I don’t know about you, but as for me, I am fed up with our socialist city council. Budget time — isn’t it great? —  and we are getting the same song and dance as last year from our socialist council members.  We have a budget shortfall so we need to raise your taxes or raise fees ...

As I mentioned in a recent Point of View piece, I’ve turned the news back on to behold Donald Trump blame illegal immigrants for what’s at the core of what’s wrong with our country. His scapegoating certainly seems to resonate with Republicans with their going gaga over it and him. It appears ...
