A responsibility to the whole

To SB2 proponents. Yes, here we go again according to your recent flyers. First off, last year the margin was slim and SB2 didn’t pass. If the vote was as you stated — 219 for and 149 against — that’s…

The Senate View

As you know the Legislature is back in session. Some 200 bills have been filed in the Senate (800 in the House). The second year of the biennium is supposed to be slow! Governor Lynch delivered his State of the…

Kudos to the Mason Fire Dept

On December 30, just before midnight, we had a chimney fire at our house. I was getting ready for bed and heard a whooshing, crackling noise. I went to the woodstove to see if that’s where the noise was coming…

From the Police Chief

My son, Andrew Hutchins, was the only Mason student to play on the Milford High School football team and was voted the recipient of the Character Award. It’s an award that the other teammates decide on the recipient based on…

Health Care

Martha Ward wrote last month that we should all be treated for “illnesses they did not choose.” She also (as is often done today) conflates health care with medical care. Apparently she is an advocate for everyone paying the same…

Health Care

I’m writing this in response to Tom Mitchell’s Letter to the Editor in the November issue of the Grapevine. I am confused as to what Tom refers to when he spoke of Mary Christie’s October letter. I reread it and…
