None of the above?

We wish there was away to mark “None of the Above” when we come to the attorney general portion of our ballot in next Tuesday’s general election. Incumbent Phill Kline and challenger Paul Morrison have embarrassed themselves and our state with their conduct during the current campaign. Their name-calling and mud-slinging undermines the integrity of anyone who would seek to be the state’s top law enforcement official.

We want to respect the laws of our state, but we’ve lost respect for the two candidates who would presume to lead the charge. -DR

Way to go, teams

We congratulate the athletes and teams in our area high schools who have competed so well in the various fall sports. At Hillsboro High, girls’ tennis, boys’ cross country and volleyball have all competed at the state level. The Trojan football team is stepping into the state playoffs this week.

Few teams and athletes reach the goal of a state title. But giving 100 percent effort to make a run at one is the true mark of accomplishment. -DR
