Opinion

It's a more recent term in the layman's dictionary. When people hear the term "Ridesharing", they tend to think of Uber and Lyft. But Ridesharing is basically another form of Carpooling, but also applies to Bikes, Vans, and even Electric Scooters, and can also be done professionally for money. To participate in a Ridesharing Program, you need a Credit Card, a Debit Card, a Paypal or other E-Payment system account, a smart phone, or other portable device capable of connecting to the internet.

It's not news, but you can't get all you can eat chitterlings in Texas

By Valerie Close, Editor · November 23rd, 2020
If you've never been to Texas let me tell you a bit about H E B grocery stores. They are THE grocery store in Texas. Like everything they are huge. I'd guess they are probably the size of a Sam's Club, with mostly groceries in them. Like everywhere else, the stores are limiting disinfectants, miscelleaneous cleaning supplies, toilet paper and other things.

Our Patriotic Duty

By Valerie Close, Editor · November 4th, 2020
I spent Tuesday working at the polls in one of the most beautiful settings in the county, the courthouse. I worked alongside 4 other great people in the Eden, Harrison, Taylor Precinct. It's always fun to see my neighbors and friends come through the line. We had a bit of a treat with a delivery of donuts early on in the morning from a little gal that decided her mission was to spread a little happiness and cheer via some carb loaded sweetness.

Letter to the Editor: Thanks to Greenfield and Finkenauer

By Vinton Today · October 26th, 2020
Dear Editor, We had the privilege today, Sunday, October 25th, of hosting Senate candidate Teresa Greenfield, at our farm to view the damage from the August 10th derecho. We also need to acknowledge Congresswoman Abby Finkenauer who visited our farm last Monday. Knowing that we had already voted for them by absentee ballot, they still insisted with our consent to see how we and our rural neighbors were recovering and if they could be of any assistance.

Letter to the Editor: Open letter to President of UNI

By Vinton Today · October 23rd, 2020
Dear Mr Nook,In reference to the following article: https://theiowastandard.com/uni-student-government-denies-students-for-life-group-one-member-calls-it-a-hate-group/As a transplant to Iowa from Ontario, where I was both raised and educated, I am deeply disturbed to learn that the University of Northern Iowa's student government has forbidden the formation of a pro-life student group to operate on campus.

Dear EditorI have been following the lead-up to the 2020 election and there are some things that have become apparent among our local candidates running for statehouse. While many in our society are becoming polarized in their political views I still feel there are some core values and attributes that we can all agree on when deciding our elected officials.

Just a Speck

By Valerie Close, Editor · October 13th, 2020
I am one of the lucky few that live outside the city limits. I live down a country road where chances are if you've lived here long enough, you'll hit a deer, or a deer will hit you. Don't laugh, I was t-boned by one. The downside is that you go through tires more frequently than the rest of the population, which reminds me I need to make another trip to John's Tire before winter hits.
