Letter to the Editor by Paul Caven about tax system

by Paul Caven

I would like to comment on the article posted on December 22 titled "Our Tax System (as explained using Starbucks Coffee). Obviously Dr. Kamerschen’s analogy is less about our actual tax system and more about the social and moral dilemma of a hypothetical $20.00 windfall. How should we divide the money? Dr. Kamerschen’s figures all add up. They make perfect sense… dollars and cents. The only problem

Good Thinking: New Year’s resolutions

by Dr. Don Kuehle

Every year I make some New Year’s resolutions. Every year I break those resolutions, some of them by Jan. 2. So, why should I continue to make resolutions for the new year?

The Poosey Digest: Wide-eyed American optimism

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from the Ridge.

Somehow it just doesn’t fit… doesn’t jive. Any year-end wrap-up of 2010 reads like Dante’s Inferno… a terrible year for world peace, the ugliest economy in memory, fears for our nation’s place in the world, an educational system leaking at the seams, and host of other matters like childhood obesity, new flu strains, and the wrong contestants winning on Dancing With The

Post Scripts: New Year’s greetings

by Joe Snyder

Santa was good to me again this year. Since I am 92 years old and in my second childhood, I guess, Santa brought me a little chipmunk who talks, wiggles his tail and bends over to eat his food. He’s a cute little guy and fun to play with. When I turned him over, guess where he was made? You guessed it, "Made in China." Yes, I
