Commentary: Generations lost, generations waiting

Trump, Biden need solid rescue plan for poverty By Richard Gebelein, Tyrone C. Johnson Sr. and Robert Marshall In the early 1960s, the country’s optimism was pervasive with the election of a young president who stirred the nation with hope, enthusiasm and a vision for a better America.

Commentary: At-home dialysis not the right choice for everyone

By Frank Calio In response to Peter Roff’s Commentary, “Rethinking kidney dialysis in the age of COVID-19” (Oct. 10) and the costs associated with treatment, his position — that policymakers should pursue solutions arising from innovations that lower costs and improve patient care — sounds great in theory. But in reality, as a dialysis patient […]

Letter to the Editor: Fourteen letters. Simple, right?

Responsibility. One word. Fourteen letters. Defined as “the state or fact of being answerable or accountable for something within one’s power, control or management.” Clearly, this has not been a true statement of the actions of Donald Trump, this administration, the Environmental Protection Agency and its administrator these past four years, as it has affected […]

Letter to the Editor: COVID-19 not our only major problem

But she was careful not to take on the president who nominated her and sought to create distance between herself and her past personal positions, writings on controversial subjects and even her late mentor. • Not falling for their […]

Commentary: For Latinos and Hispanics, voting has consequences

By Charito Calvachi-Mateyko As public policies are decided in the halls of the legislature, these become personal matters for Americans of Latino descent. For them, national and local deliberations about immigration, Dreamers, equal rights, health care, education, jobs, housing and the economy are not just policy matters in Dover and Washington, D.C., they are everyday […]

Commentary: Court packing issues loom supreme in November

By Reid K. Beveridge Many Americans don’t know it, but the U.S. Constitution doesn’t specify how many justices there will be on the U.S. Supreme Court. It’s been nine since 1869. But it started out as five in 1789. One of the big issues in this year’s presidential debates is whether the Democrats, if they […]
