READER LETTER: Vote for change Tuesday

What a breath of fresh air. Andy Sololovich would be a perfect candidate. He may not have been born and raised right here but that could be his bonus! He would come with ideas that worked in other places not old stale “it worked in the past” statements.

We live in a completely different economic time than the past; what worked then will not work now. I think he is just what this council needs — someone who is new, fresh, and ready to hit the pavement running! Look at the time he has been here and he is knee deep in the community already showing he cares. He isn’t making false claims of not raising taxes because as we all know that’s not possible. The community still “wants”, and in order to make those “wants” sometimes that involves a tax increase. And he is stable. He hasn’t been let go of most of his jobs from his past.

The citizens of this community have lots of complaints. They cry for something different. If you are serious about wanting something different go out and vote for Andy and make that difference.

Rhonda Scobee,

Clinton

    I wanted to share some positive news about a business located in Clinton that I’m guessing most residents aren’t aware even exists. It’s Northridge Pet Cremation on Main Avenue and for me they were recently a godsend.

  • Lindley, Tom.jpg Better police needed for college teams enticed to cheat

    The NCAA once cracked down on colleges that went too far luring top prospects, then it targeted teams that lathered players with special treatment. That was until the NCAA's get-tough approach backfired, rendering it ineffective and creating an opportunity for those who want to play dirty.
