The Village Activist does have a right to ask that laws be enforced, and coming from someone else perhaps the request might not have resulted in the public opposition to her request. Unfortunately, her actions over the years have alienated a vast majority of the village population, and fa…

Easy for you to say I "pull the racist card" but I think it is harder to honestly debate. Most of the people up in this neck of the woods have grown up in very white, very conservative, mostly middle class communities. They say they don't have a problem with other races, but let's be hone…

Brigid Martin should be ashamed of her lack of compassion regarding the people who need the Clearview or someplace similar to survive. And to Key, who commented earlier - you are making statements with no legitimate basis, perhaps you should actually read the article. This place is obviou…

I will respectfully disagree with what you have written. I think that an illegal with a license will be as likely, if not more, to obtain insurance than a legal resident. Getting in an accident – and having no insurance – will be a big red flag to DIS, and most will try to avoid that. Sec…

I guess I don't feel too strongly about this; it doesn't impact me in any way shape or form, my life will not be better or worse because of it. The business council supports it, and if it helps businesses of the state, then that's a good thing. The earlier comment made that it threatens o…

I think pie in the sky is one way of looking at it. Ridiculous is another. I am not a resident of Warren County, and while I occasional attend events at the Civic Center, I (and my town and county) do not benefit financially in the least. I buy tickets, and the money goes to the Center, s…

These folks only want to shut down these plants because they are opposed to waste to energy, opposition that in many cases is based on flawed, or made up science. Not saying that nothing comes out of the stacks, but they are meeting all the limits set by one of the strictest regulatory agenc…

Good managers plan for replacement of equipment and buildings by funding depreciation/replacement accounts. With local government, that doesn't happen because generally elected officials are more concerned with their current term of office and getting reelected, hence they just kick the can …

We need to be very cautious when using current standards of acceptable behavior as a measure of long ago actions. Evaluate actions against the time or era they occurred. Do we remove every mention of Thomas Jefferson from the University of Virginia because he owned slaves? The founding fathe…

I frequently disagree with Will's opinion pieces, but I'll back him on this one. ATVs have been a problem on my private property; while I don't mind snowmobiles, the ATVs tear up the ground, leaving ruts and leading to erosion. And let's face it, the fun with ATVs (yes, they are fun), usuall…
