    Published: Wed, May 27, 2015

    Where is the U.S. interest? To say that Memorial Day elicits mixed feelings would be an understatement. It elicits only one feeling: anger. When I was a child growing up in the 1950s, Memorial Day was celebrated as an occasion to honor those fallen soldiers who had died for noble...

    Still 'wicked' upset about losses I find it amusing that you would publish yet another baseless, one-sided Deflategate opinion in your paper, this one a hypocritical letter from Bob Simmons in the May 20 Gazette. First he takes a silly cheap shot at the New England Patriots...
