I’m entitled to time and a half if I go over 40 hours for my state job. All workers should be granted the same basic courtesy.

Sean Pidgeon

More ways the government has killed the farming community.

Mark Miller

Get ready for higher prices.

Storm Cilley

We’ve adopted 3 dogs from this shelter over the past 10 years. They were very well cared for. The staff seems dedicated and caring.

Judith Seiser Sibley

This is very disturbing, especially them refusing help.

Donna Heath

Amy Lyn

Leave this topic to parents to discuss with their children when they determine it’s appropriate.
