It stopped me for a moment. A stop sign that is. Nothing strange about that, except I was walking on Ives Avenue near the railroad tracks at the time. Stop signs are now posted on both sides of the tracks … along the pedestrian path. Strange place for stop signs I thought. I later noticed more were posted at the Knight Avenue and another closed crossing farther to the east. Are we...

They may sit on the sidelines because they don’t care for either party front-runner.   That would be unfortunate for the United States, the bastion of freedoms,...

I was deeply sadden by the passing of Noel Phifer, 90, last week. It was a loss of another great community leader, who helped shape generations of people through his work as a school teacher and administrator as well as a mentor and community volunteer. His involvement in the community and throughout the area indicates a lengthy list of...
