Letters – Theater, Parties and Poppies

Patron encourages theater support To the Editor: If you didn’t go to the play, “Who’s on First,” recently at the Gaslight-Baker Theatre, you missed a really good show.

From the Clocktower – Hey, coaches… This is how you make a fan.

By Kathi Bliss Editor/POST-REGISTER   For the better part of the last 40 years, I’ve shocked and alarmed my family and friends.

From the Clocktower – Are you sure your news is trustworthy?

By Kathi Bliss Editor/POST-REGISTER   I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m starting to think that Nov. 7, 2012, is going to be my favorite day of this year.

From the Clocktower – Where does Bonn find the time for new duties?

By Kathi Bliss  Editor/POST-REGISTER   Last year, when Judge Bonn insisted on having a County Administrator, he told us – on the record – that he spent so much time attending meetings of various local, regional and state councils that he felt it was appropriate to have assistance in the administrative duties of the County.

From the Clocktower – Can you ever really trust what you think you know?

By Kathi Bliss Editor/POST-REGISTER   The LISD mapping situation has me concerned. I’m worried about how far-reaching and widespread the problem is, if in fact it is a problem. I’m worried that there are other voters out there who are voting in the wrong district, because the rolls and the maps don’t match, and I’m [...]
