    Michelle Bigelbach, The Courier|Oct 26, 2022

  • What If Government Actually Ran Like The Private Sector?

    Oct 26, 2022

    PAID POLITICAL CONTENT Dear Editor, If government ran more like the private sector, government would be better. Having spent most of my 30-year career in the private sector, I agree. I earned a role as the Senior Director of Operations for a company that employed 8,000 trade workers whose skill and experience determined whether we succeeded. We worked on Military assets, so failure was not an option. The private sector posts job openings including the required skills/experience and applicants...

I offer this response apolitically, and only to express caution to readers about relying on the assertions of the letter, as many of them...

  • Packing Coffee

    Gwen Cornwell|Oct 26, 2022

    If you or your family has had the opportunity to pack a meal for a branding crew or other livestock gatherings, you may remember the days that coffee was not made and packed to the site in thermos bottles, rather the coffee was most often made over the branding fire or such. I remember my first exposure to made on site coffee when branding. I must admit it was rather strong but then that may have been the way that the crew at the time really liked it.

  • Critical Thinking And The Voting Process

    Oct 26, 2022

    Dear Editor, While teaching international physicians about leadership concepts at Stanford University, one of the most difficult growing and mind-expansive efforts was in the realm of critical thinking.

In contrast, other physicians had more difficulty moving from their subjective biases in their thought processes. However, the...
