The article also states: “we should respect them for the office they hold.” “What adults do and say influences […]

Letter to the editor – Preferential treatment for some but not for others

There is a situation in southern Emmons County where an individual got the County Commissioners to close a portion of 9th Ave. SE to local truck traffic without giving any consideration to the inconvenience and hardship this caused to local producers trying to get their commodities to market. I’m sure there are other like situations of this nature in Emmons […]

Makes me wonder if they know they are not protected by Law with 42 U.S. C. #1983 Civil Rights? “Deprivation of Rights.” Even the President can be sued using this. A few elected officials in the town of Linton are blinded by the Light. So are parasites! Depriving of rights while working under the color of law against public officials […]

From beginning to end, the day did not disappoint! Anyone who has ever been part of a collaborative effort to bring large projects to fruition can empathize […]


Authoritarian leaders who know when they are losing tend to activate personal government disruption. This was the case with Adolf Hitler, when he realized that he was losing as the Russian army was advancing from the east and American and allied armies from the west.

Letter to the Editor – ‘This is what you call community’

June 1 marked the first day of Linton’s Summer 2022 T-ball Program, and I witnessed something beautiful that day.  Up until the day prior to its scheduled start date, the program had yet to find a coach or manager, but then one individual, a local mother and grandmother, stepped up to the plate. With the assistance of two Linton high-school […]
