Talkback: What onlines readers say about …
As the mainstream providers switch to fiber optic networks themselves, I’m sure the price difference will decrease. As that happens, I feel confident Fibrant subscriptions will increase, balancing the books again.

Mr. Rhinier, your letter seems to make the assumption that the best leaders for our county are those to whom being (Republican) is a high priority. The voters have said otherwise. We are tired of politics. Give us wise leaders who care about the people, ALL the people, of Rowan County, and who can listen to all perspectives and make decisions without depending on party divisions.

I want my Republican Party back. The Rowan County incarnation of the Tea Party has ruined it enough. And it’s not that I disagree with Tea Party principles (on a national level)…. But it’s the extremism, the “you don’t 110% follow us so you’re trash” attitude, and the hypocrisy.

Talk about sour grapes. Low information voters? Perhaps you need to talk about your supporters of King Sides who didn’t come out and vote at all. That’s the people you need to be mad at. I think a large number of those who voted did have a lot of information.

Wes, take heart. For a little while the conservatives were caught flat-footed. But this is just an opening round. What I suggest is that conservatives show up in DROVES for the November election.
