  • Letter: Marrett’s intentions are honest, genuine

    This letter is being written in regards to the last editorial. I found the statements to be very one-sided, opinionated, and simply slanderous. I felt compelled to write this letter for one simple reason, I felt as though the blasphemy was much more than what I believe the community needed or wanted to read.

  • Letter: Editorial was ‘juvenile’

    I grew up in Lebanon and I still read the paper every week. I am not usually an outspoken person, but after reading the editorial in last week’s issue, I had to respond. Stevie Lowery is entitled to her opinion, just as everyone is, but since I don’t have a page in the weekly paper dedicated to my opinion, this is the only option I have, so this is how WE see it.

  • Letter: Public apology

    My most sincere apology to Mr. and Mrs. J. D. Bell for not recognizing either at the recent Black History Program. Both are long time, most supportive members, of the Marion County Branch NAACP. Both serve on the Executive Board. 

    This oversight should be attributed to the mind and certainly not the heart.

  • Educated Public

    As the Marion County Board of Education goes through the process of hiring a new superintendent for the second time in less than two years, its members must be aware that everyone is watching.

    We’ve said it before and we’ll repeat it here: The selection of a superintendent is the single most important decision the board will make. Other decisions are certainly important, but none are as big as who will be the next leader of our school district.

  • Life is good for Charlie Sheen, or is it?

    Watching someone self-destruct is disturbing.

    Watching someone you love self-destruct is torture.

    So, last week while most people were laughing at Charlie Sheen, star of “Two And A Half Men,” and his bizarre interviews on television and the radio, I couldn’t help but feel sorry for him.

  • Prison bill is landmark legislation

    Long after a legislative session is in the history books, it is often remembered by just one or two of its most prominent bills. Early last week, the General Assembly gave its overwhelming approval to the one that will almost certainly top this year’s list.
