Sex education should go beyond sterile descriptions of relationships

  • May 26, 2015 at 7:02PM

Thank you, Dr. Elizabeth Archambault, for the conversation starter.(“Don’t be hesitant to start the conversation about sex,” May 5). Let’s lay the full picture of sexuality before young people. Young friends know this: Love is central to sexuality. Lifelong engagement with one person will enrich you more than is imaginable. For the sake of your joy, do not settle for anything less.

The government continues to deny our rights and freedoms

  • May 26, 2015 at 6:58PM

The current attempt by this administration and others to pass a trade bill, which was conceived and negotiated in secret, is further evidence that freedom itself is on its death bed in America. It is evidence that the U.S. government is not designed or intended to serve the interests of most citizens, but rather is designed and dedicated to serving the interests of an elite few who have no real interest in seeking or preserving other people’s basic rights, freedom or justice for all.

It’s time again to start writing our members of Congress about GMO labeling laws. There’s a bill before Congress, HR1599, and if it passes, states will lose the right to pass GMO labeling laws. This bill would keep people in the dark about GMOs, thus ensuring a growing number of GMO products in our country.
