To the editor, September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month. I encourage everyone to please review the warning signs on the Rock County crisis intervention brochure (available online at co.rock.wi.us/hsd-crisis-intervention). If you are thinking of harming yourself or you know of someone who is thinking of suicide, please call Rock County Crisis Intervention. They are available 24/7 at 608-757-5025, 608-757-2244 or 911.
To the editor, President Donald Trump is doing long-term damage to the credibility and effectiveness of our law enforcement agencies. His frantic, false accusations against individuals who have served this country faithfully for decades are creating doubt. This will result in capricious individuals using this shadow of doubt to evade justice now and far into the future.
To the editor, Cable news, social media and newspapers are full of individuals analyzing the numbers that each political party has to have to be victorious in the fall midterm elections. These pundits appear to know and back up their claims for their side of the upcoming political story. Everyone seems to have the correct and accurate answer. But do they?
Perhaps no other political issue receives so little attention, relative to its importance, as open government. Elections come and go without candidates addressing this fundamental tenet of a democratic society.
