM

Another Motocross? Yes. It seems there will always be people that no matter what is proposed will have nothing better to do than try and stop it. In this case, the motocross park outside of Granite Falls. To respond to a previous letter which makes a statement that from a five minute search on the internet there are 14 official racing facilities and 30 orv parks. Of course, if you found it on the internet its got to be true.

Thats a lot of tax dollars

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:59PM

A state study last year showed that 42 percent of newly incarcerated people in our correctional facilities had been there before and were repeat offenders. Between thousands of people recycling back into state prisons each year and the tough mandatory minimum sentencing laws, we are unable to build prisons as fast as we are filling them.

A great reflection

  • Aug 27, 2008 at 7:59PM

As the current cross country season for Arlington High School comes to a close, we would like to express our appreciation and respect for the coaches of the team. As parents, we have been involved with the cross-country team for the past six years. Both of our daughters have run for the team. The coaches instill a sense of camaraderie, dedication, fun and self-discipline that gives the students the drive to run farther than they ever thought they could and the motivation to continue pushing themselves. Weve seen these attributes spill into other areas of our daughters lives, such as academics, tennis, track and helping others.

Lip service

Its really interesting to see what government says and what it really does. Believe it or not, the two arent always the same. Lets forget, for the moment, things at the federal level. Instead lets concentrate on the local scene.

So, Hillary has made her stand on her vote to go to war, and will dig in her heels. And it amounts to the same old, sad old story of all the senators who voted yes with her: they relied on the president, and he misled them.
