    Intending to respond to the sophomoric condescension of Fred Abraham and Steve Corbin’s recent articles offering “sage” advice to Republicans, I decided their professorial ramblings are not worth my time. Instead, I am congratulating the Democrat Party for its political “victory” in the Sena…

      The city of Cedar Falls recently put out a survey on housing -- I did not get through the whole thing. It was asking my opinion on things like, “Do we need more duplexes?” Honestly, I don’t know, and I’ll bet most people reading these words don’t either. We elect people to hire people whose …

        Hundreds of low-income kids living in Black Hawk County will be warm and dry this winter because of the generous donations our community members shared with our Koats 4 Kids project.

Imagine if high-rise apartment dwellers, including the elderly and moms with babies, had to lug water and food to upper floors because the elevators weren't working. Imagine if surgeons at local hospitals had to operate by generator, and cars had to drive in total darkness while pedestrians navigated by flashlight.

              On the surface, the holiday retail season is off to a great start. Almost 200 million U.S. shoppers turned out in person and online from Thanksgiving Day to Cyber Monday, and holiday retail sales are expected to rise between 6% and 8% from last year to nearly $1 trillion. Amazon reported its most successful launch of a holiday shopping season ever.

              Since colonial times and town-criers the “press” has functioned as an unofficial, unelected fourth branch of our government.
