To the editor, As I write this, the government shutdown has gone on over 30 days. Why didn’t President Donald Trump push for a border wall while he and his Republican co-conspirators were in charge of everything if it’s such an emergency? I think the real reason for the shutdown is because he doesn’t have the money to pay the hired help due to the tax cuts for billionaires program. He could never let it be said that he broke the U.S. government because that would throw the entire world economy into a tailspin. It looks better to shut down the government and use that excuse rather than tell everybody you can’t afford to pay them.
To the editor, On behalf of our residents and staff members, I would like to thank the Stateline area for the generosity and caring shown to us during the holidays. It truly was a special Christmas season.
