Time to quell extreme partisanship (07/15/12)
There are lots of ways in which members of Congress differ from the American people. They are wealthier, whiter and older. Proportionally more of them are men, and for more are lawyers. All of these differences can affect congressional deliberations, but none matches another yawning gap that has opened up between Congress and average Americans: Congress, unlike the country at large, is noxiously partisan...

The death of a small town (07/15/12)
To the Editor: The Town of Staunton is going through major changes, which in the end, will probably result in its death. At last month's town board meeting, there was on the table, a water rate increase and sewage increase. Because of the fact that people who are in the town did not feel it proper to raise the water rates of the people in town and not raise the rates of those who live outside of Staunton, the water increase was tabled until next meeting and so that additional research could be done to check the possibility of a more equal rate raise for both parties.. ...
The church was built for a reason (07/15/12)

George Washington said, "It is impossible to rightly govern a nation without God and the Bible."...
