Today on the radio I heard the president of the United States utter an amazing statement. He was referring to the law recently passed in the state of Arizona, (SB 1070, Support Our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods Act), which in part allows local law enforcement to take steps to determine a person’s legal status here in the U.S.
A big thanks to Chris Quiles, John Meadows and Daniel Scribner for their letters in your April 27, 2010, issue. My gratitude to all of… Continue reading
Mr. DeVol, I’m not sure why you felt the need to level a personal attack against a newspaper columnist (Courier-Herald, April 21), but you only exposed yourself as a product of Fox News and the Beck/Palin shallow mentality that passes for learned debate today.
Ted DeVol wrote a letter to the editor (Courier-Herald, April 21) denigrating Brian Beckley and calling his writings “ignorant and foolish.” I strongly disagree with Ted’s assessment. Mr. Beckley’s editorials in “Our Corner” are a welcome and refreshing addition to The Courier-Herald, especially after years of being subjected to guest commentaries by Glenn-Beck-in-skirt (Adele Ferguson).

Repugnican/tea hypocrites – where was your loud tax rhetoric during the Bush misadministration? Clinton handed Bush a financial surplus. Bush handed Obama a financial deficit.… Continue reading
The City of Buckley is currently trying to pass a bond to construct a new fire station. There are many reasons why your department needs to replace the current station which was built in 1951.
As a small-business owner, I am disgusted with our Legislature. What are they thinking? Raising more taxes is wrong. They need to do what we are all doing. Relook at contracts that are too expensive; cut hours; don’t layoff, just prune hours and salaries. They need to stop adding to our tax burden. Our small business taxes are obscenely high and are driving many out of business. Bankers in this area need to start reaching out to small business owners to help them. Sitting on their bailout money does no good for anyone.
I’m certainly glad that Mr. DeVol doesn’t bother himself with reading “liberal crap.” But then if he had, he probably would have had a better understanding of the myth of large companies losing $100 million dollars due to the new health care bill. He would have learned that this “loss” is pretty much a paper loss only, since what the new health care bill does in this area is change the law signed by President Bush under Medicare Part D, giving these large corporations a cash subsidy of $1,300 per retiree per year to help pay for prescription drug costs incurred by those retirees.
