Today's Opinions

  • LETTER: Appreciates Guthrie's support

     Congress is debating several key policy issues, including legislation to prevent a nearly 30 percent reimbursement cut to physicians and other healthcare providers under Medicare (the so-called “doc fix”). Part of the debate involves how to offset the costs associated with these policies so that the national budget deficit is not increased. Keeping the deficit in check is necessary, though cost offsets within the Medicare program should not disproportionately impact particular healthcare providers. 

  • Amber Thurman's co-workers share their thoughts at her passing

    What’s in a name 

    One of the funniest memories I have of Amber is in my third year teaching.

  • LETTER: Help Me Help Others says thank you

     We would like to thank everyone who came out in some way and supported the Help Me Help Others Ministries.

    We along with you and so many others in this wonderful community help us help so many in their time of need. You know all need a lift and a helping hand sometime in our lives.

  • COLUMN: Don't torture yourself ... that's my job

      While my husband Bud and I were attempting to find something decent to watch on television the other night – and it’s a desert out there, I tell ya – I started thinking that it has been some years since I compiled a list of my favorite movie quotes.

  • Thank you, National Guard

     We would like to thank the National Guard for sponsoring our Holiday Classic basketball tournament over winter break.

  • LETTER: Red Hill Cemetery Commission meets Jan. 9

     Monday, Jan. 9 marks one of only two times a year the Red Hill Cemetery Commission meets to discuss issues concerning the cemetery.

    My concerns are:

    1. Resurfacing or repairing the current driveway due to the general condition of the pavement.

    2. Widening and or providing pull-off areas where possible. This would allow people to move over to the side of the road while paying respect, allowing others to pass by easily. This would prevent driving over the graves.

  • COLUMN: Holiday expectations lead to frustration

     All of us begin thinking about the holidays with great expectations. On the side of the positives, we think of how great it will be to see family, gorge ourselves on all sorts of food that isn't good for us and how much the experience will bring us closer together. It is as if we set up the scenarios in our minds of humorous anecdotes to share, the exact schematic of how the family get-together will play out and it will end in classic movie fashion wrapped in a bow.
