I awoke the other morning in a cold sweat from a horrific dream that Donald Trump was running for president and was about neck and neck with Hillary Clinton - until I accepted it was a frightful reality rather than just a bad dream. Trump is Trump, and would not change if elected president. He would react hastily or drastically to the slightest provocation with no inkling as to the possible results of his actions.

Letter: A president who knows business is just what our country needs

Recently the subject of paid taxes came up in the debates on television. I know for a fact Donald Trump, being a tremendous businessman, is very knowledgeable about the many ways taxes can be paid but not at the risk of losing money.

Letter: A truthful candidate is deserving of support, but that’s not Trump

I agree with Helen Stell that when a candidate speaks the truth they deserve your support. However, she's obviously missing which candidate that is. I suggest she do some Googling and check on Donald Trump's responses. Any subject, it doesn't matter. He lies about everything.

Letter: Listen to facts about styrene, not hyped up scare tactics

The recent hysteria about styrene emissions from our company, Mincey Marble, is sadly based on speculation and exaggeration, not science and fact. After nearly 40 years of operation with virtually no complaints, it seems obvious the hype is part of a well-timed strategy to influence our rezoning effort.
