Today's Opinions

  • DIY Fright Night

    People like being scared.

    Not all the time, but with certain safeguards in place, people enjoy a good startle.

    That's why roller coasters and horror films remain popular. They give us a chance to experience something spooky without any serious risk of real physical harm, assuming the rides are inspected and regularly maintained.

    With Halloween fast approaching, we'll see plenty of ghouls, ghosts and goblins roaming the streets.

  • Postal leaders should take a pay cut

    Since I'm told that Marion County has 10 post offices counting the main post office, how does the management decide which one to close?

    Since the Bradfordsville Post Office has been picked to close because of its dwindling income, isn't there a way to solve this post office issue?

    It can't be income. The Bradfordsville income for 2011 is higher than the year of 2010.

    If the USPS needs to cut a large amount of overspending, why not stop Saturday deliveries?

  • Letter: Commitment to patient safety

    Perioperative nursing is a specialized area of nursing practice. The perioperative registered nurse works in collaboration with other healthcare professionals, which may include the surgeon, anesthesia provider, surgical assistant, and other assistive personnel. The perioperative registered nurse provides nursing care to surgical patients, preoperatively, intraoperatively, and postoperatively, often in the role of circulating registered nurse. 

  • Living faith better than preaching it

    The 1st Amendment to the Constitution of the United States states that while Americans have the right to practice a religion of their choice, no government body has the right to establish a religion.

  • Trying to see a bigger picture

    Taking photos of tragic events is not something I enjoy nor is it something I take lightly. 

    At my first full-time newspaper job, one of the first accidents I covered involved a car that ran off the side of the road and flipped over. The parents, who were wearing seat belts, survived. The children, who were not belted, were thrown from the vehicle and killed.

  • Runner’s High

    I made an observation while working traffic control during The Bourbon Chase Friday night and watching thousands of runners jog to and through Marion County Friday and into the wee hours of Saturday morning.

    Well, actually, I made several observations.
