Today's Opinions

  • From our readers - Climate change is real

    After reading your recent editorial “Don’t Fall for Fake News” I was inspired by how much we agree. Fake news is dangerous. Readers and viewers must double-check it for accuracy, whether it comes from the Internet or CBS, NBC, CNN or even FOX.

  • From our readers - Presidential election recount is just more partisan politics

    The federal election is completed and the country has overwhelmingly elected Donald Trump as our next president. The electoral vote was 306 for Trump (including Michigan) to 232 for Clinton. Now we can move forward and get down to business, right?

  • From our readers - Raffle winners announced

    We would like to thank those that were at or who participated in the drawing held Saturday night for the Dawson Moore Scholarship Fund raffle.

    The gifts given away were a Thanksgiving basket and a handmade afghan. Amanda Riley was the winner of the Thanksgiving basket and Herman Johnson was the winner of the afghan.

    All the funds taken in will go to the Dawson Moore Scholarship Fund for a student who graduates high school in 2020 to attend college. Again, your donations were greatly appreciated and will be put to a good cause.

  • The truth about Thanksgiving

    A 25-year-old actress, whom I had never heard of, made headlines last week when she claimed that Thanksgiving was “founded on a massacre” - a theme promoted by many politically correct history revisionists who seem intent on making villains of every European to ever step ashore on this continent.

    Thanksgiving was not founded on a massacre, but on a notion to recognize God’s divine providence, protection and provision for those earliest settlers.

  • Don’t fall for fake news

    In the wake of Donald Trump’s huge upset of Hillary Clinton earlier this month in the presidential election, the current finger of blame is being pointed at something called “fake news.”

    Those who are still scratching their heads trying to figure out how their polls were so wrong, are concluding that fictional or made-up stories that circulated on social media conspired to doom Clinton’s campaign. Thus, the newest issue being addressed by the media is the onslaught of what they call “fake news” and the need to combat it.

  • A time for Thanks and Giving

    On Thursday, most of us will gather with family and friends for a delicious meal. We’ll bow our heads and give thanks for all the blessings we’ve been given, including the bountiful feast that sits before us.

    We truly have much to be thankful for. Even in a nation that’s often divided by politics and in homes divided over sports teams and by generational gaps, we can all agree that the liberties and freedoms we have as Americans warrant a spirit of gratefulness.

  • From our readers - Two schools work together to recycle used books

    What do schools do with all those books? Of course the answer is students read them and it is apparent by how well our school district is doing.

    Have you ever wondered what happens when those well-used books need to be replaced? The answer is, more students read them. A statement that has never been so true about S.C.E.S and T.E.S.

  • From our readers - Thanks for all who helped make election go smoothly

    The election is finally completed and I’m sure that, like me, you are relieved. The changes were many both in the Commonwealth and nationally. As a County Board of Election member, we were preparing for a large turnout and the questions that result from so many newly registered voters and voters who haven’t cast a ballot in awhile. The citizens were definitely motivated this year.
