Sunday Blog: Talking Chicken Little, peaceful protest, Ivanka Trump and Elmer Fudd

Commentary by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Five years ago I wrote a column “Hey, Wellington. Perhaps we should send Chicken Little packing” (see column here).

I pulled that column up July 19, 2015, and had a good chuckle. In five years, not a dang thing has changed. People were all up in arms about the high utility rates, then-mayor Shelley Hansel and future mayor Jim Valentine were overreacting about something, and people were worried about the hospital possibly closing right then and there. Nothing ever changes.

My best line:

“I couldn’t get out of bed in fear someone might have a nervous breakdown because I was using the wrong toothpaste.”

The thing is, Chicken Little did not pack and instead has a thriving business going. Here are three subjects in particular where Chicken Little is the mob kingpin.

The peaceful protest
