    Positive reinforcement is a better training option for pets
    Editor:

    Taxpayer funds should be used more wisely than in pursuing ‘The Great Gatorade Heist’
    Editor:
    About a month ago on a Friday night, my wife and I looked out the front of our home to see two Jefferson County police vehicles with their lights flashing. After watching a while and seeing no ambulance on the scene, we realized no one was hurt, and it was none of our business.

    Clean energy creates jobs
    Editor:
    Clean energy is the best way to create jobs we need, and we need jobs now. Clean energy, like solar power, is already putting people to work — there are more than 5,500 solar companies employing more than 100,000 Americans in regions throughout the country — and the industry is one of the few American industries that is actually growing.
