Factors are many in healthcare crisis

Letter to the Editor

Healthcare crisis, rising costs and gross malfeasance are the result of demand outstripping supply while regulations distorted free market forces. Adverse selection bias created by Obama’s subsidies and exchanges allow the 20 million uninsured ‘free healthcare’ where increased demand caused premiums to soar.

Study backs facts on truth of vaccination

Letter to the Editor

This is in response to Teea Hillyard’s unresearched opinion [guest commentary, June 7 issue] that all kids should be vaccinated. It has never been done before.

Letters to the Editor: May 31, 2017

[Regarding May 17 issue guest opinion: Reducing mental health stigma key to supporting healthy communities] “Advocacy For” is the positive use of language to achieve positive goals. It is measured by the frequency of positive affirmations, the infrequency of negatives. As simple as that seems, recognizing the positives and the negatives in a society which confuses the two is often difficult.

Proud, appreciative of community’s support

The 2017 Grangeville High School graduating class and their parents want to thank you for your support in making the 2017 Alcohol and Drug Free Senior Fun Night Graduation Party a huge success.

Letter to the Editor

Unless something happens very soon, a disaster is close to happening that will change not only our lives, but the lives of our children, grandchildren and many others who have come to cherish a unique piece of history. I speak of The Old Opera House in Kooskia.
