By Anna Rose Benson



I was happy to see the three small flags on the north side of the municipal building that indicate tree-planting sites.

I had been sad when the big tall black locust trees were cut down from back of the white house that was there.

Editorial: Clinton + Bernie's revolution

Posted on June 9, 2016 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



After Tuesday’s determining primaries, in which Hilary Clinton won convincingly in California and New Jersey and even slipped past Bernie Sanders in South Dakota, the die is cast: Clinton will be the nominee. She has won the majority of the pledged delegates, she has won more states and contests, her steadfast support is across more demographic sectors of the population and far stronger in the most populated regions of the nation. She also has a sure lead among the Democratic Superdelegates, as well she should. She earned it.
