Letter: Evangelical Christians’ support for Trump defies logic, true faith

Donald Trump has alienated Hispanics, Asians, Muslims, blacks, women, the disabled and the media. Is there any group left? Apparently he is good with white men and 71 percent of evangelical Christians. I am completely dumbfounded about the Christians. I don't get it.

Editorial: Enota inaction is building frustration

Whether in business or in government, it's often best to make a decision and live with the result rather than dither over it forever. While bad choices surely are to be regretted, nothing is worse than sitting on your hands and making no decision at all. The old phrase used by card players is "Think long, think wrong."

Letter: Local resources offer vital support to help victims of domestic violence

Letter: Health insurance tax would put a heavy burden on small business

Health care is consistently ranked as a top concern by Americans , as confirmed by polling conducted earlier this year by the AP and National Opinion Research Center. That's why American small business and families have been so outraged by the health insurance tax, which went into effect in 2014. The HIT is a more than a $150 billion burden on small businesses and any family or individual who buys their own health insurance.

Letter: New school building is needed to bring Enota up to date

Let me clarify a point that seems to have been overlooked in the saga that has become known as the "Enota Garden." We need a new building. The 800-plus children and adults that actually use the building everyday deserve to be brought into the 21st century. Bottom line: A new building is necessary.
