3 votes for Mr. Smith

Smith is a capable leader I have studied the race for county sheriff and researched the candidates thoroughly, because I know that it is important to choose the most prepared and the most qualified candidate to lead public safety in the county. I have to conclude that both of the major newspapers are correct. Justin Smith is the one and only candidate who is capable of leading the sheriff's department.

The Con

The Con

Dear Friends and Neighbors: Far be it from me to criticize people who want to start a new party to address concerns in our political system.

Getting to the bottom of 60, 61 and 101

By Mark Hillman The debate over ballot measures 60, 61 and 101 has been anything but illuminating.  According to the propaganda, voters should: • Vote yes to punish government at all levels for more than $1 billion in higher taxes and fees enacted without a vote of the people by Gov. Ritter and statehouse Democrats. • Or vote no because "The Ugly 3" will trigger a "voter-approved recession" and put thousands of people out of work. Frankly, both of those ... Full Story
