Letter to the Editor

By Vinton Today · September 3rd, 2018
Editor: Many have written about the disappearance and murder of Mollie Tibbetts. It was tragic and an outrage. This brutal act was carried out by an individual illegally in country for many years. He had forged State ID and Social Security numbers a serious crime in itself.  Those of us who believe that Mollie and others killed by illegals are somehow bigoted and prejudiced against people of color is an attempt by the left to stop debate.

Living in a Field of Dreams isn't always Heaven

By Vinton Today · August 30th, 2018
It's not something that happens in Iowa, after all, this is supposed to be pretty close to Heaven according to my favorite actor Kevin Costner's film, Field of Dreams. But occasionally something so unimaginable happens that makes us sit back and ponder life. First we had the news that a little boy was found that had been missing for far too long.

R-E-S-P-E-C-Ting the Uniform

(*No this isn't an article about Aretha Franklin, but her song title sums up the topic of this article.) Okay, I admit it. I like to drive and fast. I love the states where the speed limit is 80 mph. Of course, when you are driving in those states, that's the speed in the slow lane. Sometimes, all bets are off when it comes to the flow of traffic.

Just light my food on fire and call it done

By Vinton Today · July 26th, 2018
I grew up at a time, when kids in other countries were starving. This was always the reason why I was never allowed to waste food. At least that was the story, and my dad was sticking to it! He was also a firm believer in “waste not, want not”. It wasn't until after we had been married a while and we had gone out on a date that I said to Dean, “This tastes awful!” He looked at me and said, “You don't have to eat it.

Letter to the Editor: Political Rhetoric and Civility

By Vinton Today · July 10th, 2018
Dear Editor, The current lack of civility in our political discourse is most disturbing and has and will in the future lead to more tragedies. We have already had a shooter (supposed Bernie Sanders supporter) open fire on Republicans practicing for a yearly baseball charity event. I am grateful that Capital Police were present to put a stop to what could have been many casualties.

Dear Editor, It's all in the news. Children are being separated from their parents. This really hasn't been news, it's just that few people pay attention to the big picture. For years I've said that we need to stop this. No one listens. If there's one thing a woman knows, it's that you don't take away her babies.
