Is it needed? Dear Editor   The railroad bridge has become a bridge to nowhere. It is only shortcut. It may be convenient for a few people but is the convenience worth 4 million dollars?  Granted 3.6 million are federal dollars but they are in short supply or really nonexistent.  More important is...

America first To the Editor: I am not sure where Mr. French has been the past four years, but he certainly has not been in the country I have been living in.
