Reading my Thoughts: Runaways

I've watched with a bit of a chuckle, the state representatives from Texas. The group decided that it would be a good idea to take off to Washington D.C. so that they could protest a bill in the Texas Statehouse. You know, like the spouse does who DOESN'T want to talk about "it," whatever "it" is. They'd rather run away and hide rather than come up with a good debate on the topic.

Letter to the Editor: Sexual Harassment and the Border

Dear Editor:To those in the "so-called" news business -- being in New York is a long way from Iowa and its politics. What we see here is what the powerful are capable of. This travesty - harassment and abuse of women fits Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, others and now Andrew Cuomo. Where is the outrage of Democrat Women? Some have come forward. The question is will he be held accountable or be like Bill, hold on, deny, deny, deny until it goes away.

Letter to the Editor: Germ Warfare

Dear Editor, It has been common knowledge for years that all major developing countries have possessed the ability to conduct germ warfare. The Wuhan crisis is no exception. Was a virus created in the lab and deliberately leaked into the local wet markets for experimentation on the people of Wuhan? This is totally consistent with China's poor record on civil rights and its complete lack of concern for all of the Chinese people.

Reading my mind: Leadership

While local news is the focus of Vinton Today, I also keep an eye on what's happening around the nation, especially in politics. I don't know why it fascinates me as it does but it does. And usually, it disgusts me.When Andrew Cumo was accused this week of sexual harassment by several women, it's sad to say that I didn't even have a reaction. Why? Because it's normal to hear about it all the time with politicians.

Letter to the Editor: Property Rights

Dear Editor,I see the City once again entered private property and destroyed personal property. I also noticed that a trampoline and a kayak were left and later a boat that was removed during the abatement, that was full of "stuff" was returned minus the "stuff".Does anyone see this as a problem?Nosing around, because it is easy in "V town", people love to talk.

Letter to the Editor: Answer to response questions

This Q was submitted July 16. I did not see it until this day July 26.Thus:Stiegelmeyer Failed to answer a simple question and that is shouldn't it be easy to vote? Again, we had the most successful elections ever and no v9ter fraud. Why the push to make voting more restrictive? Please answer that one! You're watching too much Fox News. Let logic be your guide.

Saying Goodbye

I had already decided that I wasn't going to say very much more, but when my heart is so full, it kinda squishes out onto my keyboard. If I deem it "good enough" you get to read it. These past 7 weeks have been a marathon of trying to hurry and squeeze every last memory out of a man that we knew we were about to lose. The guy that for the most part was quiet.

Letter the Editor: What is CRT?

Editor: A question for our many readers:Thus; when was the first time you heard of "Critical Race Theory"? For me, it was early this year. I had not ever heard of this concept before, in fact, I do not believe I have ever held any "discrimination" thought or theory ever. Do I discriminate based on race - no? I discriminate based on the character and integrity of the individual.

Letter to the Editor: Rebuttal-Voting Rights

Dear Editor, I find it very interesting that Gould and Braden bring up objections that have no legitimacy. Name one person who has been denied their legal right to vote. I brought up two items that seem to have much contention that is an ID and requiring a person to vote in the precinct where they are registered. Again you have not discussed the issues I raised.
