Today's Opinions

  • Georgia gun bill produces differing opinions

    I’ll keep this short and sweet since we had so many great letters from our readers this week.

    I’m riding the fence so tightly that I’m getting splinters in my nether region.

    Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal has signed the Safe Carry Protection Act of 2014, or the “guns everywhere bill,” depending on your views.

    Is this bad legislation? I’m truly not sure.

  • City council should address lack of development

    While I was reading the front page of The Anderson News last week, I couldn’t help but laugh out loud. Mayor Edwinna Baker was talking about economic development in our community.

    Lawrenceburg is a great little town and it is steadily growing into a nice sized town, a town that I proudly call home. Now that being said, let me tell you about the laughter.

    When I think about 80,000 or so people coming to see our little town, what are they going to think when they look for a nice restaurant downtown to eat at? What will they think when they see a ghost town?

  • When close our ears, we close our minds

    Just this week I was browsing my facebook profile and catching up with what’s going on in friends’ lives like I often do and noticed a startling trend of people unfriending those with different political or religious views.

  • Speak up, rock the boat, roar... shoot, just use your voice

    My favorite part of any newspaper is the editorial section. We call ours the Opinion page. It’s the most critical component of a local newpaper, in my opinion.

    But it can also be a revealing page and not just because it tells the public’s view on a myriad of topics. When the Opinion page of a community newspaper is anemic, that is, lacking the voice of its readers, it’s a sign of apathy or a lack of belief in the power of a single voice.

  • Legislative session mostly successful, few issues missed

    Bowling Green Daily News

    The 2014 General Assembly session has officially ended, and overall, we believe our legislators did a good job for the people of this state during their time in Frankfort.

    One lawmaker, state Rep. Jim DeCesare, R-Ky., gave their performance an “A”. We would agree with DeCesare’s assessment.

  • Trees, glorious trees

    You know I’m a warm weather girl but I’ve got to say that little bit of snow here on the farm last week was just flat gorgeous! Brilliant white blanketed by emerald green made the landscape almost glimmer. Add the beauty of those blooming pink redbud trees with thick white snowflakes covering them and it was a site to behold.

    As I drove into town it was obvious that those of us on the ridge got quite a bit more snow than the rest of you. I’m sorry you missed it.

  • Editorial Cartoon -- Passing failure on the way to success
  • Glass should be reinstated as head softball coach at high school

    I am writing this letter for several reasons. Brian Glass is a friend and I am concerned about the situation that he finds himself in. Also, I am truly interested in getting some questions answered to help me better understand what is going on.
