Lois Stoffle: Thanks, TMH!

Last week I received a “thank you” card from The Memorial Hospital. It was signed by several of the nurses and CNAs who cared for me during my recent stay after having knee surgery. They were expressing their gratitude to me for choosing TMH for my stay.

Kyla Pogline: Parallel America

America is a land of diverse people. We come in all shapes and sizes. We come in different colors, all speak differently, or wear different clothes. The thing that people tend to forget is we are all people! We all breath the same air, and have a heart that beats the same way!

I am extremely humbled to have been elected to serve as your County Commissioner. I would like to thank all those who helped and supported me over the last seven months. The process of campaigning gave me the opportunity to gain a much broader understanding of how deeply invested in this community so many people are.

Kevin Copeland: Victory for those who felt powerless

"No, this was not a win for Republicans or conservatives, but a victory for every individual who works hard every day to contribute to this great nation — people who have felt powerless to affect the previous political climate." — Kevin Copeland

Kathy Bower: Thanks for prayers

I’m somewhat tardy at getting this out, but I want to thank all for their thoughts, prayers and cards. They all have been helpful as Lynn is home and improving daily.

Patrick Mosbey: Political angst widens

I have watched with interest (and grief) the “display” of anger and disappointment of the “losing” side in this election. I remember how I felt (as a conservative) when we lost in 2008 and again in 2012. I also felt disappointment and even anger, but I don’t recall any “riots” by our side at that time. We accepted the results and moved on.
