CLEAR SPRING -- Uncle Sam quizzed Clear Spring Elementary School students Thursday afternoon during a rally held to educate the students before a miniature election at the school Friday morning. But when Uncle Sam - also known as fourth-grade teacher Craig Koons - asked why some of the teachers couldn't yet run for president, one little boy got the answer very, very wrong. "I think it's because most of them are girls," he said. Of course, the correct answer was because some of the teachers are not yet 35, the age for presidential candidates mandated by the United States Constitution.

Sadly, it seems Saturday Night Live (SNL) is the only unabashed TV entity to name names in our economic meltdown fiasco. And yes, the U.S. is really askew no, upsidedown, when Ralph Nader starts to make sense.

Obama isn't man for U.S. To the editor: On Sat., Oct. 11, I read one of the most intelligent and well written letters I have ever seen published on the opinion page of this newspaper. It was written by Christina Elgin and I'd like to commend her and let her know how much I appreciate her views, with which I agree 100 percent.

He has been groomed by rich and powerful forces and if he wins, this country and democracy, as we know it today, will no longer exist and socialism will reign.

"I have lived in the Cavetown area for a number of years now, so I'm familiar of where the school bus stops are. When approaching these areas, I keep safety in mind. What concerns me is the choice of location for two of the stops. (Old Georgetown Road/Route 66, and the one in front of the planing mill). Why are these stops located near a 'blind curve'? The bus drivers should deploy the stop signs before coming to a complete stop. " - Cavetown "If it's about acting, I give Gov. Palin an A+. However, as we all understand, you cannot rehearse when you are the focus point of not just being vice president, but the ability of being commander in chief when called upon.
