Marijuana moratorium


I noticed with interest in your Feb. 6 article, titled “Six more months,” referring to the additional six-month moratorium on marijuana sales in Sunnyside.

A silent blessing

Somehow the snow is a little like Christmas. We can expect it. We can listen to the television weather and expect it. But still, when it comes it’s like a gift … a wonderful unwrapped gift, because it is the wrapping.

Beware... scammers attempting to steal our IRS tax returns

As if it weren’t already a pain to file taxes every spring, there’s a new and obnoxious twist that means people need to file their taxes as soon as possible.

Sports Illustrated’s plus-size controversy

You’ve probably heard the hullabaloo about this year’s “Sports Illustrated” swimsuit issue. The average American woman wears a size 14, but SI is just now acknowledging such “plus-size” women, allowing model Ashley Graham (size 14) into a PAID ADVERTISEMENT and Australian model Robyn Lawley (who doesn’t really think of her size 12 physique as making her plus-size) into the editorial content.

Six months won’t solve Williams’ woes

Brian Williams probably isn’t a liar. Based on recent revelations, amplifications and clarifications, he appears to be a serial exaggerator.

Time races on by

Mabel Adams was out the other day, with her new walker, the one with the basket on it, and a seat for sitting when she gets tired. It’s a purple kind of walker and she likes it. It has hand brakes, too, just like a bicycle.

No issues with police


I am writing in response to an article entitled “Six More Months” that was published in the Daily Sun News on Friday, Feb. 6. In the article I am said to have been critical of the police and that I thought they should be doing a better job arresting those who sell marijuana to our children. This is not true. I did not speak a word about the police.

Vaccine politics: bowing at the altar of ignorance

Listening to the attacks on vaccines, I’m reminded of the closing line in The Great Gatsby: “So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.”
