Letter: Didn't like added info
Dear Editor, Thank you for publishing my letter in regard to our state legislators giving themselves a 5.3% wage increase (Star-Observer, Feb. 19). As you well know, the point of my remarks was not the amount of compensation legislators receive, but the fact they gave themselves...

Our View: Some cuts, but government expenses still going up
Gov. Jim Doyle's budget, announced recently capitalizes on the Democratic majority to raise taxes by $1.4 billion, cut some spending and realize a few of the governor's personal goals. Bottom line: We'll pay more and get less.

Letter: Disagrees with writer
Dear Editor, I would like to point out to Steve Nichols that "separation of church and state" is not in the First Amendment to the Constitution. That phrase was actually only used in a letter from Thomas Jefferson to the Danbury Baptist Church. The First Amendment states, "Congress...

Letter: Offers info on debate
Dear Editor, Last week, once again, a badly misinformed reader repeated the lie that has literally changed the face of America over the last 60 years, when he circuitously accused me of "forcing religious views on him." Because, while the "separation of church and state" has been...
