    Tell it to the District
    Dear Citizen Readers:
    Has your home well gone dry yet?  Did you know that if it does that your home owners insurance won’t cover your well replacement?  
    Digging a deeper well is an expensive proposition.  Depending on how deep you need to go, it can cost several hundred dollars to get to water. Then you have to replace your pump. When the pump tries to pump air, it burns up and you will need a new one to the tune of $1,000 to $1,500—maybe more. It all depends on when you hit water.

  • Who can we blame?

    It is reported that our country, the United States of America, is deep in debt.  It seems our elected governmental officials including the President have had to borrow money to pay for the things our leaders believe are necessary.  I mean, actually borrow money above all the taxes that are collected from those of us who pay them.  

  • The truth about postal reform

Business Week recently catalogued unhappy stakeholders, including postal unions, postal management and some Republicans who wrongly think the bill burdens taxpayers.
