Hate big government? Try none at all

Interior PolicyGun ControlPersonal Weapon Control

I completely agree with op-ed contributor Mark Thistel's commentary on the progress our country has made over the last century ("The not-so-good old days," Dec. 1).

If our country's government and laws have become so oppressive to some people, those that feel that way should know there is an alternative. It's a Utopia where big government, taxes and gun control laws don't exist.

You can walk down the middle of the street, armed to the teeth, and keep every cent you earn. This place is known as Mogadishu, the capital of Somalia. Good luck.

      Carroll schools at a crossroads

      The Carroll County public schools are at a crossroads. Teachers are leaving in record numbers to earn substantially higher salaries in neighboring counties. The problems facing our school system fall directly on the doorstep of our current elected officials at both the county and state levels.
