    Thankful Thursday: Prayer is the most powerful tool

    I was brushing my teeth and complaining that the water was running too slow. Then I was struck by the reality, I have a bathroom and running water while so many in the world have none of that! I hang my head and pray with thanks! I have a warm breakfast every morning while others don’t know...

    Letter: Nice to see Sterling’s rebuilding

    Nice to see the popular Sterling’s on George Washington Way rebuilding to get a better view of the river. Jim Sterling wonders why the original builders didn’t take advantage of the view location, in the back of the current parking lot, way back when. My recollection is that the original...

    I wanted to provide our community with some good news about our Emergency Medical Service (EMS) program. Benton County Fire District 4 has improved emergency response times by three minutes on average for EMS-related calls.

    Letter: Reduce emissions

    Projections of future climate change are not just based on climate models. Data from ice cores on Greenland and Antarctica tell a consistent story. Earth’s climate has varied widely over the last 800,000 years as ice accumulated over Canada during ice ages and then melted during interglacial...
