Seniors walk both for exercise and out of necessity. Sidewalks are used by parents with small children in hand or pushing strollers. Children use sidewalks going to school or activities. Each day countless people walk dogs on our sidewalks. Sidewalks belong to pedestrians. That is why it is illegal to ride bicycles on them. To open them to motorized vehicles for the simple convenience of a small segment of the population and a few extra dollars of revenue seems less than judicious. It is just plain dangerous. Re: “Trump’s travel ban was about national security not religious bias,” July 1 commentary; and July 1 Adam Zyglis editorial cartoon Elizabeth Slattery’s careful analysis of the Supreme Court decision on President Donald Trump’s travel ban stands in stark contrast to the ridiculous editorial cartoon depicting the Justices as the “hear, see, and speak no evil” monkeys, upholding Trump’s mythical “complete and total shut down of Muslims entering the U.S.” This cartoon exemplifies the rhetoric being promulgated by those who wish to depict the purpose of the ban as religious-based and not security-based.

Some Professional Ideas On Trouble-free Solutions Of
Marijuana ad complicates delivery of small Alaska newspaper JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) � A small Alaska newspaper is scrambling to distribute papers after the U.S. Postal Service raised questions about a marijuana ad. Jenny-Marie Stryker is a reporter with the Chilkat Valley News in Haines. She says a new marijuana business took out the ad. She says the paper didn’t realize it would be problematic until it was contacted by the Postal Service. Marijuana is legal in Alaska but illegal on the federal level. Stryker says the ad, at the bottom of a page, was being cut out of papers bound for out-of-town subscribers. Those in town were invited to pick theirs up. Some were delivered. Because there were ads on the other side of the marijuana ad, the paper did not cut it out of papers distributed in person locally.

Locating Central Criteria For
From 2003 to 2014, the circulation of local newspapers decreased by 27 percent, and statehouse reporters decreased by 35 percent. Using data on local newspapers and municipal bond yields from 1996 to 2015, the authors compare municipal bond yield spreads for counties with three or fewer local papers before and after a closure, to counties where no local papers closed. Three years after a newspaper closure, municipal bond yields in that county increase by 0.05 to 0.11 percentage points, they find. The authors find similar results when comparing the effect of closures on bond yields between counties with few local newspapers and counties with many papers. They argue that this is because closures in counties with high numbers of local newspapers will probably not affect local news coverage, as other newspapers may fill in any potential information gaps. The authors perform various tests to show that economic trends and other unobservable variables do not drive this relationship. For instance, they match neighboring counties with similar populations (and thus similar economic conditions)—one with a closure and one without—and compare borrowing costs before and after a closure. Indeed, counties with closures had significant increases in borrowing costs, whereas the neighboring counties did not. “[C]losing local newspapers increase government borrowing costs because (1) less information is publicly available, and (2) local officials are no longer monitored as closely, reducing the quality of governance.” The authors speculate that closing local newspapers increase government borrowing costs because (1) less information is publicly available, and (2) local officials are no longer monitored as closely, reducing the quality of governance. The authors show that newspaper closures are associated with deterioration in many government efficiency metrics, including government wage rates, government employees per capita, and tax dollars per capita.
