There is a big wide world out there and it’s just begging to be explored. Will you be the one to deny the call of the wild? Really? Madame G hopes not. In fact, she recommends that you get...

Letter to the Editor: Put a gag on President Trump

President Trump needs to be gagged.

And apparently all we have left to do it is the public pressure and Congressional approbation to get the job done.

In the old Vaudeville days when an actor was bad they used a hook to pull him off the stage. We can’t do that with President Trump, but we need to.  He is antagonizing the nutcase in North Korea.

We don’t need another foreign conflict.

We have been in Afghanistan for 16 years and can’t seem to pull out. We never should have invaded Iraq. Saddam Hussein was killing 350 people a year.  Since our intervention a half million Iraqis’ have died. President Obama said that Assad in Syria should go.

Now half of Syria is in Europe...

Aries (March 21-April 19)



You’ve got this! Your fellow fire sign is leading the way this month and you may graciously take heart and support. Others may offer you a helping hand and it’s a beautiful thing. You may long for days of peace—they’ll come. Don’t let a little work or spit and polish get you down. You can...

Partnership-style loan helps Cedar Crest grocer thrive

E-mail Print PDF
The era of big box retailers and internet giants like Amazon have made it easy to write off local independent businesses. But Rita Riebling, co-owner and managing partner of Triangle Grocery in Cedar Crest, has built a business that local and surrounding communities rely on. Nevertheless, you won’t hear Riebling say that running an independent grocery store is an easy task.

To stay relevant and keep business buzzing, Riebling has worked hard and made strategic moves at opportune times. She recently purchased the building that’s home to Triangle Grocery and bought out her partners so that she and her husband Morey would have controlling interest in the grocery store.

The management...
