From: John Fearnall
Subject: A suggestion
As our board is currently facing two significant problems, a budget deficit due to sickness and an excess amount of space due to a precipitous decline in enrollment, I would like to make the following proposal. Rather than building a new "learning

Oh hell no!
Not now you don't.
You don't get to sit there, clutching your pearls, being all shocked and horrified at the number of 'me too' statuses on Facebook.
When you were wagging your finger at your daughter's short skirt, concerned that she was 'just asking for it', asking to be...

wheat- by Stewart Wells

In 2014, a longtime advocate for grain trade deregulation and a former researcher for the Western Canadian Wheat Growers Association was quoted in the ag press as saying "I don't remember one serious conversation about market power and the dangers it imposed."

We published that letter, along with a response from Grey Roots.

Former Grey County Warden Arlene Wright also wrote a response to Mr. Cummings, which we have published here along with Mr. Cummings' reply to Mrs. Wright.
