Today's Opinions

  • Letter: Make closing decision sooner

    Something happened last year that I didn’t like, and it seems to be happening again this year. I hope it changes as we do have snow coming. All the other schools are on the news at night saying no school. Our darned school person, whoever he/she is, is not putting our notices out until 6 a.m. on the day of no school! This is not fair to us grandparents or our grandchildren!

  • Letter: Bourbon Chase a good time

    The Lebanon Tourist & Convention Commission and its director, Chris Hamilton, made the second running of The Bourbon Chase a huge success. The experience in Lebanon was greatly enhanced over year one. I look forward to working with Lebanon to improve it even more in 2011.

  • Letter: Learn about epilepsy

    More than three million Americans have epilepsy or a seizure disorder, and 50 million worldwide. I am one of thousands of volunteers working to raise awareness of this condition.

    Epilepsy is just as common as breast cancer, but many people know little about it or what to do when someone is having a seizure.

  • Letter: We need a budget

    Here we are on the brink again with Congress leaving Washington D.C. for a month or longer recess an no budget written for the fiscal year and the lawmakers having to pass a standby bill to keep the government running while they are out in the country seeking re-election in November. Just the fellows we need returning! Well, we know that a lot of them are not returning to D.C. next year.

  • Big decision

    No one is perfect.

    We all make mistakes. We don't always use the best judgment and, occasionally, we act before we think.

    We are human, after all.

  • How to deal with debt collectors

    By Linda Ireland

    A debt collector yelled at me this morning. I tried to yell back - but I think she hung up the phone before I got to that point.

    And I think it was a debt collector. She had all the required traits - attitude, persistence, hide like a water buffalo.

    The funny thing is ? it wasn't my debt.

  • Coordinated effort

    The Lebanon Tourist and Convention Commission was born of controversy, and many people have grumbled about it from the beginning.

    We have not agreed with every decision the commissioners have made, and we have not supported every idea tourism officials have presented to the community. Nevertheless, the tourism commission is worth preserving, and it has done good things in and for our community.
