We’ve now entered into the Twilight Zone

I must have missed the signpost up ahead, because I have obviously entered the Twilight Zone. Looting has become rationalized as just a protest. Defending your property has become a crime. Pride in your country has become racist. Some of the scum of humanity have been memorialized. Entertainers have become philosophers. Socialism/communism have become a beacon of utopian life. Before I entered this zone, there was a Democrat that said “Ask not what your Country can do for you, but what you can do for your Country”. I have evolved from being disappointed to disgusted. There is a difference between intelligence and wisdom. When you are listening to the news, and it’s presented with an abundance of adjectives and adverbs, you are being spoon fed a description to program your opinion. You are being indoctrinated. And worse yet, our education system has become rampant with being taught what to think, rather than how to think. The teachers think it is normal because they were taught that way. (I have more than numerous examples to prove that statement.)

Letter: Sheriff supports Romig for commissioner

I am supporting Earl Romig for Grant County Commissioner, District 1. Earl has been a lifelong resident of Grant County with a back ground of community and public service. Earl started his public service by being a deputy sheriff with the Grant County Sheriff’s Office. After having his career cut short in a hunting incident, he could have given up, but he did not. He started his own ag business where he thrived and has been very successful. Earl has always had the heart for public service. I believe that he is conservative, has a great business sense and will stand up for the residents of Grant County. Being in the ag business, Earl knows how important our agriculture in the county is. I know he will work closely with the farmers to ensure their voices are heard and issues are addressed. Because of Earl’s business mindset, I know that he will be a great steward of taxpayer dollars, while making sure the county can operate at a proper level. He is a big supporter of public safety and knows there is a need for it. I believe Earl Romig will be progressive and help take Grant County into the future. Please join me in voting for Earl Romig, Grant County Commissioner.
