Today's Opinions

  • Playing games or developing addictions?

    “Video games are the modern-day version of playing catch.”

    I read that quote recently, and while I hate to admit it, I know it’s true.

    I have a soon-to-be 12-year-old son. ‘Nough said, right?

  • Remembering Andrew Cecil

    Recently, I reflected on memories of a great young man, Andrew Cecil. He attended University of Louisville and majored in political science. He was a hardworking and dedicated “A” student. He never complained even though he was fighting cancer at the same time he was attending UofL. He was taking the last class he needed to graduate but could not finish due to his declining health. He withdrew from the class and a short time later he lost his battle with cancer. He died in October of 2011 at age 25.

  • God Bless America

    Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness are the values on which our great nation was founded. Written in the Declaration of Independence, these words ring true for all Americans and have held fast for more than two centuries. Ratified on July 4, 1776, the Declaration has long been held in the hearts of the American people as a source of hope and inspiration to protect the freedoms we hold so dear.

  • Journalism is so important right now

    As an editor, even in a small town like Lebanon, I’m sure you feel pressure in a day when journalism is being mercilessly attacked and a Maryland newsroom becomes a shooting gallery.

    We citizens are counting on professionals like you to continue fighting for truth, justice, and the American way! We need ethical journalists all over the country now more than ever.

  • New Lincoln Trail Youth Academy explores today’s local careers

    The new Lincoln Trail Youth Academy is offering a summer job like no other. It’s an opportunity for young adults to explore local careers in high-demand fields, gain work experience and learn the job search and soft skills they need for long-term success. 

    Plus, they’ll earn $9 per hour for their time spent at a workplace or in a classroom. 

  • A little boy named José

    I can’t stop thinking about a 5-year-old little boy named José.

    José and his father recently fled the violence in Honduras and ventured to the United States, where they were separated at the border. José’s father was arrested and sent to a detention facility, and José was flown to a foster home in Michigan. 

  • Letter to the Editor

    I would just like to commend Marion County School Superintendent Taylora Schlosser and the Marion County Board of Education for allowing St. Augustine students to participate in athletic events with their schools. This decision will now allow our students to play and engage with other students in the county and elsewhere as they grow both academically and athletically in these formative years. It is great to partner with Marion County schools as we all want the best for the students in this county.
