Primary Pain

I have dreaded August since January. Augusts in even numbered years mean one thing to me … I will be losing my mind (even more than normal). Augusts contain Back-to-School sections, County Fair...

 

Losing a listener

Editor, My heart is heavy with sadness as I compose this letter. I think the powers that be could have been more sensitive and forth coming to the public with our health care provider issues instead of the way it was handled. However righteous you...

 

Defining terms

Editor, After many questions by several different people, I thought I would help clear up what the difference in a PA (Physician Assistant), NP (Nurse Practitioner: may have different first initial depending on specialty, for instance FNP is family...

 

Few like him

Dear Editor and readership: In my years living in this Valley and elsewhere, which includes several working in administration at Beth Israel Hospital in Boston, I have encountered few physicians like Dr. Bryan Kaiser. His combination of attention to...

 

Whiskey changed my life

Providence has thrown a lot of interesting jobs at me over the years, but honestly, most just sort of happened by being in the right place at the right time. That is true to a major degree when it...

 

Letter to the Editor

Editor, I would like to respond to a couple of comments from the August 1st edition of The Saratoga Sun’s coverage of the political forums: “I think we are over training or over requiring on some of those requirements” and, “It doesn’t...

 

Letter to the Editor

Editor, Heads up Saratoga. Our landfill will not accept any plastic for recycling. Any plastic taken to the Saratoga Landfill along with any glass will be buried. Please don’t blame the landfill attendant, Steve. He is just doing what his boss,...

 

Keeping Carbon County quirky

Fairly recently I have run some photos of the Carey sisters. These photos ran for two weeks in a row because they showed up for both the Independence Day celebrations Saratoga held and the...

Be an ambassador

The Good Times Valley has a lot to offer people both from out-of-town and out-of-state. We are home to a number of inclusive resorts, the only hot springs outside of Yellowstone and Thermopolis and...

 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, I cannot believe the Saratoga Sun staff is endorsing having children play with fireworks. I had to look twice in the photos of Medicine Bow, when I saw small children playing with fireworks and then saw it was supervised by the Medicine...

Medicine Bow recently demonstrated what we at the Saratoga Sun feel is a good idea. The town allowed children and adults alike to play with fireworks. The reason this was allowed is that the county, despite having a fireworks ban, cedes authority to...

 

Remember the teachers

I was out in my garden last Sunday afternoon and did a twist of my back somehow and by the evening, I was in major pain. Gut wrenching torture, that made me want to puke; I couldn’t walk for more th...

 

Groggy notes, or, the Zorro of the Saratoga Sun

Little pay and no glory

On June 28, a shooter claimed five lives at the Capital Gazette in Annapolis, Md. after he shot out the front window of the building that housed the newspaper and roamed the newsroom with a shotgun....

 

Carbon County makes you tough

It is no secret I have lived in a fair amount of places in my life, but I really don't think I have ever lived an area that can have such different weather that is less than 40 miles apart. This...

School is out, Memorial Day has passed and summer has arrived in an even numbered year. This signals, among other things, the beginning of the campaign season for elections. The deadline for filing as a candidate in the midterm primary elections was...
