Example: the man runs for president promising the most transparent administration ever, [...]

CCHS Coach Jerry Chabola to Retire

While at the podium at 7:20 pm addressing the school board at the Jan. 24 meeting of the school board in the council chambers at City Hall, Teacher's Union leader Dave Meilke tossed a joke, "I urge you to vote no on item 9.4, the resignation of Jerry Chabola." But it's not a joke - Chabola is retiring. When former School Board President Scott Zeidman came to the podium, he asked the coach to [...]

Live Music is Not a Luxury

Live Music is Not a Luxury

Dear Editor, We are asking  for your support. Why? Because it costs a lot to put out an orchestra for concerts of live music. Why do we do this when the work is so demanding?

At a campaign kick-off on Sunday Jan. 22, City Council candidate Jim Clarke offered his thoughts on why he was running for council.

Work and family matters had me move away twice but I have always come back home to [...]

The Skinny – Amy Brunell

Ugh with New Year’s Resolutions! I don’t like New Year’s Resolutions. I feel limited, vulnerable and almost defeated before I’ve begun, since I know from experience I rarely accomplish anything past January 31st. It occurred to me many years ago that resolutions could be made and re-evaluated anytime during the year. So why make only New Year’s Resolutions? Why not make [...]
