A Sobering Look Beyond the Election
This campaign year has been full of twists and turns. We don’t know what’s going to happen tomorrow, let alone on Nov. 8. So talking about what comes afterward seems premature. But it’s been on my mind a lot, because I’m worried. This is not about who wins the presidency....

Election letters policy
The Pine Journal will accept Letters to the Editor endorsing local political candidates or from the candidates themselves through noon Oct. 25 (to run in the Oct. 27 issue). That will give us one issue before the Nov. 8 election for rebuttal letters if needed. Letter writers can only...

Another voice lost, but not forgotten
Mike Berglund shared part of his soul with the community he loved when he wrote his columns and stories, and made the Pine Journal a better paper in the process. He understood that it takes many voices to make a healthy community, and he was brave enough to put his thoughts out there...

Guest Commentary: Social media’s challenge to democracy
I’ve been involved in politics for the better part of a lifetime, and have spoken at a lot of public meetings over the years. There’s one question, I think, that I’ve heard more than any other: “If I want to be an informed citizen, which sources of information should I consult?”...

To the Editor: School board member is silent no more
He brings up a good point, so I would like to say I was pleased to affirm Mr. Scarbrough’s contract. He has always responded to the School Board’s desires and communicates with us well. He runs a district that is the envy of the region as shown by our MMR rankings and the positive...

Guest Commentary: The media’s responsibility to our democracy
You see, I don’t actually mind when journalists — whether in print, on television or online — treat what politicians say with skepticism. That means they’re doing their jobs.

Guest Commentary: What does Congress need? Your attention!
But I choose those words — “we” and “produce” — carefully. Making it happen depends on you. As a voter, you have to go beyond asking about the candidates’ positions on substantive issues. In addition, you have to judge whether a candidate has the will and the capability...
