Thursday, Oct. 30, 2014

Historically, the City of Arlington leased facilities to, and supported the sailing club on Lake Arlington at the Arkansas Lane Park. It served the community there with a variety of community programs and the city invested in the park for the past 48 years.

Ebola fears unwarranted

Thursday, Oct. 30, 2014

How ironic that the disconcerting article describing the Ebola-fearmongering Republicans (Perry, Cruz, Sen.

Heather Frazier has the right attitude: “ I am honored to be going there.”

Saving the prairie

Wednesday, Oct. 29, 2014

The article about Monarch butterflies’ international struggle to survive (see: “Plight of the Monarchs tied to drought, habitat,” Oct. 23) brought to mind all the years the Great Plains Restoration Council and local citizens have worked to save the Fort Worth Prairie Park, which is a Taj Mahal of pristine prairie for Monarchs and needs to be saved!

Reasonable restrictions

I am very respectful of healthcare workers who have chosen to go overseas to try to help diagnose and treat patients involved in these horrible epidemics.

As an Arlington native, Arlington High School and UTA graduate, and founding member of MPAC Arlington, I have a vested interest in making Arlington a better place to live, work and play!

Even at the peak of this year’s election season, we know it will quickly be over. And we know what’s next: the shift in attention to the 2016 presidential election. At least two Texas Republicans look like players, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz and Gov. Rick Perry. Do you believe either or both of them will run? What are their chances of winning? On the other side of the political spectrum, which Democrats look strongest and why? Is Hillary Clinton a shoo-in?
