Horrible, Who would shoot a person because they disagreed with him? So sad...

Such a sad story. Rest in Peace Mr. Caldwell.

Thanks for this post. It's rare to see someone posting such a long article on blogs these days- mostRead More people just write a few sentences and point a link somewhere else. This is original for once. <a href="http://www.valentinospizzaandsportsbar.com/">Family Restaurant</a>

As a former At-Large City Councilor during Duncan Ballantyne's tenure as Concord city manager, I canRead More attest to his dedication to strengthening our city's livability and economic growth. It was during this time that we worked on the Horseshoe Pond, Capital Center for the Arts and South Main Street developments, to name a few now successful projects. He brought energy , dedication and enthusiasm to the Council in those years. Deepest sympathy to his family in his untimely passing.

A wonderful, kind soul, taken from us too soon.

amazing how so many people have all the answers and yet their contribution to society is telling usRead More how much they know...or do not know.

Maggie is a fine candidate but Jackie Cilley is the one for me. They are both outstanding women butRead More Jackie Cilley refuses to take "the pledge". Maggie Hassan took the pledge and in my opinion, that's equivalent to making a pact with the devil in order to get elected. Take a look at Jackie Cilley's record --- you won't be disappointed. She will be a fabulous leader for this state and will work tirelessly for us all.

And you're referring to who? If it's me I don't claim to have any answers but I do claim to haveRead More established facts about wealthy elitist politicians that have their hands in mine and your back pockets and have gotten a pass on their activities by the voting public. Now if you enjoy supporting these wealthy elitist poilticians at your own expense that's your perogative, I donhowever don't.

Important note for all of you: There is no school Thursday for WHS students or teachers, and in theRead More chance of inclement weather the funeral will be moved inside the gymnasium.

Wow! I had no idea the Romney's are "closeted birthers". I thought he would run on validRead More subjects to help our country. We lost here in Nevada to Harry Reid because of Sharon Angle's dumb/ignorant/outrageous statements during her campaign...Any news savy person would know that we can see the birth certificate at any time..If the Romney campaign is going to be sidetracked to the birther issue I am truly disappointed . We were planning on attending any Romney rally he may have in our area, but if he is going to dwell on a non-issue instead of the problems we have in our country, he can count us out..

Mitt has five sons, none of whom has volunteered for military service. They are rich spoiled men whoRead More benefit directly from investments their parients make. These guys are not patriots who care one iota about this country. They only care about themselves and their selfish desires. I hope some reporter writes an expose about their lives, occupations, professions, education, and current projects. In 2008, Mitt said his sons were helping him in his presidential campaign and were too busy for other things. I guess that means defending our country is irrelevant. This is typical of rich brats who want the poor and middle class kids to risk their lives defending our country while these rich idiots bask in their wealth and and live spoiled decadent lives. If they had any sense,they would be ashamed of themselves.

You can tell a lot about someone from talking to their kids. Time to have the campaign coaches workRead More on those kids. Repeating a statement (even if from someone else) typically indicates consensus or support for the opinion.
