Letter: Please Shovel Your Sidewalks
Letter to the Editor,
01:00PM / Tuesday, January 09, 2018

To the Editor:

I often see people pushing babies in strollers, disabled people with rascals and wheelchairs, as well as child and adult pedestrians, walking in the street because many sidewalks aren't cleared. I, myself, broke my tailbone, slipping on an icy sidewalk that wasn't salted or sanded a few years ago!

Other towns I've lived in fine landlords, business owners, and home owners for not keeping town sidewalks surrounding their buildings clear of snow and ice. The whole sidewalk too, not just a path the width of a shovel. I'm surprised there

By Bill Schmick,
10:09AM / Saturday, January 06, 2018
The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained a thousand points in a month. In just the first three days of 2018, all three U.S. averages hit consecutive record highs. Overseas indexes did even better.   Japan, for example, was up more than 3 percent on its first trading day of the year. Emerging markets continue to make new highs, while European bourses continue to climb. Those who expected the markets to tank in the New Year have thus far been wrong. How long can this last?   Short sellers, convinced that stocks just have to come down, bet on a market decline and have had their head handed to them on a daily basis. Undeterred, they point to the "overbought" indicators that
