  • COLUMN: Achieving Dr. Bosler’s dream

    BY REBECCA FENN, Guest Columnist

    When I returned from vacation recently, I was saddened to read of Dr. Bernie Bosler’s death. While I didn’t know him well, I was always impressed by his sincere interest in the well-being of our community.

  • COLUMN: A much-needed vacation

    By VINCE LUECKE, Editor

    I’m usually not all that keen on summer getaways, at least as far as lying next to a pool or perched under a cabana drinking tequila.

    Beer commercials and cruise-company propaganda make it tempting to devote my vacation time to sand and surf, but I’ve seldom taken summer beach vacations.

    One example is the often-stated “fact” that the U.S. Postal Service is losing money and needs to reduce mail delivery from six to five days a week and eventually to three days a week.
