Once again they messed up the title of their article. I am pretty sure he is helping to fight HEART disease. What is hearD disease anyway?

I think that they were cut from the staff when the computer came in and money got tight.

There's so much illness in this city. I hope everyone takes a few minutes to make a small donation to capped or a charity that helps the community. Whether it be $5 or $50, anything helps. Also, ask when they will be having a yard sale fundraiser. We can all donate to those and be rid of clutter.

You'd think someone from the paper would go in and edit the online page for the article and the comments.

As for Wilson's mission, I wish you much success. My next donation to the American Hear Association will be in honor of your mother.

What a great way to honor your mom and millions who come down with this disease. Wish I could join you, make it an annual run and I'd be glad to participate next year. Ride safe

Here is another one from today's paper. It really had me scratching my head.

Suspected racehorse con arrainged

At first I thought an animal was suspected of being a crooked racehorse and had been "arrainged (sic)."

By the way, calling a suspect a "con" in a headline is risking libel.

That said, the ride to research heart disease is an honorable cause. Best of luck to Mr. Wilson.
