Reader: This letter is in response to Jack Balfanz’s letter about that April 28 editorial cartoon by Bob Englehart ("Is this cartoon proof, at long last, of TBC's atheism?," May 5). The cartoon is a disgusting cheap shot against evangelicals. Evangelicals and Christians did not vote for Dona…

Reader: I have always suspected that TBC Media was an atheist enterprise. As a result of the cartoon you published on April 28, I am now 100 percent sure of it. Your depiction of The Last Supper, captioned with the words, "One of you will betray me," spoken by Christ and referring to a comed…

Reader: I'm not often prone to writing to newspaper columnists but I felt the need to in regard to your answer to Kathy Frith on marijuana ("Was it irresponsible to put pot smokers on the front page?," Sound Off, April 21). I take exception to your, and other media outlets', using the term "…

Everything was turning around for the Fox Theater Foundation. A new house manager. New faces on the board of directors. A new, simpler business model. And a collective resolve, in the wake of the Bob Bender affair, to be more vigilant landlords, and responsible stewards, of the municipal tre…

I haven't purchased any wedding cakes recently but a few months ago I did drop some major coin on an acre-sized, made-to-order monstrosity from a prominent local bakery. Selecting its flavor and design was not unlike the process of ordering a hoagie at a deli: turkey, provolone, jalapeños an…
