Our view: Vaccines still best for children
Here we go again. Just a few years ago, mumps infections had fallen to 229 cases nationwide. That was 2012, and it was just on the cusp of this new trend that has some parents choosing to not vaccinate their children against common childhood diseases. In 2016, the number climbed...

Editorial: A strategy disregarded by so many
“Never joke with the press,” American novelist Erica Jong once said. “Irony doesn’t translate into print.” The same could be said for comments on the internet and its myriad social media formats. It’s a sound philosophy, yet a strategy disregarded by so many.

Our Opinion: Bad idea to cut tourism marketing
