When the Republicans promised to repeal and replace Obamacare, they said it would be just as good if not better than the "failing" law, and cheaper. If we imagine health insurance as a car, that would mean the same car would cost less.

Letter: A 'ridiculous display of immaturity' by the president

Unbelievable. We could improve the government by shutting it down. Health care would be better if we kicked 24 million off it. This country will gain in status by building larger detainment centers and a beautiful wall. Making peace in the Mideast shouldn't be all that hard.

Letter: Agrees with need for Issue 5, but will vote against Issue 4

I share with my fellow Munroe Falls City Councilmembers the importance of Issue 5. Issue 5 is a police levy and identical in nature to the police levy we attempted to pass in 2014. I believe the police department needs an assured funding stream without total reliance on the General Fund.

Letter: Says our government remains 'a work in progress'

Approaching Easter, perennial memorial celebrated by Christians, imbedded culturally, joined by Christmas and by recognition of diversity of religious landmarks, the symbolic message of life everlasting comes amid chaos, poverty, hate crimes, mayhem, and nations engaged in what they consider justified narratives of wars or rumors of wars.

Our View: Use Easter as a chance to be a better you

During Easter people make a better effort to remember their faith and be better a person to others, in a small way echoing Jesus' sacrifice of himself for the betterment of everyone on Earth. This desire to reach out to others is always welcome, and a great thing to see.
