While many politicians carry big sticks these days, Tom Young’s endorsement of Stephanie Miner for mayor was refreshingly low-key
Score one for our town. There was a former mayor, standing on the steps of City Hall, speaking so softly that he could barely be heard over the din of a truck idling at a nearby red light.

In this flurry of celebrity passings, the July 1 death of Alexis Arguello, one-time boxing champion and most recently, the mayor of Managua, Nicaragua, may have passed by without much notice.
