    “Record,” as we call it in the newsroom, is a page we all know is important to our readers. But, we also sometimes feel the angst of dealing with News of Record, usually the next-to-the-last page in our A section, the one that contains, obituaries, police reports and court business.

    To the editor:

    I have to disagree with my friend Ben Newell, a truly good man, with his advice not to vote (Madison Courier, March 20).

I agree we should let our senators and representatives know our beliefs, but my advice is then to vote your values.
