  • Letter: Marrett is an asset to the community

    Stevie Lowery, you should be ashamed of yourself.  When you first became editor of the paper I was proud of you for accomplishing this at such a young age. This is the first time I have thought that maybe you were not experienced enough because I think the editorial in last weeks issue was the most childish article I have read. 

    You say that Kenny (Marrett) was personally attacking Chris (Hamilton). Excuse me, but are you not doing the same to him?  

  • 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.
