Tumbleweed hit the right notes on this one. Unfortunately, we won't be hearing from him anymore as he passed away this weekend. He loved his community and served it well for many years. He also voiced his opinions on these pages with conviction and with regularity. I did not often agr…

No local elected official wastes more time on unnecessary legislation than Lee Heider. During his tenure in the legislature, he has not demonstrated even a rudimentary understanding of the constitution or how laws even work. Yet, we keep sending him up there .....

He spewed a lot of hate this morning on the Babayan article, too. He's a proud guy and in real life would probably help anyone, regardless of origin, who needs it. Served both his country and his community with honor, but he is obviously over-consuming and believing the fake news on right-…

Tumbleweed - I thought we were friends. I always enjoy your posts because you are genuinely proud of our area and are willing to speak out on local issues. I also respect your prior law enforcement service. For the record, I fit none of the labels you suggest -- I am absolutely a patriot …
