Does anyone care?

The American nightmare

GOP picking up steam

To the Editor, The Sept. 19 “Trump Train” road rally sponsored by the Hancock County Republican Committee was a success. The final count I got was 115 vehicles, but we picked up quite a few more, along the way, so perhaps about 130. I want to thank everyone who took the time to come ...

Reasons to vote for Biden

Government by the people, not the money
