Clinton is running incognito
This is the first time I have seen a presidential candidate run a campaign incognito – from behind a pair of sunglasses and appearing in carefully staged “media events.” Hillary Clinton acts more like she’s afraid she’s being profiled on “America’s Most Wanted” than she does someone running for president of the United States.
Usually a candidate wants as much media exposure as possible, but in Clinton’s case the more you see the less appealing she becomes.
Clinton has calculated that she has the Democratic nomination wrapped up, so why upset the apple cart answering questions about influence peddling, big-money deals with foreign governments and deleted e-mails? Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., summed it up best: Clinton needs two planes – one for herself and another for all that baggage.

I was impressed with the argument presented by Don McGinty, president of McGinty Machine Co., about keeping the Export-Import Bank in existence (May 20 Letters to the Editor). My knowledge of McGinty Machine is 64 years old. The company and others like it are very important to the local economy.
Way back in 1951, McGinty was making a fuel tank connector part for Boeing and was the only vendor capable of machining that part to Boeing’s standards. Without that one part, the planes could not leave the ground. I had that fact drilled in my head by McGinty’s father and stayed on track to meet production demands.
It is important that our representatives and other government officials learn the hard facts. I appreciate Don McGinty for speaking out.
Abide by covenants
If people move into a covenant community knowing the covenants that govern that community, they have no other option, if they do not agree with such covenants, than to pack up their pink flamingos and move back to where they came from. Their neighbors enjoy and abide by these covenants for a reason.
