Big Talk in a Small Town

Posted on August 27, 2014 at 11:03 am

I see lots of people on Facebook doing this “Ice Bucket Challenge” for ALS.  The campaign has raised both awareness and money for research of the disease.  Money to the tune of $88.5 million. While I won’t argue that it’s a good cause, it seems that we could use some of that money to support the issues we have at home. Another post recently started to circulate on social media

    Have you ever seen such a mess as Ferguson? Reports I’ve read say that now others are coming in from other areas to take advantage of the looting and rioting. Other reports can’t agree on who is at fault. Is it the police or the rioters?  New evidence comes out every day proving one side or the other. Social Media is also less than helpful as it allows misinformed individuals

    I gave Trevor a little extra room this week for his last column because I really liked what he had to say. Isn’t it funny what happens when we see the world through another person’s eyes?  Something we see everyday may look completely different to someone else.

    Well, that time has come. Time for this reporter to hit the road. It’s sooner than I planned on but sometimes plans change. I’ve only been a Monroe Cityian for a short time but I am going to miss a lot of things here. First, I’ll miss the people. I got to know some folks really well in my time here.

    By: Adriana Orsini It’s the season where most of us are making our mad dash to squeeze in an end-of-the-summer vacation. With the kids going back to school in just less than two weeks it seems like more and more people are out of the office or checked out of the area.

    By: Trevor Lewis I hate to make plugs like this but in this case I feel it’s worth it. Before the game between the Cardinals and Brewers last Saturday, I went to City Museum. My cousin had told me go to before I even moved out here so I finally decided to get around to it. Right when I walked up and saw the outside of the place, I knew

    By: Adriana Orsini As a representative of our local paper, I work very hard not to form a strong opinion on many matters until almost the last minute. In doing this, I hope to avoid biases, and be able to more accurately portray both sides of an argument. That being said, I am also not one who will often ask voters to favor whatever side I do choose. I don’t
