As the Douglas County Commissioners have clearly documented, the county is and has been coping with expenditures that exceed revenues — living for years off of reserves set aside during the glory years of timber harvests. As they have also clearly pointed out, this situation can’t continue b…

WASHINGTON — In 1929, Chief Justice William Howard Taft convinced Congress to finance construction of “a building of dignity and importance” for the Supreme Court. He could not have imagined what the court will ponder during oral arguments this Wednesday. The case concerns the name of an Asi…

The Electoral College meets this Monday in what will be the final step in Donald Trump’s improbable rise to the presidency. But it will also be the last chance for #NeverTrump dead-enders to keep Trump out of the White House. And now, the anti-Trump effort has been given new fuel by allegati…
