Editor's note: Columbus City Council has passed a sidewalk ordinance that would require (when feasible) the building of sidewalks in any new development.

Openly gay Chief U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker's decision to overturn the voter approved Proposition 8, that defines marriage as between one man and one woman in California, slices at the jugular of true democracy.
I disagree will the comments by Charlie Box concerning the four-day work week by the public works in the July 20 issue of the Dispatch.
