Letters to the Editor

Do nothing congress?

    This letter is in answer to the Horgans’ letter, “GOP representative, senators do nothing” in last week’s paper.
    I think you’re forgetting one very important thing. The GOP Representatives in the House are in the minority. Since any bill that requires any funding must originate in the House, it’s impossible for even the Republicans in the Senate to get anything passed if it requires funding.

Schell deserved more time in jail

    Stan Schell, a 71-year-old sex offender, has written letters to this paper saying that he is being held in Civil Commitment (where, upon a doctor's recommendation, people are put for their and others' safety) wrongly as a further punishment beyond his jail time, even though as a 71-year-old he is no longer a sexual threat.
