The degree to which some folk are capable of fooling themselves is simply stunning. In my field studies, as a natural born anthropologist, in our area, I’ve come to identify the politically self-deluded as “Kearbearians.” It’s the local flavor of what’s nationally known as Tea Party folk. ...

With an outpouring of generosity, the ArtRageous Gaye-La! event celebrated Gaye Wolfe, an artist-hero of our community, and the gifts she leaves behind. Heartfelt thanks to Charlie Wolfe and Sam Smith for donating Gaye’s amazing artwork to a silent auction in support of the arts advocacy, educatio...

I, for one, am in support of the government shutdown and against raising the debt ceiling. In truth 83 percent of the government is still functioning (including parts that I would like to see shut — like NSA and TSA).

Thanks to all the hospital staff (too numerous to name) for being so kind to me and showing me to the next testing room last week when I was in pain.  Hospitals are not my favorite destination and doctors are not my favorite people. There are few doctors who will take care of one problem withou...

On June 5, I was medevaced from an accident in Bear Cove to your hospital. I have nothing but high praise for Dr. Sarah Roberts, the ER staff and the nursing staff. I was cared for wonderfully, and my back is making a complete recovery.  Your community should be proud of your hospital and its s...

I’m glad Obama is staying firm on health care. We rank 37th in the world.    That’s not no. 1. The Affordable Care Act sounds like an improvement all can afford. It’s taking someone as smart as President Obama to find an inroad so the American people aren’t getting shafted by insur...
