Use your time more productively

To the Editor:

How much time did you spend today on Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest?

All across America, people of all ages are engaging in the biggest time waster: social networking.

All you have to do is sit down at the computer and you are instantly hooked, even though you told yourself that you would only be on Facebook for five minutes, it soon turns into hours.

Erasing the arts

To the Editor:

In many schools all over the country, stages are dark, potter wheels sit in dusty piles and children are often undereducated in the arts.

Recently, due to the economics of the world today, schools have been experiencing budget cuts. As a result of these major cuts, schools have been taking away the students' ability to learn about the arts. Music, painting, drawing, singing, dancing, etc. have all been cut from the schools' syllabuses.

Restriction on gun access makes communities safer

To the Editor:

It is essential to consider the importance of gun control in order to reduce gun violence. Having more restrictions on people's access to guns will make our communities safer.

Opponents to gun control strongly resist attempts to limit access to guns. It is felt gun restrictions are a violation of the Second Amendment and that limiting legal access to guns will only reduce the number of law abiding gun owners. Gun control opponents agree people purchasing guns should not have a history of violent or drug related crimes and are not severely mentally ill.
