Letter to the Editor: Proposed Charter Changes Rectify Shortcomings
By Ken Milder
Former County Councilor
When changes to our County Charter are proposed, I usually look at such proposals with a somewhat jaundiced eye.
Our Charter, after all, has served us well, with only minor changes, for nearly 45 years.
This is true for the most part. But, after so many years we start to see what works and what does not.
For many years the initiative, referendum, and recall provisions of the Charter have lacked clarity and, at times, inhibited the community’s effort to proceed with needed improvements.
The proposed changes rectify those shortcomings.
The grouping of the Charter Read More

Column: Link Between Back Pain and Spinal Posture
By Jessica Kisiel M.S.
Several painful back conditions – stenosis, disc bulge or herniation, spondylolisthesis and sciatica – are due to improper spinal alignment.

At the base of the spine are the sacrum and coccyx, which are segments of fused vertebrae.
