H. Neal Glanville: An unorthodox Halloween tale

In the 1900s, when large nations were beginning to realize how easy it was to grab power from smaller, basically unarmed countries, it was casually observed and often laughed about in the American newspapers of the day. The politicians of the time saw no real reason to worry about some European country squashing another country just so they could “crow” about how big and powerful they were getting. This was all about to change the first week of October 1904.

Thompson-Booker: Vote no on 2B

To the editor: I am writing to urge the citizens of Craig to vote no on 2B on Tuesday. It is not that I do not support a lodging tax, but I do not support increasing the lodging tax by 5 percent during this period of economic downturn. Many of the lodgers are being impacted by the lack of work that was in the area this spring and summer. Now we are asking those that do come to Craig for work, which is the primary reason most people rent hotel rooms, to pay 5 percent more.

James Merett: Not worth supporting

To the editor: I have always been a registered Republican since I came of age to vote.
