When faith with God, GPS not necessary

Leonard Lauriault I was given a global positioning system (GPS) unit recently to help find our way while traveling.

Women often have more need to find an alternative solution because, unlike their macho counterparts, “brute force” is not usually a choice. Which brings me to Kristy and her pet cow Jers.

04-14-2007: Letters to Editor

In regards to the racetrack and casino proposal, it is my earnest hope that we will not not allow this project to proceed, considering the damage that it will do to our community.
