Voters, you're being manipulated by the media on Hillary Clinton's behalf

Campaign 2016 Debate Trump Media

I read Don Porter’s Oct. 19 claim that “Voter fraud is a figment of Trump’s — and his mouthpieces’ — imagination.” If Porter had actually conducted adequate research, he would have discovered that rigged elections in this country occur. In the last half...


Clemens fighting to make meds more affordable

BN 032216 Democratic Caucus 06-3

Richard Bolin's Oct. 19 letter hit the nail right on the head (”Clemens has the right skills, demeanor to replace Bishop in Congress”). Dr. Clemens has been my physician for many years and in addition to the other attributes pointed out by Mr. Bolin, Dr. Clemens has been fighting for...
