Mary Sue is running as an Independent - because in this political climate, that's exactly what she is. It wasn't that long ago when moderate members of the Republican Party were the driving force behind plat- forms and broad decision- making. Now however, the Party has shifted so far to the right that our leaders care most about passing extremist agendas ~nd have all but forgotten the people and communi- ties they were elected to represent. lust look at the Luna Laws. These unproven and highly controversial educational reforms dis- proportionately affect the budgets of small, rural dis- tricts. And yet Rep. Boyle was more than happy to vote for them without consulting local superin- tendents, administrators, teachers or parents. Rep. Boyle has demonstrated time and again that her loyalty lies with the Party and not the people. It is time to put an Independent voice in the statehouse. It is time to elect Mary Sue Roach. Write in Robin ]ames. Dear Editor: I would like to put to rest a rumor that is going around about the newly appointed Assessor for Adams County. It is said that none of her staff is supporting her in the up and coming election. ]-his is not true. I for one do support Robin and will be writing in Robin James for Adams Council Assessor. She is very supportive of her staff and has been working hard right along with everyone else. We have heard that some people were look- ing for a change in some of the elected positions in the County. Well, with Robin only being in the position for a few short months, we did get a change. Now we just need to let her show us what she can do. She has been working for the good people of Adams County for over 10 years and feels that she still has a lot more to offer. So don't forget to vote on November 6th and write in Robin James for Adams County Assessor. M;k & F-r ~ ; gva/ e Depressions Compared I think comparison" is an extremely useful and coldly honest tool when comparing fluid dynam- ics like politics. That said, in the quest for open, unreserved integrity let us first compare the cur- rent, ongoing depression to the 1929 Dow-Jones Industrials "Crash" and ensuing Great Depression of the 1930s. Republican Herbert Hoover was president eight months when, in September 1929, the DJIA reached an all time record high of @ 381. During his three remain- ing years as president, he presided over the US economy and, hence, the DJIA when it reached a record low of @ 43 in July of 1932! Yes folks, that represents a DJIA loss of @90% of American indus- trial wealth and produc- tion, and Republicans were in control and a Republican was President of the United States of America!

I am running a write in campaign foi: the off~ce of Adams County Assessor. The Assessor's race is not about an indi- vidual getting a job, it is about electing the right individual to .repre- sent and run the office. My background in the Assessor's Office for more than ten years has given me the opportunity to learn the job beginning at an entry-level position up through my current posi- tion as County Assessor. The job of Assessor takes training, commitment and time to perform the posi- tion properly. The job is not just managerial and takes more than cus- tomer service skills.
