    Letter: Ag-gag bill

    I was so happy to see another "ag gag" letter printed Dec. 9 by Rob Strong. This is a subject that will never end. It's been in the paper since March. When will the governor and his cronies fess up and stop taking money to hide their secrets? We weren't stupid then, and are much smarter now. Those...

    Letter: Skills gap

    Regarding the Sunday, Dec. 14, pro and con opinions on closing the "skills gap," your editors should know by now that the skills gap is a corporate lie. The myth has been debunked in books and articles that would take a year to read. The problem is businesses won't train workers, pay competitive...
