We are only weeks away from a very important mid-term election, which means candidates are watching the sand in the hourglass settle to a state of conclusiveness.

They know the voters hold the key to their fate, which is something special about our country. We have a voice.

According to an online reader poll at www.fillmorecountyjournal.com as of Friday, October 8, the statistics speak volumes of the importance of this election. Only 14-percent feel this election is not as important as the 2008 general election, while 32-percent feel it is just as important and 54-percent feel the 2008 midterm election is more important.

I encourage readers to evaluate the candidates with all available resources. We can never know enough about the people we entrust with the financial state of our government -- at all levels.

Posted in Commentary

Fall was in the air, cool enough for long-sleeved shirts, a few leaves already falling from trees in a moderate breeze, blue sky occasionally peeking through gray clouds, a good day for watching migrating birds, at least that is what I anticipated. .....
