Critics Of Green Energy Should Consider Hydro

To The Reader’s Forum: A few days ago my friend Rolland Kidder wrote an article about so called fracking for natural gas wells. I’m sure he was sincere in assessing the merits of the process as opposed to cleaner sources of energy, noting that the wind doesn’t always blow, or the sun ...

City, Founders Should Be Proud With NCC

To The Reader’s Forum: The city of Jamestown and the founders of the National Comedy Center are to be congratulated. Conceiving and creating this World Class celebration of comedy would be a major accomplishment and amenity for any city. I encourage the community to wholeheartedly ...

Reader Disagrees With AP Science Report

To The Reader’s Forum: The Associated Press article “Court Orders Ban on Harmful Pesticide” in the August 10 Post-Journal is an example of monumentally bad science reporting. In fact, I doubt it was written by a science reporter or had any pretensions of being a science report. By ...

Truckers’ Use Of Jake Brakes Are Nonsense

To The Reader’s Forum: My 6 a.m. “wake up call” has become the grating sound of some truckers playing with their Jacobsen Brakes (Jake Brakes) as they head westbound across the lake! The sheriff says there’s no law against it (unless they have illegal mufflers) and the state DOT ...

Our First Amendment Right Is Being Dissolved

To The Reader’s Forum: All citizens should be concerned about the “tech giants” acting against Infowars for what they call fake news. Alex Jones may appear to be crazier than a drunk squirrel to many of us, but if they are able to suppress his right to a public forum for his speech, who ...

In Politics, ‘What Goes Around Comes Around’

To The Reader’s Forum: In today’s political environment, life is stressful. Politics, after all, is war. If you can’t lose your business, your wealth, your health and your freedom, you probably should not get involved. This is the price you pay for the life you have chosen. Behind ...

When The Cheese Keeps Moving

I visited a large rummage sale today with no particular idea of what I was looking for. One section had lots of books, and I just couldn’t help myself. I only got a few this time, but I ran across a title that I hadn’t seen for many years. It was a parable by Spencer Johnson called “Who ...

Lakewood Mayor Searches For Manager We Haven’t Voted For

To The Reader’s Forum: When we had our village meeting on June 25 to discuss the total change of how we govern Lakewood, I did not hear one person, beside the mayor, say what a great idea this is. I do recall being told that it would require a village vote. Why, then, are the mayor and her ...

Calling The Constitution A ‘Living Document’ Kills It

To The Reader’s Forum: Look out for gobs of spin to derail Brett Kavanaugh from the Supreme Court. In rejecting the context, objectivity and original meaning of the text, the left makes the Constitution a dead document, but they spin their redefinition of words, exclusion of the context, ...

Democratic System Is A Three-Legged Base

To the Readers Forum: The recent publicity about Democratic socialism started me thinking about our touted capitalist system, and as I thought about it, I realized that our system is really a three legged base, consisting of capitalism, socialism and government regulations. To see that ...

Maryland Shooting Victims Are In The Hands Of God

To The Reader’s Forum: Having been born and raised in Maryland, I was deeply moved by the tragic death of the five staff members of the Capital Gazette in my State’s capital, Annapolis. Annapolis is a beautiful and peaceful city, which my wife and I visited often, since I was twice ...

This Is America’s Darkest Hour
