    Last Word on guns, Oct. 11

    Gun control If it isn't the right time, as Republicans are saying about discussing some limits on guns in the U.S., then when is the right time? We discuss changes in laws after a drunk driver kills someone. We discuss sprinklers in buildings after a fatal fire. So why not discuss protecting innocent...

            Last word on empty storefronts, Sept. 23

            Empty storefronts In response to “Empty storefronts:” The caller should be reminded that once the building is built, the city and county don’t care whether it’s occupied, just as long as the taxes are paid on it.
