Letter: Think carefully about golf course and water flow
By Ronald Wood, PhD, Worthington With the warmth of the last few days, we think of spring and the activities once again available. We should not mourn the loss of Prairie View Golf Links, as it is only a game. We should be mourning the loss of the best-kept water quality control system...

Letter: City needs to be playing chess, not checkers
By Ronald Wood, Worthington After reading the Daily Globe last week (Nov. 24), I did not know whether to laugh or cry. Our city leaders over the last year have demonstrated they are playing checkers while everyone else is playing chess. While voicing an economic development agenda,...
