I Enjoyed Reading the Spanish Flu Article

Dear Editor, I enjoyed reading the article regarding the Spanish Flu epidemic of 1918. My grandfather was another one of the casualties of the epidemic.

Time to Set the Record Straight

To the Editor: In the last election, Susan Hatch Davis, after five terms of service in the legislature, lost her seat by a handful of votes. The campaign to oust her was, in my opinion, shamefully distorting of her role and impact there. Now, two years later, it is time to set the record straight. Susan is a quiet person, neither a fiery speaker no...
