Why libraries are still important

When discussing whether libraries will weather shifts in technology, librarians who have been on the scene longer (OK, only slightly longer) than I have like to mention how everyone was predicting our demise when the Internet came along in the '90s Instead, libraries added free access to the Internet to their missions, and in the process have helped millions bridge the digital divide. Anyone who's been in a library recently will likely attest that they are busy, vital places. Nonetheless, whether libraries are obsolete is a question that is perennially raised. I think the necessity of public libraries will ...

Candidate residency

Rep. Dennis Kucinich, the ultra-left Ohio Congressman who has a penchant for running for president and not getting anywhere, is in danger of losing his congressional seat, which is based in the Cleveland area but might disappear when redistricting takes place later this year. So Kucinich is exploring the idea of running for Congress from Washington state, where his political views would align with many in that west-coast bastion of liberalism. Kucinich certainly wouldn't be the first person to go seeking a place from which to run and serve. Bobby Kennedy did it way back in the 1960s, running ...

KershawHealth decisions impact employees, patients

As a volunteer at KershawHealth, I agree with Bob Dornblaser. We do take jobs away from employees. However, if we all resigned, the hospital leadership would not rehire those employees. The patients would suffer. The employees who depend on our help would suffer. Amy Kinard, the new volunteer director who had nothing to do with this mess, would suffer.

Letters: Reader says Democrats ‘confessing’ torture is distraction

I'm sure everyone is abreast of all the hullaballoo over interrogation techniques used by the CIA to get information from the Guantanamo detainees to assist in avoiding another World Trade Center disaster. Dianne Feinstein, along with Obama and most of the congressional Democrats, insisted on "confessing," as they put it, despite the secretary of state urging against it, terming it detrimental to our interests and safety abroad. So, immediately, China and Korea termed us "bad boys," and why not -- didn't the current administration essentially say that?

Editorial: Police officers

With police behavior having been in the news recently because of incidents in which white officers killed unarmed black citizens, there has been much discussion -- rightfully so -- about whether some officers are acting recklessly. Racial profiling, of course, has been a part of this discussion, as it should be. It's interesting, then, that the U.S. Supreme Court handed down an opinion earlier this week giving some leeway to police who make "reasonable mistakes" in enforcing the law. Of course, reasonable mistakes don't include the right by officers to act without provocation or to use undue force. And ...
