Today's Opinions

  • City dog, country dog

    My dogs are city slickers.
    There, as painful as it is to admit, I’ve said it.
    Me? Uh-uh. No way. I’m not a city slicker and, despite some recent unsettling realizations to the contrary, I can prove it.
    It became obvious that my dogs had succumbed to city life when I visited a local farm during my never-ending quest to find the perfect place to hunt deer. (Fact: City slickers don’t hunt, although some of the posers will occasionally wear camouflage.)

  • Lessons learned from gardening mistakes

    I really love silver linings. Sometimes, however, it’s really tough to find them.
    Take this summer for example. We’ve had a high number of insect pests, unseasonably hot weather and record low rainfall. Needless to say, it has been a challenging summer for gardeners and farmers.

  • 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.
