Gold and Silver Mine is not associated with aggressive online advertisers Gold and Silver Mine is not associated with aggressive online advertisers I experienced an interesting development after I wrote last week’s column about scams and telemarketers. I checked The Beachcomber Newspaper’s online edition to make sure I met the deadline for publication and to review a few of my previous articles. To my surprise, right next to my article was an ad from a company offering a guide to buying silver as an investment. Since a reader could mistake the ad for something I offered or condoned, I decided to follow up and apply for their literature just to see what they were about.

Letter: City auditor, manager did a fine job Letter: City auditor, manager did a fine job To the editor:

Elections have consequences, as in November 2104, particularly when control of a governing body passes from one political party to another. Changes are made in important appointed positions. Let’s not forget the immediate predecessors of the new appointees who are now gone, subject to the political winds. We refer to two positions, both of which should be appointments based solely on merit. They are the municipal auditor and the city manager.
