    Voter Empowerment Act could ease fraud hysteria

    Kobach’s voter suppression is hardly a source of pride

    To the Editor: Roger Seymour’s letter in last Wednesday’s Mercury about data on voter fraud and the paper’s “charade” against Secretary of State Kris Kobach has all the makings of misinformation and hysteria mas-querading as truth. Seymour cites a study by the

    Let’s help our churches lead in struggle for justice

    To the Editor: Once again, I am embarrassed.  Leonard Pitts has that way of getting to me, but this time he really hit home with his op-ed piece in the Miami Herald with the headline: “Christianity Often Too Slow to See the Light.” Why

    Volunteers enhance unique Discovery Center experience

    To the Editor: A volunteer by definition: a person who voluntarily offers themselves for a service or undertaking; a person who performs a service willingly and without pay. Volunteering has been synonymous with American causes for well over 200 years. From a free will act of

    Sherow will bring respect, cooperation to Congress

    To the Editor: I was so glad to see the article on March 30 about Jim Sherow running against Tim Huelskamp in the First District congressional race. We have a choice for our next U.S. Representative. I choose Jim Sherow because he will listen and
