No matter how busy, parents can still make time for kids We have all heard the phrase “it takes a village to raise a child.” There is no doubt that we need a strong village to support us in raising our children, but we as parents or caretakers must provide the foundation and framework for our own children. In the April 22 article, “Early reading mentors critical,” retired professor Al Magid proposes a novel yet ...

Diane Hombach are we still blaming Bush five and a half years later? How about Obamas 9 trillion worth of new debt and zero cuts. How about poverty grew from 37 million people to 50 million people under Obama. He sure has done a great job....Obama the worse President in the history of America.

I fail to understand your personal animosity for President Obama, wmarincic. He does not rule absolutely, nor single-handedly. It seems that a great deal of country's problems stem from the fact that people refuse to find solutions through compromise; everyone wants the world to run their way, without concern for other people.

You have every right to disagree with the sitting president and vote against a second term for him (or her, eventually). If you voted for the other candidate, get over it. Ask yourself honestly, if you could really do better when faced with all the political pressures and a congress best described as juvenile delinquents. Personally, I would love to simply exchange ideas with you and others, without the venom - just respect.

Newsworthy, wmarincic said it correctly. 5 1/2 years!! at what point do you stop blaming Bush or others for the sophomoric skills of your man Obama? I thought he was the smartest President we have ever had. You should stop and take a deep breath, think about it for a while. He really has not been particularly good at this job and that should be no surprise. He has never had a real job. His only other "job" was a community organizer in Chicago. That job amounted to handing out free money and favors in return for favors and money. Granted, that is basically what goes in Washington too, but Obama does not have the skills to play with the big boys. It was one thing, knocking heads with the jokers on Chicago street corners, knocking heads in Washington is quite a different matter.

newsworthy I dislike the elitist attitude. There are way too many unanswered question about Obama. When Congress refused to open the doors for his undocumented democrats he did it with executive privilege, that is the same thing Hugo Chaves did. Obama has been given a pass on every rotten thing he has done by the media. Benghazi is worse than Watergate and the media brushes it under the table. I have never in my long years ever heard of a President who refuses to let the survivors of Benghazi testify before Congress and that includes Monica Lewinski's boyfriends wife Hillary. Also I have no problem giving you an email to contact me and we can talk, heck, I'll meet you for lunch and or a couple beers.

Betty Hughes is absolutely right in her letter ("If Latin Kings are so good, let them clean gang tags") -- I wondered the same thing as I read the original article.
