I am writing to help address some of the concerns in regard to the Ferry Park Disc Golf Course. This project was originally approved by city council back in 2019 and was proposed as a way to organize and create a safer, more structured layout for the disc golf that was already being played a…

Georgia goes Jim Crow 2.0 and Major League Baseball, the most conservative of the pro ball leagues takes a stand to say enough. As Georgia writes a law to suppress votes perpetrating a lie that never happened (the election was stolen), despite Georgia’s election being scrutinized for its int…

Pushback against a “meatless day” proclaimed by Colorado Gov. Jared Polis last month was predictably vigorous. It was part of the “war on rural Colorado,” said a state senator who runs a cattle-feeding operation. Twenty-six of Colorado’s 64 counties adopted “meat-in” proclamations. Governors…

After reading the guest opinion in Tuesday’s paper by Thomas L. Knapp, I could only conclude that he never read what the Georgia SB 202 actually says. He probably gets all of his information from the so-called mainstream media that seems to consistently put the Democrat spin on everything.

Your guest opinion by Thomas L. Knapp is a typical example of what I call propaganda to further a liberal cause. He has made it look like Georgia's new voting law is inhumane and designed to discourage voting. Nothing could be further from the truth. Read the Bill SB 202 easily found on line…

Sometimes you hear a crack or a roar. More often the first sign is snow shifting around your feet. The snow starts in a slab and then breaks into blocks that knock you off your skis, careening down in a slide moving as fast as 60-80 mph. If you’re lucky, you live through it, plastered with s…

Our state’s eviction moratorium ends on June 30, in just a few short months. Without a reasonable grace period to pay back rent accrued during the pandemic’s economic crisis, many people like me could face immediate eviction. So many people have lost work or lost income during this crisis an…

Have you checked on your oldest loved ones recently? A few days ago, I was shopping in Walmart, and I noticed a little tiny old lady trying to push a heavy shopping cart that she could barely get down the aisle. So, I asked if I could help her get it to a checkout line and she obliged me. So…

In The Drudge Revolution, last year’s unauthorized biography of Web wizard Matt Drudge, veteran journalist Matthew Lysiak goes where no one has gone before in detailing the life and times of the man behind the internet’s most famous black and white webpage, the Drudge Report.  But the book i…

I am still very upset about the disc golf at Ferry Road Park. The deer that usually graze there run across the road. It’s not “nature” pretty. The sign that states they are testing to see if its a “good fit” and the park authority welcomes comments. I think it doesn’t matter what people thin…

The Langlois Lions extends their gratitude to the community for all the contributions that enabled us to upgrade our building's heating system. Various local businesses and individuals had donated items our 2019 Holiday Craft Fair - specifically for this cause.

For the 2021 fire season, the writing is on the wall. The West, despite a few days of intense winter, is far drier than it was leading up to last year’s record-breaking fires.

I realize it may be too late to change, but I was walking my dog in Topits Park today by, what I believe is the site for the new library. It was hard to tell from the original maps/drawings that were in the paper, but if the site is due north of the National Guard Armory, that site is curren…

If you happened to catch the latest episode of my podcast, The Kuderna Podcast, in which I interviewed economist, Dr. Donald Vandegrift, you likely have debt and inflation fresh on your mind.  The Biden administration just invigorated this already popular debate with the passing of The Ameri…

I'm very disappointed in Coos Health and Wellness. When vaccines started to become a real possibility against COVID, we were told to register with our county department for vaccine distribution information. I went to the site and read that they would "contact you when vaccine appointments be…

Will someone either at the paper or from the city explain to me why some of the new sidewalks on 4th Street end up in a hole instead of at street level? This seems pretty crazy. For someone who is visually impaired - they'll have to step down and then up to cross the street. I would also thi…

In his excellent editorial of March 12, Executive Editor David Rupkalvis, perhaps underthought one point when he wrote “Too many people suffer life-impacting sentences for crimes that, while illegal, hurt no one but themselves. I have long felt govern¬ment should not be in the businesses of …

We live in such a special part of the country. Coos County has definitely been blessed with God’s amazing creation. We’ve got the majestic ocean on one side and the beautiful forests, rivers and vibrant green pastures on the other. We should thank God every day for the privilege of living in…
