Today's Opinions

  • Run like a girl

    "Running is like celebrating your soul. There's so much it can teach us in life."

    - Molly Barker, founder and executive director of Girls on the Run

     

    Every time I step on the pavement in my running shoes, I make new observations of how life and running are so very similar.

    Life is hard. So is running.

    Both take dedication, heart, endurance, guts, strength and humility.

  • Letter: Historic solution to a historic problem

    Congress has an opportunity this week to make a historic decision that would permanently change the culture of spending in Washington. Our nearly $15 trillion of accumulated debt is a threat to our nation's economic recovery, our national security and the welfare of future generations. 

    We have already succeeded in changing the debate in Washington from "How much can we spend?" to "How much can we cut?" Now, we must go even further and pass a Balanced Budget Amendment.

  • Letter: Treated differently
  • Live action theater back in Lebanon

    Yeah, that's me with a stick of dynamite in my mouth.

    I wonder, would the Turtleman consider that "Live Action?"

    Sure, I'm not catching snapping turtles with my bare hands or getting sprayed on by skunks, but I'm going to be trying to escape from a villain on stage in front of (I hope) a packed Angelic Hall Friday night.

    And, anyone that knows Lynn Farris knows how truly evil he can be...

    (Kidding, Lynn.)

  • In the spotlight

    We can understand why Anthony Epps would be upset.

    We doubt anyone wants to have their name in the paper for being arrested for DUI. The same would be true for whatever punishment is handed down from the courts if that person is found or pleads guilty.

  • Much Ado About Nothing

    The recent discussions regarding the possible need for school uniforms or a district-wide dress code has reminded us of the old adage, "If it's not broken, why fix it?"

  • Letter: Raising awareness for adoption

    November is Adoption Awareness month. In recognition of this unique way in which to become a family white ribbons will be worn.
