SWINE FLU: It's not 1918 anymore


The swine flu outbreak that has gripped Mexico and made its way to several other countries — including the U.S. — is disturbing and the fears of a more problems are certainly justified.

TEA PARTIES: Spread the blame

In over 500 cities and towns — including Sulphur Springs — Americans are rising up in protest today over President Obama’s handling of the economy and a scary escalation of tax policies.

But the question remains: At what price do we brave this change to green? It is a question facing the Sulphur Springs City Council right now. It is also one without an easy answer.
