    Venomous rantings have consequences
    Editor:
    Shame, shame, shame on Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Mike Rosen, Sarah Palin, et al and Tea Party Extremists for helping to create a climate of hatred toward government, government officials and politicians of opposing views in the U.S. Your daily venomous rantings have consequences on susceptible individuals, encouraging acts of violence and murder.

    Foothills district can’t afford raises for managers
    Editor:
    Foothills Park and Recreation District’s 2011 budget proposal is seeking a $225,000 increase in compensation for employees at the same time that it is planning cuts of $150,000 from the previous year’s expenditures. How does this make sense?
