    MLK march, celebration Jan. 18
    Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was an instrument used by God to bring honor and dignity back to the United States of America by changing the face of society. No longer should we strive for the survival of the fittest but for the brotherly love that God ordained humanity to obtain. Slavery is a sport on America's history, and thanks to the courage and self-sacrifice of Dr. King and the many others who fought long and hard for the civil rights of all people, that spot is now a smudge.

    Missed opportunity
    Once again, the Marion County school board has “dropped the ball.” On the heels of all the recent discord between the board and the community, the board was completely “tone deaf” to the possibility of beginning to heal this rift.

  • Letter to the editor: What about public input?

    The Marion County school board voted at its Nov. 25 meeting to hold its regular meetings on Thursdays at 4 p.m. for 2015. Jerry Evans cast the only opposing vote and was the only board member who advocated on behalf of his constituents for more convenient public access. It is reasonable to consider the contempt that this administration has for the public they purport to serve.

  • Letter to the editor: ‘Honoring those who serve behind the ones who wear the uniform’

    On Veterans Day, we remember the men and women who served in our Armed Forces. Over the next few days, many television channels will air movies that display their courage and character, and all of us can be inspired by these soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines.

  • Letter to the editor: Proud of Mills

    As I write this, I have no idea of the outcome of our election. But, I just want to say how proud I am of Terry Mills and the speech he delivered at Centre Square on Sunday night, Nov. 2, for the way he defended himself and the Democratic Party.

  • Letter: Sen. McConnell votes against helping those in need

     Finally the truth about Sen. Mitch McConnell is coming out. With all the money from corporations and billionaires such as the Koch Bros., they are trying to buy the election. So far, it is not working. Even with all the dishonest ads, trying to connect Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes to our President, Sen. Harry Reed and saying she is against coal, it isn’t working, because truth wins out.

  • Letter: Mitch McConnell is obsessed with President Obama

     We are being bombarded with campaign ads that assault our intelligence. A single glance at the litter on the airwaves and in our mailboxes would have us believing that President Obama is on the ballot. He’s not. Like him or not, he remains President of the United States for two more years – and will not be on the ballot again.
