By Editor |

To the editor: Your community is fortunate to have a librarian, Mary Kathryn Gepner, willing to re-educate us all when it comes to war history. Her Letter to the Editor in the April 7, 2022 edition was a shocker for me. My father served in WWII and much of the history I know about those…

A few examples would be: Failure to recognize Covid before it got out of control when thousands upon thousands of our most vulnerable population died. Trillions increase to National Debt during Trump administration.…
