I read Kurt Liedtke’s Wednesday, Nov. 12 commentary, “Elections Matter.” Lake County residents are to be commended for an 80 percent turnout during the recent election. However, Kurt needs to be reminded America isn’t a democracy, but a republic! Democracy historically can be defined as “mob rule!” Oregon’s shameful example of mob or majority rule is […]

What type of people are here in Lake County? how do you judge? by the upstanding citizens? the elected officials? or the law enforcement? Is it the “Smoking Gun” district attorney, that persecutes the criminals? I would say persecute, but in Lake County it seems you’re guilty until proven innocent, not innocent until proven guilty. […]
I would like to acknowledge Phil and Jennifer McDonald for many years of service to our community. Besides the many years that Phil has spent serving and protecting the citizens of Lake County as Sheriff, they have both spent countless hours volunteering in numerous organizations. For example, if you have a child involved in 4-H […]

I want to publicly acknowledge Sheriff Phillip McDonald for his 25 years of service in our community. He is a respectable, fair, and honest man. I have been proud to have served as his assistant. During this recent election there were a few who were willing to try to smear him in the community. Despite […]
An election took place a week ago. Most of the country evidently didn’t notice, as estimates show only 37 percent of eligible voters cast a ballot, the lowest turnout for a midterm election since 1942. Absent voters 72 years ago could perhaps be excused, considering so many citizens were busy entering the military to fight […]
I was surprised and saddened to learn the Paisley School District has chosen to “observe” this year’s Veterans Day on Monday, Nov. 10 instead of the official date of Tuesday, Nov. 11, thereby turning their normal three-day weekend into a four-day affair. How nice for them, how dangerous for our nation! Unlike the “Monday holidays” […]
