  • A week or so ago, Columbia Spy posted several photos of the trees identified for removal at River Park. Seems like nearly every tree nearest the River are “orange dot” identified. This defoliation project surely will change the character of the Riverfront.

  • This is for the Vietnam veteran and veterans stationed near the DMZ in Korea from April 1, 1968 ti August 31, 1971; this important article is from the current issue of VFW Magazine.

  1. The TPP, if approved by Congress, would be a disaster for the United States. People need to read what it would do and then tell their Senators and Representatives to vote against the Trans Pacific Partnership.

  2. Our take is that this is a “done deal” secured by the “bought-and-paid-for elected public servants” who do their masters’ bidding. Gosh, we hope we’re wrong.

    • Actually, because Congress gave President Obama what he wanted – Fast Track negotiations – Congress still must approve TPP, but with no debate, so they must vote “up” or “down” only. If they vote “Yea,” the agreement passes.
