Today's Opinions

  • The important thing is that God’s people worship

    Before the worship service started we had eaten dinner together, me with my tape recorder and notebook by my side.

    I don’t normally go to church on Wednesday nights, but I had come to New Beginnings Fellowship in Hernando, Fla., for a Religion page feature story and to take notes about their worship.

    As the people entered the sanctuary, some grabbed musical instruments from a cardboard box in the back of the room — maracas and wooden sticks, cymbals and tambourines. During the first song, people used the instruments, making their own music.

  • The nation’s educational system has lowered standards

    To the editor:

  • Vocational school budget is ‘the leanest in the history’ of system

    To the editor:

     It was my pleasure to participate in the KY Tech- Harrison County Area Technology Center’s annual fall steering committee meeting led by Principal John White. I want to thank businesses and school leaders who support career and technical education programs offered at the school.

  • Concerned family should get involved with school’s PTO

    To the editor:

    I would like to respond to the grandparent that was told that the PTO is responsible for getting playground equipment. The PTO is an organization that assists the school in buying computer programs, playground equipment, and materials/resources needed to help our teachers teach. I do not understand what she meant by competition. There is no competition between the PTOs. Fundraisers are held to raise money for all of the requests that they are given. The PTO then has to decide what they can pay for.

  • HCHS cheerleaders host alumni brunch next weekend

    The HCHS cheerleaders invite all former HCHS cheerleaders and former HCHS cheerleading coaches to an alumni brunch to be held on Saturday, Oct. 10.

  • ‘The wind that is God’s Spirit blows where it wants...’

    The day after my niece’s wedding, my sister and I went to the California desert town of Temecula.

    When I was growing up, Temecula was nothing but sand and tumbleweeds. Today, it looks like most every modern suburban sprawl with a CVS and Burger King on nearly every corner.

    My sister and I went to the restored old town of Temecula, with its cute boutiques, restaurants and antique stores.

  • Stop means stop: Disregarding traffic devices

    Traffic signals and stop signs are placed at intersections for a reason, and the reason is so that people can proceed through the intersection without running into another vehicle. The problem that we have here in our community is that a lot of people driving today do not stop. It seems that everyone is in a hurry for whatever reason.

  • Presidential address didn’t require permission

    On Tuesday, Sept. 8, 2009, the President of these United States spoke to school-aged children across the nation via a television address. I was confident my children, in attendance at a public elementary school in the Harrison County school district, would be viewing and listening to this address. It was directed, after all, to them.
