Today's Opinions

  • King a good choice in November

    To the editor:
    For me, most of the major TV stations don’t like reporting some of the things that affect most of us, so I watch Fox News and recently learned that a lot of our tax dollars are going out fraudulently to people who basically get away with robbing the actual taxpayers.

  • Not believing in God is ‘ultimate absurdity’

    To the editor:
    First there is absolutely no evidence against the existence of God. While this is a negative argument, nevertheless, evidence for the existence of God can be found in logic and reason with the use of historical events.

  • By any standard, Jesus is real

    To the editor:
    I am writing in response to Jerry Milburn’s guest column last week regarding faith columnist Jess Thompson’s piece titled “Facts non-believers don’t want to read.”
    Mr. Milburn said that Jesus is not a historical person because he is only found in the Bible, which Mr. Milburn considers unreliable.

  • Seeing more clearly without religion

    To the editor:
    The following is in response Jerry Milburn’s guest column in last week’s paper titled “Facts that Christians want to ignore.”
    I believe as Mr. Milburn. I believe that many non-believers know more about the Bible than believers.
    I have had an interest in religion and the truth since I was in college. After my divorce in 2001, I found I had little money and a lot of time on my hands.

  • Thanks for printing Thompson’s column

    To the editor:
    I want to express my thanks and gratitude for you including Jess Thompson as a faith columnist. I do not know him personally, but I like his column and information.
    As a retired Christian minister and evangelist for 50 years full time, I feel in reading his column to know when he is doing what is right. I appreciate his ministry.

  • Apologies to the Class of 2013

    Dear Anderson County high school seniors, Class of 2013:
    I apologize in advance.
    Many of you won’t read this column, because according to some of your elders, you’ve never seen a newspaper.
    For those who decided to engage in the archaic ritual of reading the weekly newspaper, I’d like to extend an apology on behalf of others who believe today’s youth don’t know how to string a sentence together unless it includes text speak like “LOL” or “OMG.”  

  • Who among you will raise a hand in public?

    A private show of hands, please, from those who think that the state Transportation Cabinet’s efforts to use political candidate Kent Stevens to deliver “contingency” road paving funds to Anderson County was not politically motivated in any way. (See story, A1.)
    C’mon, no one’s looking. Even you lifelong Democrats who can’t stand Republicans — especially Republicans like Kim King — can raise your hands.

  • Weeds, wildflowers thrive in dry conditions

    One thing I know for sure, the drought has toughened up the weeds.
    Since I mulch with newspapers and straw, I use my hands to pull up any weeds that appear in the garden. Some I leave, because the bugs like them better than anything I plant. Most others I pull and I’ve got the cuts on my hands to show for it.
