Guest Column: There is good news about county finances

Guest Column: Despite flaws, Trump the best candidate
As News Editor, Alan Choate certainly has the bully pulpit and the lead in expressing political opinion in the Daily Miner.

Christmas carols for a campaign year
Merry Christmas, and sing along!
